CNW and DT&I Gong bell Nose plates. Adding those gong bells to the front of the CNW or DT&I diesels has always been one of those tasks that always gave me trouble. As the number of models needing these bells grew, a easier method was researched and found. These new plates just fold up with sides, bottom and a top cap and slide into an opening you make in the nose with the aid of a included template. There are three nose plates per package. Gong bells are not included but any of the commercially available bells will fit.
