Thanks to K J, I managed to fix that hood he had on here for $125. Here it is on the car:

x2 didnt realize that was you either. Car looks damn good. I have a question though. I was reading the discussion about the "GPO Style" grilles. how much would you charge for a set of those cause I don't think that 100 bucks is worth it for the shitty ones that don't even fit right. Yours seem to fit way better and look better too.

The hood has a crack in it right in front. There wasn't a hood latch on it when I got it from K J, and the one I made was a little short. when we put it in, and closed the hood, it cracked. The hood is going back to get fixed right.

Thank's K J. Seriously. There were little bubbles in the Gel-coat, one corner was cracked, but still attached, where the other side was gone (1/2 the size of a credit card). Not to mention enough pine needles in the dang thing to cover a tree.

Still, it all got straightened out and fresh paint.

As far as the GPO Grilles, there is a guy names Matt in South Dakota who made the ones that the W-Body Store sells. NOTHING against the W-Body store at all...I've been 100% happy with all of the stuff I've gotten from them throughout the years...but the guy named MATT in South Dakota is a total @#$%! He basically threw away his plastic injection mold for the GPO Grilles.

Around the time he conceptualized those things, I started making a set for me out of fiberglass. I went to Ed Morad and got just the nose of a GT front bumper and used that for a mold for my Grilles. A few weeks later, I finished & installed them. He started selling his online with WBS. I don't know how long it was, but he sold some and his idea went CA-PUT!

I then posted pictures of what I did and told people how to make their own, instead of waiting...LITERALLY...6+ months for his. Matt then threatened me with a lawsuit, saying I was taking away his business, that mine were a rip off of his, etc. He even said he was going to send a letter to the guy who runs DEE-Dee-DEE CLAPgp , to get me ousted from the forum.

To me, if you are going to take the time to make an incection mold, throw it away after a few runs and then get pissed when someone else comes along and show people how to make their own, then YOU'RE the IDIOT. I mean, how big can this friggin' mold possible be? I have $#!T in my closet-right next to my shoes-that's probably bigger. I'm pretty sure mine is bigger

Anyway, that was a while ago and the GPO Grilles are still available through the W-Body store. I started making a set for someone on here roughly 18 months ago and never heard back from him. Those are close to being finished and sitting in my tool chest. I was going to finish them and use a different mesh of grille behind them

I have to say though...these were a real PITA to get in...BUT...they are SOLID Fiberglass. The other ones I tried making used some foam as a filler to make it go faster.
