The large front bumper brackets, the attached center coresupport bracket, and the small stamped valance to front fender brackets are usually the hardest to find. The small stamped steel valance brackets are reproduced, and are cheap.
The Chinese repro core support is not bent correctly on the stepped edge where the fan shroud attaches, and the entire length of that flange will have to be bent to the correct angle. Good used '69-72 hood hinges hold up better than the repro's. Have to be careful in sourcing them, '71-72 GTO's and endura nose LeMans used the same hood hinge, but with thicker springs, and you don't want to bolt the hd spring version on '69-70 GTO's or LeMans with their lighter hoods.
