    Looking for some help identifying this grill filler. The lower mounting brackets on the grill don't match up with mounting holes on the grill filler panel. This project was a basket case and I don't know anyone with a 69 SBee to check it out and see if it's the wrong grill filler. If it is the wrong piece, I'm also looking to find the right one. The mounting tabs on the grill are 28 1/2" apart and the filler panel has four holes and the widest are 33 1/2". tks grill 2.jpg grill.jpg

    That's a '68 lower grill support.

    '69 >>

        Sorry to ruin your day! I have a spare '68 here.. but no '69 to bail you out.

        Do you have the filler strip for your hood lip?? If not 3white74 has one for sale right now in the classifieds. Don't miss it if you need it as they're not easy to find! Steve may also have the grill support you need.. @3white74

          I've got a lift off I'm planning to use, I'm guessing they don't use the filler on the hood lip. I'll check on that grill filler panel, I feel like I'll never get the front clip aligned.

          Trying to show you the split metal towards the end in the first pick.

          Do you have the end pieces of the grill(bezels) I have those as well.

          Hey Tks Texas, I'm going to poke around locally first, but will hang on to your post. I do have two sets of bezels tho. Appreciate it.
