(click the image to go back)

Anyone running moonshine needs a lot of torque and horsepower to stay ahead of the Feds. This large Cadillac mill provides plenty of both. Along with Tommy's weathering skills, you also see in this photo a very nifty trick he used to acheive the proper compound shape for the photoetched grille. He sanded smooth the original plastic grille piece, painted it flat black, and used it as a base for the metal part.
