It has no face! Lol.

Maybe screw the stock bezels onto there? Or headlight stickers? Or big googly eyes? Lol
I have that problem with my blazer. I took the old wobbly core support off, and made my own, but when I was done, I realized it didnt have a face anymore. So I zip tied the old 75 blazer grill on, so it wouldnt look goofy, but one day I was driving around, and the damn thing fell off, and got destroyed. Now its goofy and faceless again, and I destroyed a perfectly good grill. Grrr.

Sure it will end up with plenty of black eyes!
Was going to run the original front end, until it got tore up. Decided to just chunk it, for weight loss and the old original would collect alot of mud.

Won't that restrict air flow to the radiator, or are you putting it in the back?

You could also always plasma cut a grill and headlight shape in that sheet.

Will be alot of rad under it, and the rad will be 8ish inches behind it...I think. will hole saw air holes if/as needed. Plan to paint a GMC emblem on it, if time allows.
