My Garage
Narrow Grill Molding

Location: Franklin, NC

I'm in a quandary trying to get a decent pair of the narrow grill moldings. I ordered & received a set from CJ Pony. They were misshaped and didn't fit. The mfr's name was unfamiliar, so I researched Scott Drake for the same parts as Drake has a decent reputation for quality. I ordered their product from Summit, and they came with the same mfr name as the previous pair and they were even worse. I called Scott Drake's customer service and they told me there is only one repro supplier for this part. And that they've sold 'thousands' of these with no complaints.
C7ZZ-8242-AR, C7ZZ-8243-AR Scott Drake P/N's.
Hmmm. Two for two faulty pairs, from different retailers makes this hard to believe. Here's a photo of the right trim piece. It obviously doesn't match the contour of the body. If I try to bend it to fit it will kink in the bend radius.
The old pieces are very dull & dented.
Any ideas or suggestions?
