Lower smoked 04 grill

I lost one of my lower smoked plastic grills this past weekend. I understand they are no longer available only a full 1 piece is now made is that correct? If not where can I purchase the driver side lower plactic grill? Thanks Jim F

Jim, I assume you have already checked the normal places for a new replacement, so here is a source that may now be working with XLR parts - they specialise in Allante parts: www.cadillacking.com. I was given there info by by one of the parts guys at Sutliff Cadillac and was able to get parts for our other Caddy (DTS), so check them out. Jon

I checked on GMPD and it appears that the lower grill and both DSCC bezels are now a one-piece unit. (Some disasembly required on the front end though.) At least with the new design, they can't pop out anymore. Maybe I'll upgrade mine now.

Here's the link to another guy who won an auction for a bunch of factory parts. He doesn't know what a lot of the stuff is, since he's corvette-specific, but he's in the process of sorting things out. The owner (Pat) emailed me a few weeks ago. He says he has alot of trim pieces, some suspension, and electrical parts as well as many others.
