Need nose section for S3 or molds for same

PostPost by: brettengelaz » Sat Feb 16, 2013 4:33 pm

I had a shunt last weekend and caved in the left front between the bonnet opening and the bumper, thankfully no other damage. Now I'm looking for either a replacement panel or access to a mold to make a panel... Yes, I should have made molds from the car before this .. mea culpa!

I'm located in Phoenix, AZ and could drive to CA if that helps...

They have molds for most old Lotus body panels. It's a mom & pop operation, they weren't born yesterday, and they aren't fond of computers... they have no website. But call 'em, and they're pleasant to talk with. They keep late hours, and are usually in the shop from 3:00 PM to 3:00 AM. Tell them just how much of a repair panel you need, and they'll probably lay-up just that much for you. Prices are reasonable.
