"RATIKI"  1965 Chevy Suburban

Nice Teeth

Maybe it's just me, but I never considered the stock C10 grill all that interesting. I needed to compliment  the tiki art that "CRASH"  had done throughout the interior with a tiki grill. So I went to the local Home Depot and bought various size dowels, which I cut down, then "carved" in a variety of different shapes. I showed "CRASH" the unpainted heads and asked her to paint 'em. Next call I got, she had encouraging news. "These tiki grill guys are way cool. I keep laughing out loud while I'm painting them.

Measuring the distance between the driver side and passenger side headlights of the Suburban, I cut down a "skewer". Next time I saw "CRASH", I gave her the skewer. She brought back a tiki-kabob of painted heads the next time I saw her. I cut out the mesh section of the stock grill and replaced it with the skewer. Viola'. He...he...heee. Very tiki.
