Re: Wanted - left headlight surround 1967 Coupe 2000

I would be happy to take that off your hands. Let me know how much you want for it and shipping.
I just had my center grill powder coated a bright silver. It was too pitted to justify actually chroming.
Thanks, Ben.

I will certainly take you up on that offer as long as one of them is the outside on the left side.
Thanks, Ben.

Re: Wanted - left headlight surround 1967 Coupe 2000

I'm curious as to how the chrome bezels are attached to the grill. It looks as though the factory grill pot metal had studs that were inserted through the mounting holes on the bezels, then the studs were crushed [hydraulically?] to form a rivet. It is a very substantial connection. I wondered if th...

Wanted - left headlight surround 1967 Coupe 2000

Does anyone have a decent headlight surround for a 2000 coupe they are interested in selling? Also, has anyone ever tried separating the headlight bezels from the small piece of grill between the two headlight bezels? A previous owner painted my grill black, including the little grill bits between t...

How do I remove trim Dino coupe 2000?

I need to make a repair to the lower section of the front wing panel on my coupe, above the front right jack point. I would like to remove the stainless steel rocker trim. Can anyone tell me how to go about removing this piece of trim? Thanks, Ben.

Steering column cover

My 1967 Dino coupe is missing the fabric steering column cover. I am going to guess that the part is to keep grease from the universal joints from dripping on your pants?

Front turn signal lens 1967 Dino coupe

With the front bumper off my car for some touch up paint on the body below the bumper, I decided to take a look at my turn signal lenses. They are clear [cracks and mounted with the incorrect screws], and I thought maybe I would cast some in orange/amber using the clear ones as a model. Upon closer ...

Reproduction labels for large Dinoplex

The original label plates on my Dinoplex are completely illegible. I purchased the reproduction labels from Superformance and the one label plate is too long and the holes don't line up with the mounting pegs on the Dinoplex cover. Has anyone else run into this problem? The text portion is fine, but...

Re: Dino coupe 2000 front grill finish

That photo looks like it is all shiny metal, inside and out. If you have pitting in the pot metal surface, can it even be re-polished?
