Oh dear, you need a garage to keep the car in.

 

Is it fibreglass?

That's D & K Automotive not DK Engineering.

 

I've always thought it was dodgy trying to park in the front garden, it's pretty tight and steep. You definitely need to find a garage for it.

Problem is there's no garages in my area or i would. I've contacted a company called BMC Bodyshop and sent some pictures so all i want now is the quote.

If I were you I'd look at sorting that front garden out properly if you plan to keep the car there all the time. Don't you have to bump the kerb to get it on there?

Looking closer it's plastic or a derivative of..... The rear clam is fiberglass and bloody heavy so maybe that's why they don't use plastic there.

try this, the Uk place seems to have moved around a bit in the Midlands. Warning website is the USA site with a Porsche Speedster:

 

DNA Automotive

info@dnaautomotive.com
www.dnaautomotive.com

and the DNA 4Thirty Spider replica based on the Ferrari 430 Spider

 

Or put a post up here ( but beware it's not a secure site ) but seems to be current:

No, but somebody may be able to recommend a place for body repairs.

 

If it's plastic then somebody who repairs plastic bumpers rather than replacing them?
