I have heard nothing but bad reviews about the reproduction air grabber. I have no knowledge of Roseville Moparts. Save your receipts.

Thanks Droptop, I just came across them and hasn't seen any comments on our forum. Does paying$400 for a really rough one seem excessive, when you know it will be another $4-600 to get it gone over? Thanks for tutor input..

Some where here they have a person they send them to and have stated they look as good as new. I would go with original over reproduced any day.

Thank you Russ. Yes. I have that reference point from past discussions. I'll keep looking, they are hard to come by. It seems they are going for half a grand, even if they are junk.

Cost for part's are so high even for used. Then if you get used it need's to be returned to like new is a plus cost to you. Good luck with the car and keep us posted on the progress. :thumbsup2:

you wont be disappointed he is real good .
he will x-ray it first to find all the cracks then soda blast it then repair any damage .
if you go on his face book you will see what mine looked like when i sent it to him and step by step to repair it .

What doesn’t fit on the reproduction units? I’m think about put an Airgrabber on my 69 and want to make sure I understand what I’m getting into.

I got a original part from Tony's Mopar. It wasn't perfect, was usable as is, car show 2.jpg but I don't have a show car either. My experience with the re-pop was the same as Ricks.

I was going to try a repro unit, but finding you can't get one anywhere, all are on backorder and have been for almost a year. I've heard there are general fit issues and quality with the repro items. Good luck with your search.

Nice looking bird and install. I will look up Tony's Mopar and see what's available. Thanks for the info.
