70 Cuda Grill - OEM vs New Repop
« on: August 03, 2017 - 12:12:08 am »
I been looking around for a grill and I am not opposed to restoring one since I have the correct argent Totally Auto paint in hand-but-I am seeing repop grills that look nice and the prices are right and they are complete with all trim and bezels as low as $445 shipped-but-are the repops any good? 

Any thoughts or advice helps so please comment-  Thanks

Newer grills are stronger...

The originals will be stressed from years of sun exposure and prone to new cracks. Hard to beat the price of the new ones also.  :2cents:

I bought a re-pop. I think it is pretty good. The selling point was that it was complete. Came with all stainless, red bars, and plymouth emblem. I sold my 72 grille and had plenty $ left over to order hardware and paint.
