Default Grille and Front End Trim

I also got the Grille back this week from the platter. Alot of taping. This was an original grill so not in perfect condition. I had to fill in some pits in the face area before painting with SEMs trim black. With the redone emblem it came out really nice.

Default Grille Emblem

Grille emblem installed. Glad I had my original or I would have not known there are small black plastic spacers behind the emblem to space it off the grill. Im not sure the repros have these.

Default Front End

I put on most of the front end trim this weekend. All the pieces are originals redone. The only piece that is reproduction and phenomenal quality is the lower valence center piece.

Default Rear Rocker Trim

Put on the rocker trim this weekend. Have several originals to see how the factory very thinly painted the lines. Lots of masking and like 3 mins of painting. I have another 66 SS waiting on restoration that had the original pieces un touched with the factory screws shown below. There chromed #8s with a very low profile. Very similar to a wheel well molding screw, but a slightly smaller head diameter. In fact AMK has a screw pretty close to this that I used.

Default Side Rocker Mouldings

I used NOS pieces for the side mouldings. As a piece of advice to avoid issues its best to fill all the holes the factory puts in and place your own. Couple of shots below of the drivers side. I rolled the car out of the garage today to clean things up. Car is finally starting to look really good. Just a piece of unique information comparing 66 to 67. I had original shots of the screws and clips, the screws are #8s of my car. I got confused because over the years I have robbed plenty of the these clips and thought the screws were #10s. Come to find out in the AIM 66 did use a #8 and 67 and I assume later used #10s.
