Hi John - I bought mine (with the gasket etc) about 1 year ago from SC Parts. Pricy but seems to be still available. SNG Barratt does not seem to have (although their new website is not up to much, IMHO) but possibly worth giving them a call.
Best regards
Chris

hi thanks for the reply i just phoned them they don't have any at the moment. SNG Barratt have stopped selling them. xk engineering don't have any, david manners have them on back order but they have no idea when they might get them although their website says 4 days that is not the case, it would be nice if they keeped their site up to date any way if any more suggestions. many thanks

John - you could try one of the e-type restorers who sometimes seem to be able to source parts when we poor mortals cannot. Could start with Claasic Motor Cars where Paul Norton who runs the stores may be able to assist (Paul Norton <Pauln@classic-motor-cars.co.uk>). I'm sure you have the part numbers for each component of the tailgate grille asembly but if not, let me know.
Good luck
Chris
