Hi Peter and welcome.

I'm in Warrington as well so might see you around once you've repaired it.

Hi Peter,
welcome from another in Warrington - hope your repair goes well. Are you replacing front clam? - can be tricky to get old one off, having just done it on my Elise motorsport project

Peter, do you have a replacement front clam?

‘Junks’ on Seloc is a good person for most parts - has this for sale just now:

Yes thanks managed to get one but thats a good price i paid £1200 for mine its slightly different round the lights on mine which is a 2008.

I could do with the two front indicators though. They seem to be about £150 each new.

Took far longer than I would have liked all back together now though. Although I always seem to have some sort of kids party or sum such every weekend so haven't had much chance to drive it again as yet.
