    I am putting my 70 back together and my old headlight surrounds are dinged up pretty bad, and my grill, although not cracked or broken, has flaking and chipping along the plastic 'chrome surround'.
    I am looking to purchase some aftermarket pieces, but have been dismayed at the fit of many other components out there, quarters, dash, etc.
    Does anyone recommend a company that makes good headlight bucket trim, grilles, and such? I know there rare many aftermarket companies, are they all the same, or does one stand out.

    Thank you so much,

    Eric

    I've never had an after market part fit like an OEM part. There is always some tweeking or compromising to be done.

    I bought a new OER standard grill for my 73 Z from JEGS. $140 and free shipping.

    Haven't installed it yet, car is in paint. But it is an OER grill.
