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.

How hard would it be to match and repaint the argent on the headlight bezels? Easier than repainting the new grille?

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.
