Hey, in your travels thru the junk yards, have any of you ever come across one of these in halfway decent shape. I would really like one to mod onto my Caprice.

I had one of those for years. Threw it away a couple months ago. Surprised

I have nothing to add to this thread.

I did that mod while back with the one from my '85 Caprice.. It doesn't really go with the car. I got a bunch of dumb, "why do you have a boy scout thing on your hood?" questions. If you end up doing it, you'll have to mod the base of it for the 91-96 base to accept it. My .02...

I've been thinking of doing that. I like the look of the SS grille, I also like having a hood ornament, and two bowties on the front would look dumb. Unfortunately, the only box I've come across at the yards (a wagon, no less) was already flattened.

It'll look good as long as there is other chrome on the car. I'm short of that stuff. It will look awesome with an SS grill. Even better on a white B. Post up pics as soon as you do it. I'd give you mine, but the little plastic inserts are missing somehow scratch

I'd do the grille in metallic silver or spray chrome. Either that or an Olds grille with an LTZ badge in the center, but that might be too sacrilegious.

The fleur-de-lis or fleur-de-lys (plural: fleurs-de-lis) is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means flower, and lis means lily) or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be "at one and the same time, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic", especially in heraldry.

I actually knew all that. I needed to do research on it before I put it anywhere on my car. I now have a nice subtle fleur-de-lis on my shaved SS trunk lid. Pics to come soon! Symbolic indeed.

I'll put up pics on the build of it when I do my caddy thread. It took me 2 months to make the out of a raw piece of steel. I used all hand tools, no Cnc or machines, Mad
