All 3 grilles are listed by sjsportscars.com

Part nos. B100B0522F B100B0523F B100B0524F

If you want new that is, but they are metal not plastic.

Listing an item does not always mean it's available, but it's a start.

Or you could buy metal grille from ebay and cut and shape it yourself.

Good luck.

The original grills are 19 gauge 13 x 13 cm. Its the mesh commonly listed on ebay for use on bird and rabbit enclosures.

I bought the Stainless steel version and painted it black to match the centre grill I bought from SJ Sports Cars. I only bought it because it had the towing eye aperture re enforced with a thicker wire.

I have a spare bumper in my shed that I removed the original grills from to make a template for the side grills. Trying to remove the original grills is fun :bonk: you really get to understand how strong Sikaflex is removing the originals you almost certainly will badly damage the original grills removing them.

I am going to post on the "Major project thread Black S.E. reshell & Chassis contd" about the grill replacement with photos.
