Rear tail panel tail light close outs 70-73 firebird
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:54:54 AM »
Does anyone know of a vendor that sells the sheetmetal closeouts for the rear tail panel to quarter panel tail light area on a 70-73?  I wish I had a picture of it, but the shop already removed the pieces.  The one that he saved was from a crash damaged side, so it wouldn't be a good example. 

There are two angled pieces of sheet metal that tie the tail panel into the quarter panel on the top and bottom of each side.  I found them for a 74+ firebird, but not the 70-73.  The shop may need to fab replacements.

Can you post a pic of the 74 up piece to be sure I know what you are after?

They fabbed the parts.  I'd have to find the '74 parts again.
