I thought at the beginning they were exact.. Roll Eyes they deviate from the mounting now but I'm assuming they are the correct height... If not I have a hack saw

The valance is original... the question is: Did the car have front bumper guards? I doubt it had rears and the TT is not coded for them

Backside..
My experience tells me these holes are factory punched not drilled.. the age of it all tells me in 1977 when the car was painted and fender flared they painted right over these dents.. obviously the car was bumped in the front...BEFORE the repaint

Those lower grill rivets are not correct. I guess the grill was out for some reason..maybe to paint cuz the valance and header and flat grill are all original ( white..blue stripe remnants etc)

I wish we had some numbers on how many cars are documented that came with just front Bumper Guards!

The car has been testing me to the breaking point with the fluids.. Its such an incredible story of bad luck and bad karma that I'm back burnering the driveline issues til the nose is on.. Taking the car to repaint the doors.. I just couldn't live with them so I took them back apart and am going to reshoot the outsides (long story..yes I have issues Roll Eyes )

The car runs awesome and is in fact looking good. Making the garage a body shop again for the nose.. should be hitting it hard the next three weeks... a welcomed change from mechanical at this point
