    New Door and Bumper needed - Ming Blue

    Well after washing the car today, I've realised I've been neglecting my car's bodywork since some twonk reversed into in twice in a fortnight.

    The bumper is split, needs a new one.





    The door, I've pushed out with a plastic mallet and a flat plate of metal. It looks a hell of a lot better than it did, but still damaged and just as effective on car's value.





    I would now like to get it back to a good condition, but to have the door repaired and a new bumper sprayed, reckon it will cost quite a bit more than buying those items from a written off vehicle.

    I've gone to 247spares, and nothing back yet. I've looked on ebay for seperate parts, and breaking cars off which to get the bits. Not exactly being in the city, there's only one breaker close to here, who's never got one in.

    Anybody work in the industry or know anybody who does who'd be kind enough to keep an eye out?

    Am i going about this the best way? Anyone think of anything I'm missing.

    Cheers
    Andy

    P.S. before anyone says what about selling and getting a newer one, I've put too much money into this one getting to the stage she's at, and have lots of fond memories times in it to let her go now.

    That was my thought when I saw it. But when i took it off, it's stretched where it was pushed in. It's split the paint where it is stretched.

    Buy yourself a bumper off ebay and you should be able to get it resprayed for £90ish too match. as for the door try some1 like http://www.dentmagic.net. Problem you will have about buying a 2nd hand bumper and door is the colour will not match due too the different conditions the cars have experienced and therefore different amounts of fade etc.
