Hot air choke tube set and base that bolts to manifold for late 70's Pontiac 400's (77, and 78-79) for sure. Sets that aren't rusted to nothing are tough to come by, and usually the press fit seal for the tube that goes from the base to the carb is sort of loose.

Inline Tube repros the 403 and several other Pontiac motors, but not for the later 70's L78 or W72 400's. With how popular Firebirds/Trans Ams are getting, especially with the Pontiac motors, id say its a good potential market.

An electric choke never worked as good for me as a properly set up hot air choke, even without the heat riser valve, it's still more consistent performance than an electric choke.

Default Darksiders need love too!

Patch panels for full size cars, specifically 1963 & 1966.
A lot of nice full sized cars out there with very little support.

I have explored the idea of making repops of the lenses via additive manufacturing (basically a liquid acrylic 3d print) I work in that space and the margin of effort vs financial reward is pretty close. If there were enough interest it wouldn't be to difficult to print RH an LH repops of the side marker lenses as well as the front lower park lamp housings...those are even more difficult to find than the lenses. the park lamp housings can actually be printed with a high degree of strength and have a reflective coating applied cheaply. Trust me, I have a 70 lemans and through the years of it being disassembled and moved around they went missing, took me forever to find NOS parts only to hit a goose a year ago and really tear up the LH side, thankfully my front valance has never been a concern. Honestly...If i ever smashed up the front end beyond repair id would be much cheaper to put all of the repop GTO components on (including GTO fenders) than to ever try sourcing all the 70' parts.

Default Trim Rings

It would be nice to see some 15" trim rings that replicate the 14". I like the detail and brushed look of the 14".

Default Quarters

Does anyone know if full quarters will be coming out for the 68-69 convertibles?

I just discovered the rear gas tank strap screw is weird and apparently not reproduced. I'm not sure what models and years used them but definitely more than my 70 LeMans:

There are also lots of references to the 70 LeMans front valance in this thread.

I would add the radiator support. I understand there may not be much of a market but it surprised me when I found I could buy a repro for a 70 GTO but not for a LeMans.
