    I have reproducted the 79-84 radiator screens and have not done the pre 78 due to there challenges. I am close to having them done in bulk, but I need to know the differances through the years.

    Sor says
    1958-9/73

    9/73-8/76

    8-76-12/78

    Is it size where I can make them std and fit all years?

    Bolt hole locations?

    thanks!

    Shane

    The earlier style, to 08/73, is one piece unit that is larger than the later, 09/73 style. The earlier style has an area where it dips in and bends rearward a bit near the top where it is close to the hood and bib seam.

    The later style does not cover all the openings in the bib, as there is a top section that is independent of the main screen, and is usually missing from being bent up and rusted.


    I will try and post pics for you this weekend Shane....
