Default 66 Chevelle hard to find parts

So my 66 chevelle convertible is in the final stages of assembly at the paint shop and I'm having some trouble sourcing some parts. Tried searching sites, calling vendors. I see most cars with these parts so they have to be out there I guess I just don't know where to find me. Any help is very much appreciated!!

-windshield pillar molding (molding that goes on a-pillar, not wing window or windshield reveal)

-rear emblem carrier (goes with red/white/blue plastic piece that is on rear under the trunk seen here: https://www.opgi.com/chevelle/1966/e...blems/CHV4318/ )

-"headlight plate" not sure of the name but it's a plate that goes inbetween the rad support and the headlight mounting bucket.



I guess that's all for now, until my painter finds more parts he's missing or has already tossed during the restoration

Again thanks for any help!
Danny

I am building a 66 Chevelle convert. right now for a friend and I could not find A-pillar covers anywhere for it. They don't re-pop the convertible one's but they do make the hardtop one's. You can make the hard top one's work by trimming the top and a little hammer and dolly work. As for the other parts call Jim Dyer at Dyer Chevy parts in Stockon and he will have or lead you in the right direction.

Found the pilar trim on ebay used.
Found the rear emblem carrier at chicago muscle parts online used.
Going to get both cleaned up and brought back to like new condition.

Thanks for the help! Too bad these items arent remanufactured yet! Took me a while to track em down!

If you are looking for the mounting plate that the headlight buckets sit in, I have them. PM me with a email or number and I can send you some pics.
