    Hi all, I want to re-make these as a part for the Buick community. They will be really easy for me, and cost effective. It will also be a nice mounting for aftermarket CD players etc. I just need one to make the mold from. If you want to sell it, let me know, if you want to loan it, you will get several of the new pieces back when I return your core.

    Hi Mike, no, noone answered it. I could kick myself as I had a perfect one about a year ago, and sold it for $60. Was happy at the time, but that was before I got into this mold stuff. I wonder if there is a market for them if I was too produce them? I want a littel more practice at a two piece mold before I attempt the 71 GS grill again. Got it really close last time. But I lost the backing.... grrrrr..... How much do you want for it?

    Jon, I would be interested in a plate to mount a aftermarket radio. You could also get Greg Setter to do a wood grain to go on it. That would look nice.

    Thanks, Jeff

    If they're available I'll think twice about an expensive orig am/fm that will sound bad anyway. The alternatives are very attractive.

    As soon as I get my hands on a delete plate, I will have these made in about a week. Waiting on a possible location of a delete plate. The woodgrain sounds cool!

    gs4u2c Is that a 442?

    I'm sure you could sell quite a few, if for no other reason than for guys to cut for use with a modern cd deck. They should bring an easy $40-50, maybe more.

    I found one! Ok, someone was kind enough to loan me the part, so all I have to do is pick it up and mold it. It wont be long, as this will be a quick mold/pour.

    I will probably price them at $50.

    No problem on the woodgrain - in fact, i probably have "scrap" from the Riv kit runs that would work. Get me some dimensions and we'll figure out something.

    Did anybody make one yet

    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    Yes. There is a seller on eBay that offers them. They are unpainted so you will still need to do a little work. I do not know anyone that has purchased one so I don’t know about the quality of the reproduction. Also, ‘68-‘72 are all the same shape but the ‘68-‘69 are smooth whereas the ‘70-‘72 has the pebble texture (like the dash cluster under the wood grain area), and it’s not clear what style is used for this reproduction.
