If any of you fine gentlemen know of a good used front grill for a MK IX Jaguar - please let me know.

Most likely a difficult item to source given this is probably the most common body part subject to accident damage.
My suggestion would be to advertise in Jaguar car club magazines world-wide for either the part itself or a donor car for parting out. I presume you have already contacted the commercial Jaguar dismantlers around the world.

David Manners UK.
They are very helpful and if they have not got one they will point you in the right direction.
It is possible to repair a damaged one to as new. Again David Manners will know.

Thanks guys (and also to my dear friend Brian Vogel who found me one on ebay).
my broken grill is dented and the surround is made of something like aluminium which cracks and breaks when bent. This item does not really lend itself to repair. I have joined the Jaguar Enthusiast club and have advertised in their wanted section. I have found a new grill in the USA for $450. Lots of money of you ask me.
Between us all - we will find one.
Thanks for the support guys.
