Marchal mounts?

I can blow this up bigger on my email photo, but I can't make it any bigger here... But does it look like there are Marchal mounts behind this grill?

Yes, That appears to be an original grille you have. Those are the correct fog light brackets in the grille.

All GT/CSs had the Marchal brackets in the grilles, even the ones originally fitted with Lucas lights.

What would the group do with this? Leave it alone? Put a set of Marchals "back" on...?

I did not know this. I thought it was an early/late build thing. So the best option is to leave it alone!

It is correct as it is so the choice is yours. If you prefer the Marchals you could change it if you like the Lucas you can leave it as is.

If you go back to the Marchals (expensive) you will have to deal with the Lucas mounting holes in your grill surround.
