I remember awhile back someone posted some pics of the differnces in the grille opening of the 67-68 pickups I tried searching but couldnt find anything. I have the 67 grille and was wanting to see if I could get some pics of how to modify one of my 72 kits to make the grille look right thanks

Try mounting the 67 Grill in the Custom grill. Does not matter if it is the older

version with No lights, or later one with 2 center mounted lights

It closely resembles the body work of the smaller opening, and should fill in the

area to fit the smaller 67/68 grill into the 69-72 grill opening.

 

I had thought of trying that too untill I got the resin conversion.

 

here are my 2.

Original;

and resin conversion;

Fit is not 100%, but will do the job quickly. and is easier than trying to scratch-fill that area!!

 

 Strip the chrome If you want before cutting;

Cut out the center of the custom grill, then Carefully file/sand/shape to fit the 67/68 grill.

You will paint this piece anyway!!, it is sheet metal not chrome!!

 

Weather depending, I can take a pic or 2 tomorrow showing what part I am talking about using
