    Anyone have a really nice driver quality front chrome GS hood trim piece they don't need? I see the parts place has a repo for $299.... i have a Skylark piece but a few studs are missing and I believe is thinner than the GS piece... is the Parts Place one any good? Thanks

    From what I remember,those 2 are almost the same,the GS is about 1/2 inch wider on the bottom.With the hood closed,no one will know its a Skylark molding.I may have a extra one,just got a 70 GS ,with the GS hood,I just did not make sure its a BBB or a SBB molding.From the top it looks really good.Bruno.

    I suspect that there is one manufacturing source but multiple retail sellers. I bought a repro 70 nose molding several years back and I was impressed with its quality. It is hard to find adequate cores to re-plate originals because the trailing edge is thin and hard to rehabilitate.
