Who sells the best Reproduction 1969 Roadrunner grille at this point and is it the Goodmark brand or is there a better brand etc?

My headlight bezels that I would like the grille to match seem to be the darker argent color.

I got mine from Roseville. Nice part overall. Not sure of origins.

I bought mine from Roseville at the Detroit Swap a few years ago. It was their last one and I got a great deal. It fit really nice and I am very happy with it. Right after that, they went on backorder and weren't available for some time. I have heard they aren't quite finished off the same.

I kept my original but my car really isn't a showcar so this reproduction part was a good fit for me.

Start planning on taking part of the 50th Anniversary of the Lift Off Hood cars!

How hard would it be to match and repaint the argent on the headlight bezels? Easier than repainting the new grille?
inherited a 69 roadrunner from my grand pop.

Information I have is that there is only one source for reproduction grills at this time. Herbs has the Dark Argent in spray cans and I bought a couple cans. I did a little test spray yesterday and it is pretty close color wise. It has a lot of texture when it dries and a lot of the aluminum flake in it. The only visible fault I could find may be the flake size compared to an NOS part which is a bit larger. I think this is a good option and the price ($19) was right. I'm just going to mask off the repop grill and bezels and re-shoot them.
