Hi all,

 

Having just removed the front clam I see that the fog light brackets have rusted badly, to the point where the nearside one is partly missing!

 

Anybody know whether these are obtainable. I have tried the elise-shop/parts but no joy. Maybe get them made up by engineering firm? 

 

By the way, can't believe the difficulty in removing the various fixing bolts to the front clam. Many rusted/seized - going to be a long job.

 

Happy New Year.

 

Robert

Consider it a tuning advantage, your car is now lighter!
