front grilles for a 101 sprint

I've checked with the usual parts sources and am surprised not to have found side front grills for a 101 sprint. They are aluminum right? seems like an easy reproduce. does any one sell a well done version of these? Thanks

if I recall my 101 grills were chromed over brass(?) I think....anyway very nice design apart from the studs that break off and then some bodgers stick screws through the whole thing instead of soldering new studs on the back...oh well POs!

The heart grill is 2 pieces for sure, can't recall if the eyebrows were too.

Seen them on ebay, but you gotta be quick!

Are you looking for a set? I have a spare set with all studs (all fixed and brazed on.) They will need to be rechromed, and are imperfect but could be a good set with some work (no major damage to them, holes that were drilled through them for screws have been filled. A few small dents are there as well.) I have a better set for my Sprint that I'm going to use.

it is actually much better they are not chromed as they ideally need to be fitted to the car first, then chromed

Even brand new ones need fitting on 90% of the cars out there (unless you have a sprint with a totally virgin front nose)
