Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Our grade B, driver quality grille halves are nothing to brag about... We will assure you they will have no more than one break. If they have two breaks then there is nothing to support the horizontal bars. We will often ship these parts with a zip tie to hold the grille together and to avoid further damage in shipping. Once bolted in place you will not easily be able to tell there is a break as the upper and lower mounting tabs will keep the grille bars rigid and together. When ordering less than perfect grille parts you may want to call first for an accurate description of stock on hand. Obviously not all grilles will be damaged in the same place or be worth the exact same dollar amount.
