It seems like nice used grill center and medallions for my 67 Coronet 440 do not exist. Every one on feebay is horrible to lousy. So I am thinking about making some custom ones using clear epoxy (for example, one idea is to embed a small chrome skull in front of a crushed red glass background). Anyone here ever attempt this? Anyone have some beat up ones to sell me cheap so I can experiment?

Or better yet, anyone have a NOS one :lol:?

Thanks Mucho

Original. Red was repainted from the back. I switched it to the RT center section so I don't need it. If you need it pm me.

The red isn't the correct opaque paint but looks really good. There are light cracks in the medallion plastic. The chrome is in excellent condition with very little flaws. It was the nicest one I could find. I was saving it for a possible Dick Landy clone down the road but if you need it more I wouldn't feel right sitting on it.

If you want it it's yours for the cost of shipping. I'm in Los Gatos California so shipping's a snap. Pay it forward to someone else on here.

No biggie. Now he doesn't have to compromise on his grill. It will look better on his car than my shelf anyways and will throw out some good Mopar karma for someone else down the road.

It's bubble wrapped, boxed and ready to go out tomorrow. Pm me a list of any other parts you are looking for and I'll pm you if they come across my path. It always helps to have another set of eyes looking. These years sadly lack reproduction support and the simplest parts can drive you nuts looking for years.

Mr. H, I don’t know how else I could say in other ways thank you thank you thank you. I’ve been working on this front end for the last three weeks or so, and your grill center is the central little detail that really makes it pop. Thumbs up to you and to FBBO!

Thanks! No problem. Wow! She's definitely a beauty! Just glad I could help. FBBO is definitely the best car forum. There are a lot of great folks on here. If it wasn't for members on here I wouldn't be half as far as I am on my project. Whenever I turn someone on to the site I always tell them that it's not the typical blowhard show off car site with a bunch of idiots with credit card built cars that they didn't even build or maintenance. It's more of a community of real car lovers. It feels like an extension of family. Thanks to all who make this site such an amazing place! ... and whoever anonymously gifted me a gold membership I really appreciate it!!
