I think you need better pictures to explain Roy - I’m looking at 8 ball and can’t follow your two last posts :D

How to tell if I have the correct front or not?
Looking at your car it appears to have a moulded horizontal ribs where the grille slats fit. Your front end is 5. On the 5a that area is flat to take a chrome one piece grille.
I had chassis number 543 and was never aware of front end differences on the 5.
