1975 Impala chrome grills

How's it going Team Impala?
I'm using this site for the first time and was hoping someone would be able to help figure out where I can locate a chrome grill for my 75' Impala, I live in Toronto Ontario, and have been searching the net for some time now and have been unsuccessful finding it one, so if anyone has info on this please let me know.

My semi-educated guess is that you may not find one in a "Pre-chromed" condition, ready to buy.

I suspect you'd need to locate one and send it to a chroming shop which I imagine will run a few hundred US dollars.

Here's a regular used grill and a Billet Aluminum grill on Ebay.

Thanks Al,
Your semi-educated guess was just that for I've already contacted that dealer that sells the same grill that your directing me to and guess what? No luck. I figured since this site hosts a large number of Impala owners perhaps someone would refer me to a place that either sells grills that I've miss or has sent out their grill for chroming and was satisfied enough to refer me to them. Again thanks

Is the grill metal? How about having it powder coated chrome. I know a guy that does that. http://www.classicpowdercoat.com/

Hey, thanks for your help. The grill is actually not metal, its die-cast.
