    Thanks for the reply Ed B. No. I have a bonnet. The panel I’m in need of is the actual nose panel... the very front part of the car that the grill and headlights and bumpers attatch to. Unfortunately the one on my car has had a few sub standard repairs done to it, and replacement is a better option than attempting to rectify the issues with this panel.

    You could chop the panel out of that if local?

    Really? I’ve just had a look at their website and doesn’t show anything, maybe it’s gone. Had hoped somebody may have a new one, but if I can find a good one in a car I can cut off that would do.

    I think the R16 at pick-a-part left last week. I've kept a NOS one in my garage, unloved, for 15 years and sold it only about 6 weeks ago! It's always the way. Anyway if you know of Mike Neil try him as he bought it. I don't think he was using it for anything specific so may part with it. From memory it would have fitted a post '75 model (Plastic grille), so you'd need to keep your chrome grille mounting brackets.
