66 Grille
« on: November 26, 2017, 09:01:19 PM »
I just sent my Grille horse and corral out for re plating. I have a rivet to replace on my grille.Before I straighten out the grille I have a few questions. First question relates to identifying an original grille. I repainted this grille last year and was under the assumption it was the original grille however I'm not positive. Are there any features or part numbers stamped anywhere on originals that would help identify an original ? Also when I repainted it I replicated the paint process that it had at the time. Were the cross bars black behind the corral? I have seen NOS grilles that do not have that area "Blacked out" and originals that appear to be painted black behind the corral.

Does anyone know if there is a faithful reproduction of the corral attaching nuts. Ive seen a few different styles and haven't been able to determine which is correct.
