woot woot !! 
Very nice Rob! I bet the hard part was the fold. I recall the "sssshhhhhhiiiiiieeeet" I've said
when I did mine assuming that radiator support was straight :D

You welded it from behind? Using rods or something else?

No matter what, that looks clean!

Nice. That sure cleans it up behind the grill, plus improving airflow through the radiator.

Its spotwelded from underneath, so the pieces that are secured to the grille support has a lip and the main plate is spotwelded against the lip. My friend used a machine to crimp the metal to get the right radius.

Why would you want to cover the factory 12 pack compartment designed to stash your beer when you are supposed to be working on the car?

 

Seriously though, looks great. Very nice job.
