This part is the silver piece that splits the headlights and holds the front bow tie emblem. Mine cracked after hitting a pothole. I know these are hard to find but if anyone has a good used one for sale, just let me know. Black: 2004:

Spoke to Miles. They are out of stock, unfortunatly!
They are hard to find but they do show up periodically.

Per @rockytop, depending on the damage they can often be repaired. Is the spear itself actually broken (visible on the outside) or is it one or more of the tabs that hold it in place? Tabs can be repaired.

Not sure if yours is satin or chrome, but some folks have had them wrapped with "chrome" so even if the damage is visible that might be an option for the one you have as well.

Were I you, I would do everything "tryable" to repair the spear, unless it's broken into bits and/or pieces lost. Cracks, mounting tabs, all that can be repaired with some epoxy, shade-tree engineering, and patience. After repair, matching the silver shouldn't be too tough, or paint it your R's body color. You're right, this particular part is definitely heading into "hen's teeth" territory..............................Mike

I tried repairing one and had no luck with it. With the curve they have to them, it is almost like it is under tension. I even made a jig to hold it in place while I glued it up. I left it dry for 2 days and then took it out of the jig. It lasted all of a day and then popped back apart. I had to clamp it up and have pressure in 2 directions to make it fit back together. Maybe it needed to be plastic welded instead of glued together. I kept it and may see if the body shop can plastic weld it.
