1969 grille cleaned up and polished

Metal vs. plastic .. metal is easier to bring back to life.

Going back to the 1960s …

The first plastic grille in the 99 was around 1973 and it was a beefy piece of plastic. At some point someone at SAAB thought that was unreasonable and that all 99’s should have a cheap plastic grille that has made them very rare in recent history. I have 3 plastic grilles, no make that 4, all of which have varying degrees of broken to them. When a 1969 all metal setup was made available, I could not pass it up. However, I was skeptical at first until I fitted on. I quite like it.
