    The chrome on my grille is peeling off so I'd like to replace it rather than searching-out a chrome shop, paying shipping, possibly getting subpar results, etc.

    I'd even be open to a full header/light/grille (front end) setup from a similar Diplomat if the shipping is "reasonable". I don't hate the Lebaron's "eyebrow" parking lights, but I'm not married to em either.

    Post links to local sellers if you see one... I'll follow up.

    77/78 and 79 are different.

    Good to know. Thanks, Doc.

    Is it just some mounting mojo or is it completely unworkable?

    Oh yeah, the fins... I forgot about that. Aside from cosmetics are they basically the same though? I'm not a whole lotta worried about "correct", I just want it to look nice. Mine is structurally sound, no cracks or broken fins... it's actually in great shape save the peeling chrome.

    I doubt that I'd ever run across someone who'd know the difference... unless, of course, I ran across you. :D

    I do think I prefer the fins, they add a bit of class. But it ain't a deal breaker.

    I saw a decent and correct ('79) grille on ebay a while back but I let it get away figuring another one would appear... not so much.
