Default 68/69 Turn Signal Grille - Damaged

I am looking to incorporate the 68/69 style of front turn signal into my 72 road race replica build and I could use a template from an original grille. Not looking to put the grille in the car, looking to use the grille as a template to know how best to modify my 66 grille on the car now. If you have a broken or damaged grille or pair of grilles you would be willing to sell please send me pictures and prices to my home e-mail address at [email protected]. I am wrapping up the exterior of the car now and could really use your help locating a pair for templates please.
Thank you for your help and best regards,
David Howard



I borrowed this image from Roger's post and it is exactly the kind of damaged part I am looking to buy. Have one? Better still, have a pair?

Hi David.
Sorry for the delay but I found a pretty much near perfect right side grille you are welcome to. PM the mailing address if you still need it.

Stay safe, John

Also, this is the late 68 / 69 design. Not the early to mid 68. If you need that one let me know.

Yesterday I was able to size the new lights to the brackets and I had received a broken bracket back brace from Roger (RVIZIO) and that is what I will need to use to support the lights so I ordered two new backing brackets that I can modify for the installation. When dealing with custom you have to be creative for sure. The front light fixtures supplied to me by Rescue Rogers, RVIZIO, and GOVETTEGO have all bee used to size the opening and determine how best to approach the installation. I have a spare pair of front grilles I used for my initial design of the nose of the racer and those will be used to cut and size my lights before cutting into the racer nose grille. Once the brackets arrive I will dig in deeper but that is all I have for now.
