Made foreign ! And a couple places have to be
Cut to fit the 70 gto judge I've dealt with fitment issues

Option!! Company's like tamraz's have them

Honestly for a "real" Judge, or any GTO for that matter I would be searching for a "nice" OEM core support. Even one that needs some rust repair.

Core Support

I agree that a real Judge deserves real GM parts. Your first choice is to locate an original GM GTO part that's in decent shape (look on eBay or Craig's List). Your second choice is to find an original GM GTO part that needs some attention. A third choice is an original GM part off a Lemans/Tempest that can be cut down to GTO specs.

If you have access to your original GTO core support you may be able to harvest the top piece (the top piece is the only piece that's different from a Lemans/Tempest) and use it in place of the top piece on the Lemans/Tempest support, OR you can use the GTO piece as a template to cut the Lemans/Tempest piece to match the contours of the GTO piece. The modified section of the top piece of the core support is hidden from view once assembled, but you'll want to do a decent job regardless.
