    Short answer, find better original pieces from parts vehicles.
    What is it you're after?

    Info as to wether there are any repops companies out there or SOL. I have a ‘48 F1 but would be interested in M47 exterior trim. Also Acadian and Beaumont grills 1960’s.

    I have yet to see any repop Merc items, however they were fairly common up here so I am sure you could locate some good originals(Try Terry @ https://www.rustinpieces.ca/ ). same goes for the Beaumont grille. Try the dudes over on the Canadian Poncho boards.
    I work for a GM dealer and the couple times I have tried to source repop Acadian items found nothing at all, even up here it's hard to come by.

    Thanks . My brother ran the Beaumont grill on his 1964 Chevelle and it looked a hundred times better than the stock one. A friend had a ‘69 Pontiac Beaumont.

    In the Rodder's Journal #32 which is chock full of '32 Fords there is featured a Barry Lobeck built '32 hiboy with Monarch hubcaps. Always wondered how they found a set. Can't ask Barry.
