If I recall correctly same same bro. The "replacement" sheet metal re-production stuff is one size fits all and you have to modify it slightly for use on the LeMans (The little vent holes need to be cut out and the vents installed.) Or you can always go the route of a parts car. (I have not heard great things about the fitment of the reproduction fenders.)
70 GTO fenders are different where the bumper and lower valence fit from 70-72 LeMans and 71-72 GTO fenders. Compare your fender to the 70 GTO and you will see the difference. You could source a fiberglass GTO bumper and keep your hood, then use those repop fenders.
Why aren't you close to Ohio? :lol:
I have a pair, one on the car and one off, that aren't perfect by any means, but I am putting on a fiberglass gto front end on and will be wanting to get rid of these-no storage room. I even have a decent header panel and front valance panel that I had bought before changing directions. The o nly thing I don't have is a Lemans hood, the car has a GTO one with lots of rust and a homemade hood tach
I actually bought it used. But it is a VFN Fiberglass one.
Got a killer deal, the guy was in Delaware but had a friend coming this way, so delivery was free. couldn't have done it if I had to pay shipping.
It already had some support framework done, but I think I am going to remove it and get the VFN installation kit. The way it is right now it isn't set up for tilting, just removing.
I thought I would start sharing my restoration story. I have a 67 GTO I purchased about a month ago. It has blue exterior, black interior, bench seat, automatic on the tree, PS, 4bbl, 2.93 posi, AC and that is about it. I bought it from the original owner and so far, it looks like everything...
I want to put 3 point seat belts in my 65 GTO instead of refreshing the bucket seat original lap belts. From what I have read, it looks like designs for convertibles ( with a new attachment point in the door pillar) could work. It will make access to the rear seat even more awkward, but the...
A member had a noise coming from the front end of the car while driving:
"Bought my 65 in 2011. A 10 year frame-off resto had been completed in 1998.
About a month ago, I started to notice a rotational noise that seemed to be coming from the left front. Sounded like a wheel bearing. Pulled the...
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to my build. I picked up Eggplant Jones (EPJ) just after I got back from a deployment. I've wanted a '68 GTO since I was a little tike and saw one at a car show. I'm talking more than 20 years ago. Fast forward, and one of my buddies finds this car and I drive out...
I been out of the restoration scene since selling my '67 hard top a few years back.
I picked this up last month and excited to jump back in.
The car is original Tyrol Blue/ Parchment, YS 400, factory A/C, Auto.
The car needs a ton of new sheet metal, full floor, full trunk, full quarters, tail...
