    I have 2 spares ,1 came with 72 GTS we bought as it had a black painted grille in it and he had the factory silver and black grille so I swapped cause it contrasted better on the flat black of car.
    I also have a parts grille for the pieces of plastic to restore other grilles.
    I may sell the grille out of the 72 Ranchero as I want to buy the custom Billet aluminum grille from Vegas HotRods

    No my buddy Chris said it was from company or person that was building and selling them years ago.

    I call home built a person who builds a custom part 1 -2 times but less then a dozen.if you start mass producing even if its based out of a garage or shop behind your home it's a Commercial Operation as your selling them in mass to the public.
    Usually there are jigs and tooling made to aid in making each one exactly the same.

    "Home Built"or "Home Made" to me means somebody at home took some Aluminum, cut,bent & welded using basic tools you can buy,not special jigs or tooling made specific for mass producing a product over and over again.

    I have made some Home made parts for these cars and even though I had a basic design the second one came out slightly different then the first as I made improvements that made the second easier to build and also easier to attach

    The 1st A/C Evaporator Delete duct

    Screenshot_20191124-112057_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20191124-113038_Gallery.jpg
    1st had welded nuts for Lower blower case bolts.
    The 1 nut was inside of the duct cover the other nut was on outer flange.The duct cover was shaped on angle on bottom

    Second A/C Evaporator Delete Duct

    Screenshot_20191124-111808_Gallery.jpg
    Second case I modified original design.Bottom of duct cover was more straight across and L shaped thus exposing both holes for the lower blower box bolts.
    I also just drilled holes and not welded bolts to make it easier to install and owner just use new bolts and nuts to attach

    Flange was designed slightly different then the 1st I made

    I made them from store bought tools,nothing I used was fabricated specifically to aid in production of this duct thus it's Home Built,one of.......
