    My 72 Comet needs a hood and I thought a fiberglass would be cool(standard and not GT) but I would think it not likely to be availale. Any idea's?

    Here you go, it is the only glass hood I see http://www.usbody.com/ on the left scroll down to comet anf the offer a stock hood, which you could bolt on the GT scoop if you wanted to, I think they look good together.

    What about the grills? Where do you get the all black grills that I see on many maverick pics?

    Black Grills

    I think they are all the same with the exception of color. Why not paint it?

    Mine is all old and crack in places. I need to purchase another one. I have seen some with round turn signals & some with no turn signals. All were just pics on the net so I haven't seen a company that sell them.

    Comet Guy

    [QUOTE=Corbin Johnson]IMO = in my opinion..[/QUOTE] Hi Corbin, I'm the guy that bought your 72 Maverick, I'll be transfering engine trans and running gear from my wreacked 71 Comet GT,When I figure out how to send pictures. I'll send some of the Comet,It's a good example why not to use drag radials in the rain.

    The Maverick and Comet grills are not reproduced unless I have been asleep
    and they have come out recently.
    Post a wanted ad in the Cars/Wanted section of this board. E-bay is a great
    place to find them.

    Best of luck-

    Seth
