    I had to work on each end of the header piece and even take a slice out of the right fender but it is looking better.
    We have established that these reproduction parts need lots of work. Has anyone had to fix the lower RS valence? It does not line up with the header piece where the nose cone goes on.
    I will have to send my hood hinges out for repair as they are really bad.

    This is probably not anything you don't already know. I bought a GM RS lower valance from a guy because he said it wouldn't fit with his repop RS header panel. Then I bought a GM RS header panel from another guy because he said it wouldn't fit with his repop lower valance. I've heard the same from others that the RS repop sheet metal won't mix and match with GM. If that's the problem you're running into, you aren't the only one.

    You're doing great! It is days like this that you will gladly drop $1500 for GM pieces.
