\r\n 1967 Grille versus 1968 Grille\r\n

\r\n I was just curious if a 67 grille will fit a 68? WCCC states there are some differences between the years, but really doesn\'t go into it...
\n
\nI have been trying to make two grilles fit as one and as I dove into it found some significant cracks...so I am scouring to see if I can get a functioning set, but would hate to end up buying a 67 set if they are that different (or won\'t work at all) on a 68.
\n
\nPutting grill in here for people searching no the alternate spelling...
\n

\nThanks for the help!

    \r\n They\'ll interchange. The only difference is some reinforcment on the pot metal pieces...hard to explain but easy to point out if you have the two next to each other.\r\n

    \r\n I believe the eyelids are also year specific, using a different pivot point. Using a complete grill side will work fine like JB said.\r\n

    \r\n I had a 68 cover that would not fasten to my 67. Bolt pattern for screwing to the pivot was diff in that the center top screw was offset to one side and not centered like the 67\r\n
