    Yeah, I've also heard that the 67-68 may fit.

    Someone has to know for sure.

    Personally I like the flat black look. It's different and sweet looking, plus if your going to put the effort and money into clear coating it why not just put that money towards making the grill flat black also along with the berger panel.

    I'd keep checking ebay for the emblem. It just bolts on with a backing to hold it in place.

    Then I was told that the 69 Chevelle bowtie would. And, it does

    I'm not sure which other SS emblem would fit. Maybe someone else knows

    If you do that grille above, do you have any plans for your current grille?

    I also found these and they may fix the angle problem

    If it were me... I'd keep it. You just never know what you may want to do down the road.

    But, then again... I keep too much stuff

    I think the best look for the maros is when you take off the stock grill fill the holes like this....

    Looks good, you need some kind of fill in letters for the berger panel though. Stainless, chrome or something.
