Grill detailing part 2 revised grill color

OK, got the correct color in the other day and stripped everything down and repainted the grill, moldings and pedestals. You will notice the rubber washer under the fog lights.

The correct color is Ditzler (PPG) 32930 or Dupont 9426.

It was also used on '71 Fords.

'67 Styled steel wheel paint is a good alternative and, in fact, may be the same color, but that has not been confirmed.

Hello, I was searching through the forums for details on grille hardware and came across these photos of your pristine car. Somewhere along the line someone helped themselves to the two grille bolts on top near the hood latch support from my car. I have been trying to find out what the correct bolts may be and was wondering if you could help me. They also took two of the four hood latch support bolts as well. I seem to have different castings on the heads of various bolts(F with the lines around it, anchor etc.) and was curious which may be correct.
Thanks,

Andrew

Question Lucas replacement bulbs?

Don't mean to hijack your thread, but does anyone have the correct replacement bulb number for the GT/CS Lucas fogs? We're finally re-installing our set too, and would like to fit them with some brand new bulbs. The ones that are in there right now are two different, mis-matched bulbs ...
Thanks,
Al

Most auto parts stores carry these.

Thumbs up Thanks Arlie!

OK, thanks Arlie! We'll pick up a new pair of those to install in our Lucas fogs and keep the two old ones for spare parts ...
