Wanted BJ7/8 front grill top cowl

Hi,

I am looking for the top cowl for a BJ7/8 front grill. Doesn't matter about condition as I can get it restored. I have tried buying a new one but it was pretty awful and I had to be returned to the supplier.

I have found new parts not to fit as well as original so I try as much as possible to restore the original whenever the opportunity arises.

Cheers

Barry,
I am sure you know that shipping to New Zealand is expensive. I bought some Morris 8 parts and the shipping costs as much as the parts. I have 3 original cowls. One is almost perfect but it has some scratches in the chrome. We were in New Zealand for a month in 2019. Loved your country! But I did not see any Healeys running around. Just missed a car show as we were leaving one town. Lots of old minis and American Iron going to the show.

Hi Jerry,

Yes, I think I have almost paid the courier more money than the parts suppliers!
Great news on the top cowls. Would you be able to send me photos of the four and we can agree a price for the chosen one.

Cheers

Barry, I just noticed that you ask for a grill, and I answered for the cowl. I took pictures of the best cowl this am. Posting on this site will reduce the resolution. If you send me a private message and are interested in a cowl. I can send you 4 or 5 pictures. This cowl is an 8 out of 10. Ie: I would use it on my car. But the car i am working on now will be for sale so I need a 10. This cowl has one scratch and one small depression that is not a dent. I have not done any work on the cowl. I also have grills but all need about 3 slats replaced. I have set them aside for when I finish this car. Rob one of good slots to fix the other. I have no idea what these are worth in current shape. If you ate intern any of the parts, I would expect you to investigate shipping.
