Default 69 Camaro standard grille ?

I've seen aftermarket 69 Camaro standard grilles that are said to be made on original GM tooling. Has anyone here used one? How do they compare to an NOS part as far as quality, fit, construction, etc? Any feedback is appreciated. Thxs

So no one has used one of these reproduction grilles? Heartbeat City advertises their standard grilles as "manufactured using the original GM tooling". I thought I saw one other company stating the same thing, but I can't remember which one. Any info on the quality and fit is helpful. Thxs

The plastic is silver colored. Also, I forgot to mention these have an extra hole next to each headlight (for washers?).

The NOS grill appears to have the same mystery holes

So not totally sure if there was a definite answer to the "original GM tooling" repro grill? Has anyone actually used one of them? Seems if it was made on original tooling it would be as good as an NOS piece, unless the tooling was completely worn out? Even old tooling can be cleaned up.
