Introduction and Tail light panel woes :(

Hello,

I just recently picked up an original 1968 GT/CS, I am so excited to get it back into good shape. The car has an 89 5.0 swap, it's red, it was originally a 302 Auto Presidential Blue car. I am probably going to go restomod with it. The first thing I am working on correcting is the hideous reproduction tail light panel that's on the car. The piece I removed is exactly 60 inches in width and leaves some pretty huge gaps on the sides and at the top of the panel. The previous told me it was a cheap 100 dollar repop, obviously I want something much nicer to restore the good looks of the rear end. I am looking at a used panel that's on sale on ebay and I am also looking at more expensive reproductions.

I am wondering if any of you have a used 68 GT/CS or Shelby tail light panel available that would fit like the original. I am also wondering what your experience is with the reproduction pieces? Is there a brand that fits like the factory piece? So far I've had a difficult time getting sizes from companies offering reproductions and I am worried I am going to end up with another bad piece.

Thanks,

Jai
