Re: My 68 Grill Restoration

Very nice!! Hoping to do that to mine soon. I have my grilles temporarily installed on a parts car with the straightening kit on. Has been there for a couple months, hopefully it'll stay straight.

Re: Wanted - 1968 Standard Door Panels

What is the contact no for SMS? thanks! https://smsautofabrics.com/pages/contact They have a mixed history when it comes to customer service and timeline, so I'm hoping I'll be able to say some positive things at the end of this. It's not uncommon for their turnaround time to be 6 months or more. I...

Re: Wanted - 1968 Standard Door Panels

Thanks for the offers guys. I decided to bite the bullet and have SMS make me a new set of panels. It's going to be interesting... will post my results here or in my project thread.

Re: 1968 6.5 Litre xr7 $5000

Major project, but actually doesn't look that bad to me. Much gnarlier cars have been saved. I'm wondering how bad the front left collision was that warranted the fender replacement.

Re: Trunk drop offs

What year car? If 67-68, the recent Dynacorn repops seem pretty nice. They used to just make the complete trunk pan, but we got them to do separate pieces.

Re: Window Sticker Shock , what did your Cat(s) cost when new ?

Wow! I just did the "dream Cougar" window sticker generator for my car, and it looks like it would have been about $3,945 when new. It's just a base '68 with a short list of common options. window sticker simulated.jpg Question on the "deluxe wheel covers" - I'm assuming that's just the normal hubca...
