Inching closer to the "worlds best grill"

Mike, I am still trying to figure out the process used on aluminum trim parts like grille moldings. I am not sure if they are flash chromed or anodized. I had some interior headliner trim moldings along the window in a hardtop anodized and they turned out great. I have not found a source for flash chrome. I may do them both ways and see which turns out the best. I have multiple 67 grilles for parts so I can do some playing.

The rivet situation is under control. I still need some input on the squeeze tool though.

Keith C.

Any luck getting you Grill back together?

I’m getting ready to take mine apart for paint, and just ordered the rivets from AMK, AMK part number B-13399

I am looking for the rivets used to assemble the RS grille center to the upper and lower moldings. It looks like the same part is used to assemble the headlight doors and trim. AMK sells them in black anodize for 8 pieces for $3. The original parts were raw aluminum, not anodized. The AMK parts also look to have an oval head instead of flat like the originals.

The first question I have is if anyone has used the AMK rivets, are my above observations correct?

The second question I have is whether there is any interest in buying rivets that correct the deficiencies noted above? I have a quote to get the rivets but it requires a minimum purchase of 10,000 pieces. I don't need that many. I am looking at selling them at a price of 25 pieces for $10 for natural aluminum, flat head rivets custom made to match the original parts.

If it looks like there is interest, I may take the chance and order them. Obviously the market is larger than just this forum, but this group has the type detail oriented restorers who can help understand if there is interest.

Thanks,
Keith C

I think when time allows we should check if the original units you are working with are
#1 truely original
#2 not an early or late version
#3 not LA vs. NOR

I can find a few versions but much of my stuff these days ir packed up so I'd need time.. Maybe you can post a pic of what you talking of?
