    Any guidance on this would be appreciated

    Adding relays I see, good on you. It looks like it’s continuous with the center of the grille.

    They do, but they are part of the grill assembly (2 halves). If you want to remove the assembly, there are 2 nuts at each side in the inner fender well at the core support and 4-6 screws mounting the top to the core support and there are 4-6 fasteners on the bottom side as well. Then the whole grill assembly can be removed. It's pretty easy.

    Thanks guys. There is a set of gaskets that lay directly on the grille for the headlight covers. Is this a part still available?

    Detroit Muscle Technologies should have them. I sent him all my original flat rubber and foam gaskets for reproduction templates when I restored my car ('65 300).

    Is this black rubber plug available still? Would like to freshen up the wiring and use a new rubber piece if possible
