      Looking for either a "nice" (I will pay $$ for NOS) used front rad support off of a 74/75 Scirocco with the metal "duckbill". I'll also consider just a the lower portion with the duckbill only if someone has access. Figure I'll try here before I make a replica from scratch

      Help me get the one of the last bits I need to restore my 77

      Unless it is a 74-75 I'm not interested. Thanks.

      I have the entire front support. Shipping to PA from CA of something that big would be pretty pricey though I'd imagine.

      Any pictures? Shipping via Greyhound isn't too bad and I also have a Fedex account I can use since we get shipping breaks through my work..

      I'll try to get a pic this weekend. Has a bit of surface rust on the back side down under the radiator support area - I think they all do because of poor paint coating in that area. The lip got folded under in the middle at some point and I restored it about 90% with hammer and dolly. Otherwise nice and solid, and I cut it out on the back so there are no holes where the spot welds are.

      No it's a 74-75-ish only Scirocco thing. The bottom of the rad support had a metal "duckbill" stamped into the metal from the factory. Really small detail, but if I am restoring the car I'd prefer this look over a plastic rabbit duckbill.

      Thanks though,

      Matt

      I didn't have enough time today to get the pics before the sun went down. Will try after I get home during the week.

      Nice find! A guy in the U.S. seems to have one complete with some of the inner fender bits I need so I'll probably opt for that.. but man that's tempting to just sit on the shelf!

      Thanks dude
