I often had this thought about lower grill moldings. Since this trim is notably hard to find and expensive when you do...plus they're usually banged up and require straightening, de-dinging and polishing. This is obviously expensive and/or very time consuming. What if you found a stick on vinyl molding with approximately the same shape/dimensions and used that? Being down low in the front who would ever know...but you?

Alternative thought...how about using a 57 grill, dismantle it and modify/polish to fit the lower grill?

Thanks for the ideas Bob, but I have done so much effort with the correct dual quad air cleaners, bumper wings ect, I figure why stop now. Christine truly has obsessed me!

Thanks, I tried to contact Wayne. But no response. I have found the rarest of 58 parts but these have been ghosts. Probably the rarest part. Thanks for the leads!

I was considering using some stainless steel strips that I saw at a local hardware store and using 3M double sided tape.
