Ducktail grill

Quick question:

Is the decklid grill on the ducktails the same as the grill found on the standard decklid? I understand glass is never a perfect fit but this seems really off.

Oh yeah, if it is a different grill, anyone have one forsale?

Adam

You will either need to get the early model metal grill or trim down a couple of slats on the later model plastic grill. When I needed one, I just posted on the classifieds. There are lots of the early grills out there for sale.

I wonder if ducktail manufacturer's make different size openings? I have a GT Racing ducktail and my plastic grill was too wide, but the early metal grill fit perfectly.
