I even tried to buy the frank end of a Mini Moke being broken for spares :o :cry: .

The Grill at £400.00 was in worse condition and had more plastic padding than mine has or will have.
Hi Doug. Does that mean you are still looking for a Front Panel?

Well up to yesterday I was still looking for one.

The firm I approached in UK was regretfully unable to help. :(

I am now resigned to having the grille hammered back into shape and some (lots of) 'Bondo' etc applied to finish it as was apparently done to it previously.

BTW do you have (or know of) an available one, and if so how much? PM me if necessary.

I emailed them on several occasions and also telephoned them.

No dice. They had plenty of opportunity over a number of months.

I had hoped to get a nice new front grille through the insurance. :lol:

Oh well, I wish I had bitten the bullet and just done what I am doing now, but months ago.

Hi Margret,

I do unreservedly apologise.

The firm that I was directed to, and emailed, was:
M Parts
Albion Works
Vale Business Park
Cowbridge
Vale of Glamorgan
CF71 7PF

without success.

In the end, the chap in garage used the well known and oft used technique of 'brute force and ignorance' and beat it into shape again.

I'd have much preferred a new panel from you. :D
Having a moking good time!
