What years does this fit?
« on: January 18, 2007, 10:52:49 AM »
Anyone know what years this is "supposed" to fit?

 I'm thinking 77-78, maybe 79-81 ???

If I had to guess, it'd be 79-81.  It looks like you can see where it stretched over the center nose section.

79-81 from the shape, but the logo matches 73-77 decals.

I agree, looks like '79-'81 just by the shape.

I think I should get one of those for my 79 front end, its full of cracks and is generally unsightly, and i can't afford a replacement, where can those be found?

79-81 cause you can see where the pieces that go between the headlights have been either torn or cut off.

I can't say for sure but it looks completely different than the LeBra I had on my '79. Unless there were different styles (of coverage) available for '79-'81, I 'd say this is for '77-'78

Commando headlights :o

The more I look at it, I guess it is '79-'81. Just not as much coverage as the LeBra unit
