No, that's all that's left of the car that rear-ended it.

I doubt finding spares for it would be either cheap nor easy.

Re: Poor SZ

That damage, is a little bit more than just glass fibre. By the look of the pictures, the door shuts are out. Now, if you really want to get the Isopon and matting out, and just buff up the paintwork a little, then carry on. I would suggest that this is a "wonky" car, very far removed from a high performance vehicle.

Re: Poor SZ

Agree. Pulldozer, Jigging job. Quite a lot of work, but if you have the skills, inclination, and of course access to the equipment, a rewarding challenge. Fibre Glass Fred, down this way, would sort the matting. Retired now, but he used to repair the Big Reds, which suffered quite frequent damage, believe it or not.:

Re: Poor SZ

Regardless, that car's still got 1000 of headlamps, 1200+ of windscreen, and the bonnet, airdam, doors and interior look fine, so there's still money in it.

And although it's sad to see one go, it increases the spares stock. Every cloud, etc.

Re: Poor SZ

At first I thought "£3k for an SZ?! Might be worth a punt" Then I scrolled down :'(

Yes, it disappeared from the auction site after a few hours, with 5 (I think) days still to go. Last I saw it was at £3050. Not sure what's happened to it.
