Best Place To Buy RS Grille

I am in the middle of redoing my wifes 68 camaro and want to put a RS grille in the car. When the car was painted I bought the RS fenders for it.
Where is the best place to buy a complete grille for it. I want it to be a good one.
Are most all the grilles manufactured at the same place or are some better than others.

Thanks, Rodney

Re: Best Place To Buy RS Grille

One thing to consider is going to electric-operated doors instead of the stock vacuum setup. DSE makes a great kit for that, but it's not cheap (about $425 just for the motor kit). The grilles and other pieces can be purchased from plenty of places, as noted above- haven't heard of much difference between the manufacturers.

Definitely will be doing the electric motors. i will check out the kit from DSE for that.Thanks.
My main concern is getting a good quality grille, and I just wanted to be sure i do some homework before ordering it.
Appreciate all the help. The site has been very helpful for me.

I bought the complete RS headlight kit that includes the DSE motors, grill, headligt doors etc. From Steves. The grill is OER and fit well but did need a little clean prior to paint.

Mark from Retro-Electro can set you up with all you need. I'm very happy with my RS set up from him. His kits are top notch.

Could you post a few pictures of your set up or email them to supercharged347@msn.com

I will give Mark a shout. A friend of mine just installed his electric set up on his and it works awesome. I didn't realize he sold complete grille kits as well.
Thanks,Rodney

Re: Best Place To Buy RS Grille

Somebody is making killer billet rs grills if you are going the custom route. Maybe Year One ? I have seen them on display at SEMA but can't remember who is doing them.
