Default Help...in search of some very rare parts......

I am on the hunt for a Hood & Grille for a 1953 Citroen Traction Avant Model 11 BL. Any names, leads, fields, or creekbeds would be a great help.
Thanks for what its worth....
Edit* And no, it is not for the Miata. Ha!

Yep, that would be the one.....
Found a grille in France for $1,000 U.S. dollars, just to give ya an idea of the scarcity we are running into. Hood can prolly be fabbed....but the Chevron grille is a must.
Uncle who has been building Anglias since the 60's, found this little gem a while back. I had never seen one until his.
Edit* That one on Craigslist is not the BL model, Chevrons in the grille are key.

Thanks for the lead.....e-mailed the link and the hood alone (plus another donor for $800) is going to help for sure.

Still need stuff for the Citroen? I could look around over here if you want. But with the dollar down and the Euro up, better be prepared to pay an arm and a leg.
