WTB - engine cover & rear bumper
« on: Tuesday,October 03, 2017, 12:28:35 AM »
Hi,

I’m looking for:
an engine cover for an S1 - not sure if these differ from later models?
a rear bumper

(I’m in the South West UK)

Thanks,

Mark

A genuine rear cover for an S1 is heavier, stronger and fits better that an S2 cover but they are otherwise the same.

The car was intact when it was collected, unfortunately somebody between the US and UK ports decided the original engine cover had survived long enough and tore parts of it off...
I could look into repairing the remains?

Maybe someone else's damaged cover could provide repair sections or take molds from a good cover.

I am in Norfolk with a spare rear bumper and a spare TCS engine cover (2 vents).

Hello Alex,

I’m definitely interested in both, the extra vents should be added/cut in easily enough?

regards,

Mark
