I have Trim Parts hood and grill bars and was impressed with fit and quality. I didn't get from Eckler's but that shouldn't make any difference. I also bought their grill bar and was impressed that the casting was heavier in the area where they always break.

One assumes that cracker1956 is talking about pieces for a 56, and oldchey57 is talking about pieces for a 57. Therein lies the difference.

Agree I sent the one I received as it was not the same shape as the ‘57’s hood.

I had the original, fix the small break, and re-chromed.

Nothing fits as well as an original. Everything aligns up perfectly.

The quality of the repro parts can change *over time* as well... sometimes they start out very poor, and get better with time, and these days perhaps their quality was acceptable before but now gets 'cheaper made' (and poorer?)...

Fit no better. I had fender extensions and hood bar extensions on fender that were crap.
