Post by DustinLangston » Fri Oct 14, 2016 9:46 pm

I almost have a complete grill collection. Just need a muscle grill.

You have a muscle grill right above those helmets at the right end of you're work bench. I don't see a rhino grill though, and also there are two versions of the razor grill (I'm not sure which one you have hanging that picture) Nice collection! Everytime I seem to start collecting them (quite by accident) it's just s matter of time before someone makes an offer on one that I just can't say no to! :-bd

Edit>>> I may be mistaken on the razors. I swear I've seen a version where the teeth are peaked rather than embossed with a channel, but I'll be darned if I can find a picture of one now.

I believe the early badged razor grilles had that rib contour RED.

Nice wall art!

Early razors had different embossing on the lower area too.

Interesting. I had no idea the razors changed. But it would make sense. They used that grill for a long time.

Wow, I had no idea. Well this sucks. I need more room for all the different Razors. :)

Nice shop and grille collection. I think there are two versions of the razor though. One and two have or had the black accent that one version has worn off of. My opinion only.

There are also two styles of pignose, two muscle grills, two final edition grills. You've got a ways left to go.

Hahahaha Nikkormat. Not good. I'm running out of wall space. The two muscle grills and two pignose grills are just the different colors right? Black vs gray? I might have to just stick to styles and not go too crazy.
What are the two different final editions?

You could switch to XJ grilles. They'd take up less space and you could donate the FSJ grilles to me!! 8-)

If you just want one version of each, you just need a Rhino. Nice collection!

Just wanna point out.. not being ass here.. But I am in the fire dept and your florescent lighting right up against the insulation paper is a no no.. Ballasts can get very hot... Not worth the risk.. In fact builders codes in my area recommend you keep lighting 3 inches away from any insulation. Just saying.. before you burn your garage down.

I would add some brackets on the roof joists there to lower the lighting away from the insulation a little bit. Some lights can get so hot in the back they burn your hands. I mean youre probably fine but i wouldnt chance it

Nice!!! Some day mine will be complete as well. Doubtful tho... As to the razor grill, the ones with the black strip were for the wagons and the ones without the painted slats were put on the J trucks. Might be wrong but that was how it was told to me. Makes sene tho. Nice collection! Think i have two Rino's, ill have to see.

Update, I finally have a Rhino grille and one of each of the razor grilles. They are all packed away in the back of a Cherokee right now while I build my shop. :) They'll be up again soon.
