After the 2110 got the rattle can rebuild it deserved a decent grill. I had the grill that was on the tractor and a spare. Both grills had been abused and were broken at the edges. The black grill was so bent up, twisted and broken that I almost threw it away, but having the welder out I thought I give welding it up a shot, at the very least I figured that I'd set the welder up to fix the red grill (which came with the tractor) that I thought might be in better shape.

That's as far as I went with this one tonight, I'm thinking with all of the rust on this one that I might blast this one before painting it.

Bailey, I used a shot filled soft mallet and my anvil to do most of the straightening. Kinda alternated between that and regular ball peen along with a couple pair of pliers when needed. I did all of the straightening before welding. I used my 4" grinder with a medium disc for both welding prep and finish. And to think that I almost threw that one out!|)
