The rad support is composed of 4 parts- the upper and lower tie bars and the side panels. Which ones does he need? As for being fussy, he'd be well advised to Google 70 Challenger rad support and he'll see there's a few suppliers of new parts. AMD sells a complete one for $380 and Classic Industries sells in pieces or complete from $119 to $300. Hope that helps and if he's a real #'s guy, tell him to look out for the body stamping number in the upper tie bar. The zealots cut out the old one and weld it into the new one.  :cheers:

Good call, tell him to save the VIN stamped on the upper radiator support (the one the runs across the front of the car right in front of the radiator).
