For truly OE doubling wont do it. I've been at this a long time and in the past few years just finding NOS/assembly line parts is virtually impossible. Especially exterior trim, grilles ect. When found the prices often scare the heck out of most but the very well funded.

Sweet Road Runner, Jim. The body and paint look awesome. First time that I've seen it in the green and white color scheme.

Agreed,
Finding the parts now would be a job in itself.

I talked to a cust a several years back needing an NOS red boot coil wire,,, his budget was $500 and still couldnt find one. I've lost touch with him so I dont know if he ever found one or not

Without hesitation, I’d only choose mike Mancini!!! He’s currently restoring my car and I couldn’t be happier with the quality, accuracy and professionalism of his shop!
