John,

All you have to do is cut the fender marker opening for the 70 marker light and the 69 fender will be the same as a 70 fender.

John,

There's a guy close to you named Bobby that claims to have several 70 front pieces for sale; cash & carry. I saw his ad on the boardhost site and his email address is something on the lines of: [email protected] . Here's a link to his ad posting: http://members3.boardhost.com/67-73COUGARS/msg/1293750868.html

John, please enlighten me to the difference between a XR7 and standard door. I have a super nice left hand door not sure if its standard or XR7, its not NOS, but as close as you can get to it. I will take photos tomorrow if it is the correct type you are interested in.

Forgot to add two more items to list. I need a reproduction or NOS gas fuel door lens, or a very nice uncracked one the red lens part only ..Will trade if needed too. Also,while doing this we need a New or rebuilt brake booster for this disc brake cars. I will trade if needed too. I have alot of the cores and have tried trading with one other vendor,but no answer, so hope someone out there might be able to let me know if they have one available. Thanks for any leads.John

John, the 1970 XR7 grille doors were all chromed, and then painted black for Xr7 application. The only one not chrome plated was the Eliminator one. I do have a nice 1970 door, (no pitting) which I can paint like an XR7, or ship it to you and you can paint it.

I think we have decided, to make the 3 original NOS standard ones I have, look like the xr7 single NOS one, so basically it will have a grill set up like xr7 now, but will all be NOS as possible with no used ones with pits,and it should be pretty easy to convert the 3 others P1050766.jpg to xr7 style cant wait to see this car done. Of course IM going to be watching it leave my home when its done!! Very rare and will look great. Im still on hunt for seat belt restoration place that will return emails or calls! plus we still are looking for white standard interior door panels in great shape(nothing stained or broken cardboard) we might have to get these custom made.
