Tail panel hole filler plates

Branda shows a photo of a set of 6, but they all look the same size. Anyone know if they are the two large/4 small?

If not anyhone know a source for a set? Repro that looks close and "works well" is fine as its for a restomod, not original...

Hmmm.... didn't think this was going to be a hard one. Not a trick question!

Guess I just buy Branda and hope for the best.

socket covers

I e-mailed Branda and they told me the covers are the same part as a Shelby and there are different size panels to cover what you need. hope this helps. Tim

Hello Neil. Are those the original covers or re-pops. The person who had my car is still looking for the original ones that was on my car. Mine is almost ready for paint and want to have them in place so was also wondering about the ones Branda has. Thanks for your time. Tim

To the best of my knowledge, these are original.

Dalorzo, I now have an extra set of these original USED plates. I bought a full set from Rob in Bremerton, Washington (one of our site guys) because I was missing 2 on my Cal Sp. I recently bought the 2 missing ones locally. Either set would need to be cleaned, blasted and painted and I would sell one set to you if you have not found a satisfactory set (2 large & 4 small) elsewhere. Let me know what works for you and we'll work something with $ and shipping costs over there. High Country Bob here in Colorado.

Bob, did not get the email. I will be in the US in May and if we can work something out that would be great. I'll be Walleye fishing in Minnesota for 2- 1/2 weeks so shipping to there in a few weeks would work best.... I'll send you a PM

9:10 PM Thursday, Denver time. We've been gone all day and just got home. Our 1st stop this morning was to the post office to mail my plates to another site member in Maine. I'm SO sorry, Grrrrrrrrrrr, but I thought I had lost you. You might ask again on our Cal Sp site and see if another site member has or knows of another set. I know that I'll be on the lookout for you. I do have screen kits and Lucas pedestal kits made up if they will help you with your project. I also bought 3 sets of new proper Lucas fog lamps w/ blk. covers this past year from a fellow for $272.00 each set and have 2 sets left if you have such a need for your project, $272.00 plus shipping (hopefully stateside). Again sorry we did not connect in time!!!!!!!!!!! Anything else me or other site members can do for you??? Bob Teets here.

No worries. Thanks for the reply. I can always buy a set of Branda's as its just a restomod, not original restoration....
