I don't know if you're still looking but apart from complete front wings ( www.panelsandlamps.co.uk )  I found (and bought a lot from) www.autoblechteile.de in Germany (they take UK debit cards and write good English!) and you could always try www.extremebends.com in Canada.
I had to buy a front bumper from the USA at a high price but that paled into insignificance alongside the freight charge and then I got stuffed for Import Duty into the UK as well!
Good Luck whatever happens!

Hi James
I bought two sets of sills for each side and a boot floor pan. I am fairly sure they are not OEM but they do it pretty well.
My SJ is a Long wheel-base and the sills are not available. I elected to buy two sets for each side so that the welder could cut them in two and make one long one for each side.
Similarly the boot floor has had to be cut and used to patch the floor rather than replace it in one section; however the welder is happy that it is pretty 'true' to the original.
Where the Germans get them from is beyond me.
The two front wings are complete including Inner wings, Headlamp mounts and all sorts of other bits (I think it even includes washer bottle mount); whilst expensive they have saved the welding guy loads of time and so worked out cheaper in the long run.
I'm away for a couple of weeks but could possibly post some photos of what is going on with the panels when I get back (if it's necessary?).
Please let me know
Best (and Happy New Year by the way!)
Jolyon
