Afternoon,

Looking for a source of honeycomb grille facing, like this:

Wolseley Nine Grille by Penguin 45, on Flickr

This is not part of the radiator, purely a decorative front.

All info greaty appreciated.

Chris,
P45.

If you only want small bits, get an air filter and chuck it on the fire, lots of them have this stuff in the centre. Wouldn't be much use for a radiator of that size, though.
