Last weekend I had some unplanned contact with the armco at Croft. It was the rear of the car that took the impact. The damage is not structural (it could have been much worse) but unfortunately the rear clam is a write off. I enquired with Lotus who tell me that a new clam is about ï¿½2k excl paint and labour.
Does anyone have suggestions where I can source a rear clam cheaper, new or used? It’s unlikely, but maybe there’s someone with an unused rear clam sitting in the garage? I tried eliseparts but the one they advertise on the website is now sold. My dealer suggested going for a motorsport clam which he thought may be cheaper (but as far as I know, the two aren’t interchangeable when it comes to fitting of engine cover, spoiler etc).
Any ideas are welcome.
