Wow, car was looking fantastic. Engine bay is a work of art. Feel for you, but pretty fortunate overall. That must be the worlds smallest deer to only take out the splitter :)
It was basically Bambi Will 🙈
I pushed it down the road a bit before I went over it.
Fortunately the drivers light bracket that attaches to the crash box snapped at the thread so the list was

1 x drivers light (although it’s fine actually)
1 x bracket/grille
Fibreglass repairs and paint

The heated windscreen needed replacing so that’s been done while the clams off. New front tow post too.

So today I had the front clam recoated in Siramik Diamas so the car is back to good health.

Boyd works out of GT101 who specialise in Ford GT’s; and on the way home from having the front clam ceramic coated I popped in on Clive 👍

Visiting Clive is a special event.

I had such a great time visiting him last November. A true real gentleman and enthusiast and racer. I was mortified that he insisted on washing my Evira despite my fervant protests! What a man. What a garage! 😎😎👍🏻

Absolutely Pierre. Didn’t know me from Adam; some random Havaiana’s wearing dude rocking up at your house. So welcoming and a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes talking cars and life. I’ll have to go back for my car wash I think 🤔😄
