    grills I was looking at moss motors & they have a zinc plated grill. I was wondering if it would fit my fiberfab. I know a little work will be needed,but even after the chrome shop the price would be considerably less than one from mgmagic. has anyone tried this?

    FiberFab used a reproduction TD grill. So the Moss item will fit.

    Mods are necessary and explained in the manual available over there on the left in the download manuals section.

    There is a link under FiberFab VW Based Migi II to the Grill installation.

    You’re looking at grill slats, I think, (PN 454-170) not the outer shell. That’s the hard-to-get item.

    Slats in original TDs were originally painted. Hence the zinc plating.

    I know looking at the diagram on the Moss page it looks like you’re buying the outer shell (I had to look at it carefully again), but there is a reason that PN 454-757 is “radiator shell” and it’s “unavailable.”

    Hence the prevalence of $700 and $800 used rad shells on the ebay, with many bidders.

    After my last accident I replaced my Fiberfab grille shell with one from an original TD. It had to be modified for the hood to close. The fenders had gaps around the grille shell.
