Grill color suggestion

Body is back on the roller and starting to assemble.

The body and grill are Wimbledon. Since it is going to have bright trim around the headlights and grill, red FORD letters, I was thinking Argent for the grill. One friend says leave it white and another says black.

White soft top, Parchment seats, black carpet and roll bar. hubcaps and black spare tire cover.

Thoughts?

Coming soon: 76 - 302, 4R70W, NP205, 2.5SL, 1"BL, 31x10.5 LUBR

I like your first suggestion - Argent. I think Argent looks best with the bright trim.

Argent with trim and it will look like a Ranger.

Black grill and front of core support and it will look like a Special Decor with an added Stripe kit.

I'd do either.
