Well, I did some research on this topic, and the previous threads that were posted by MagnumCharger, but could not find my answer.  I will be needing grille spacers and have no idea where to get them.  I have searched, but have come up with nothing.  Does anyone have a direct link to the spacers that I can buy?

I won this set on EBay a couple of weeks ago (at the request of the guy restoring my grill), is this what you're looking for??

Are those bolts actually long enough? I got a kit on ebay a while ago for like $45 + shipping and none of the bolts could be used so I got some aftermarket ones. They were not long enough to go from top grille, through spacer and into clip.

 brickwall Folks.  I have followed all of the excellent links to restoration of a 1970 dodge charger grill.  My grill is in very rough shape, any handing compounds the damage.  I have checked out the problems with Premier Plastic Restorations (will not go there),  have checked with Goodmark, BEA, and can not reach Cudagrill.com by email or by phone.  No luck.  Sorry to bring this problem up again, but does anyone know of someone that is in business and really produces a reproduction grill for 1970 dodge charger?

The grill on my 69 is in good shape but I still wanted new top and bottom hardware as many of the old fasteners broke during removal. I bought a new set of hardware from Tom @ R/T Specialties. Give him a call, he carries lots 'o stuff. Good luck.

I did contact R/T specialties, and checked the site.  No 70 charger grills.  Still no luck.  Anyone know if cuda-grill.com is still in business?  anyone know of anyone that carries the 70 charger repro grill?

Hello and merry Xmas to you all.

I am just working on the grill frame for my 68 and wondering if the clips which clip into the grill frame which the headlamp bezel screws turn into are available? I have a few which are broken. Here is a pic of what  I am talking about. Thanks to Charger4404spd for the liberated picture.

Cheers,

James

Thanks to all of the things I learned off of this thread, I decided to tackle my grill also.
Thought i'd post these in case anyone wants to know what colors I used.  They were
SEM Trim Black, like I read about on here, and SEM Titanium Metallic.  I don't know
if anyone's tried it, but I matched it to a place on one of the fins that wasn't as worn.
Looking at it in person, it was a perfect match for mine.  Hope you enjoy.

There is a dark titanium metallic and a light titanium metallic.  Which one did you use?

I'm not positive, but I'd say it was the darker one.
It doesn't say on the can, but the number is 15253, if that helps.
Thanks for the compliments!

Yes. And the driver's side headlight door (and the trim of course).

There are some reasonably priced complete 69 Charger grills in the Classifieds right now (eBay section). You'll probably have a fair chunk of cash sunk into finding good original parts that will still need restored (for example I've seen centers go for $400 and sides with good corners over $200). Grills are not currently being reproduced so, unfortunately, you're at the mercy of whoever has the pieces.
