Help!

Had an incident last night, due to my car running on slightly dubious rubber (old pirelli cinturato's) I had a blow out on a round about, resulting in my car (72 elan sprint) sliding in to the kerb at the side of the road slightly quicker than desirable.

Total damage..............N/S Chapman Strut cracked, N/S rear wishbone Damaged, 2 wheels destroyed, Wishbone to Chassis mounts slightly misaligned and some fibreglass damage (not much).

Well iv repaired the fibre glass this morning, and I'm just about to go and collect 2 new wheels, there is a chapman strut on Ebay, but no wishbones, Please has anyone got a spare N/S wishbone they can let me have? I am very very desperate, (obviously will pay) Also need a wheel embelisher as one of mine dissapeared in the accident.

If anyone has a chapman strut and a wish bone i will cheerfully take both off your hands, as I'm desperate to get this done asap.

Please please help me!

Spyder make upper and lower wishbones and a fabricated chapman strut. Not cheap but mighty fine. I've got them on my +2 :D :D

Have a look at their website, they are shown there for the +2 and the Elan.

Just checked Spyder's site on the web.

Go to http://www.spydercars.co.uk/pg3_spy_tub ... shbone.htm. You'll see Elan wiskbones there. :)

There is a good N/S Issue 18 Chapman strut on eBay.uk right now. Closes in about 3 hours but it is only at 20 pounds as I right this. It is item number 4580193828. Good luck
