    Don't shoot the messenger but these eyebrows are giving me some fits and are still being tweaked. If I get them right, they will be worth the wait. I am not giving up. Sorry for the delay and thanks for your patience. Tom

    Eyebrows Ready to Order!

    Lots of setbacks but finally, successfully completed the windshield eybrows/escutcheons nice enough to pass my QC standards. They are made using a 2-part urethane thermoplastic and look and feel like the originals. They are exact copies of an NOS GM set. The part number on the underside will come X-ed out to prevent resale as gm originals. They will also have a KY mark.

    Making these has been a very labor intensive process with each one being hand poured requiring a number of rejects to get one good set. Unfortunately, at this time, I can't offer them at a price any where near what you can get the later 1971 and up design for. I am asking $225/ set plus $12 shipping to States. Hopefully, I can get the price down with improved production results. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery but hopefully I can get them out sooner. I can work with you on multiple-set discount.

    PayPal friends appreciated!

    Thanks for your patience and understanding. I think you will be very pleased with the part.

    Best,
