      Maintenance Complete   07/19/2018

       The maintenance went very smoothly. With the recent database problems, a table got very very big, and needed some surgery. You should experience any changes.

Thanks for bringing this up. I started a 1968 GTX conversion years ago. But every attempt at the grill ended up as trash fodder.

I want to revisit this one someday and this post / link has renewed my interest to get back to it someday soon.

Doesn't Keith Mark's decals  offer a 1968 GTX conversion with a grill though a decal for the AMT kits?

No, the Keith Marks decals is for the Road Runner, and does not have any 3-D effect.

@ Curt: Thanks for your words.

@gtx6970: Sorry, you´re right it´s a roadrunner...

Sometimes google plays with me. Will try to get the right one done anyway.

Thanks for this comment because it helps me a lot.

Not sure if its just in the picture. or not. But it looks like the head light area should be deeper  / recessed farther

looks to flush with the outer  grille mldg compared to a 1/1

@gtx6970: THX for the feedback Bill, you´re right again. Reworked it today.

@PlymouthFan: THX to you too. Don´t sure about the pricing yet because maybe I have to change something after the testprint again.

Here new pics of the reworked one:

Hi Bryon, sorry no updates yet but I want to order the grill next weekend.

Because I have some other parts that have to be printed it will probably take two weeks for this process. Print will be done at shapeways.

If I have the parts here I will show them just in time.

 

THX

Rico, count me in for both grills when you are ready to sell. Are you thinking about doing a 69 GTX grill?
