esprit front wheel arch repair?

Recommended Posts

I had the misfortune today to have a van with a trailer side swipe my Esprit.
It has caused damage to front wheel arch.  Driver did not stop but when i eventually caught up with him I was threatened with a brick in the face and told my car was a piece of scrap.  Police informed, but still need repairs done.  Insurance will be involved.  Has anyone had anything similar before and if so how was it repaired?

The irony was I was driving home after having the cam belt changed and MOT after lockdown.   Was looking forward to enjoying it this summer.

Any advice on repairs appreciated.

Sorry to hear and see the damage Peter. Even more annoying to hear the reaction from the low life who caused it.

Hope you get it sorted in time for the summer

Looking for my first Lotus - A Giugiaro design Turbo Esprit - Message me if you know of one or considering selling yours

Paul Matty is in Bromsgrove, been a Lotus specialist for many years, although I think he outsources body work repairs. :thumbup:

Yes, to Frank at Option One - see earlier post 😀
