    Sorry to be late, but here's another way for future builders. First, the MCG headlight screens are made to fit the 1/24th scale Monogram kit. I found that out while trying to make them fit the AMT kit, they are just too big for it IMO.
    If you are trying to apply them to the Monogram kit, try to use the method MCG recommends for forming the compound bend in their Track Nose kit. It works like a charm. You form a tool out of brass rod and put it in a pin vise. Then work the tool over the PE part on a piece of dense rubber (like a mouse pad). Here are the illustrations associated with it. Contact MCG and Bob would probably send you the complete instructions. Works like a charm when I did the track grille and the smaller version headlight screens I custom made for my 1/25 scale Vette.

    LOL ... always have enjoyed your thorough reviews. Hard to believe that model is more than 20 years old today.
    I plan to start artwork for an MCG detail set for that Charger as soon as I get my hands on one...

    Could you measure the T-Tops in this kit? Width & Length. 
    TIA
