Default Front body damage

My car took a hit on the left front and took the corner off. I have the pieces and I know that it’s possible to fix it. I am thinking about ordering a new front 1/2 of the body that stops somewhere in the door jam. I am curious if anyone else has removed and replaced theirs. If I replace it I might do a color change. I think the SPF is the same body but I could be wrong. I will make a few calls tomorrow and see what is available and what will need to come from South Africa. Thank you for your help and patience with a new member and longtime fan. This is a project for my Son and I. He needs to learn how to drive a stick and this car should be perfect! Lol I have chassis CSX48xx

Unless something has recently changed, the regular Superformance branded replica body is different and will not be a match. Good luck with the repairs.

I think the front should be easier than the rear but I have only started the tear down. Would the floor need to be removed to get the front off?

Depends upon how it is attached.
Most likely the floor, drill out rivots, then it comes out.
For the front clip yes I imagine to get the seems right on rocker.
If its just front fender nope, you should be good.

I have been looking for the Mocal 19 row 235mm oil cooler in silver and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I called BAT a few days ago and asked if he had it in silver. He said he would have to check with Mocal. I got a call a few minutes ago and he said that they have it and it can be on their next shipment from England in 2 to 3 weeks. So I got that going for me. Lol I want to start it so bad. I was barely bumping the starter the other night and it fired up with zero effort. Scared me a little bit and I immediately shut it off. Sounded strong for that full second it ran.

Would anyone know how to get a glove box key? I google searched 071 that was on the cylinder but I didnít have any luck. I think that key will fit the trunk also

4000 body is unique.. no other brand has the 'same' shape that I know of. Repair parts could be had if you know a guy that knows a guy.

For the glove box. 3000's didn't have lockable glove boxes. You can find the correct enough handle for it on certain 427 parts sites. Otherwise, 289's used an Aston Martin handle which was lockable.

You are in Vegas, I presume you have already hit up SAI to see if they may have what you need? No sense turning to south africa, when the home office is there.

Tony guided me to Hillbank or Superformance the only distributor of their parts. I know a guy that knows a guy and I will have a much better end result. My car is not that bad I removed a few bent brackets and stuff is falling into place. Funny, I have collected keys over the last 30 years and I took them all out to see if I had something that worked. 1st key I tried was capable of starting it. It was a gas cap key. I wish I could see an ignition key from someone. I guess biggest theft deterrent is nobody can drive a stick! Lol

This is where I am at. I got the pedal box bracket cut out and everything went back together without much effort. Pedal box still needs to move 5/8Ē and it should be perfect. 3/4Ē tube that attaches to the body needs 13Ē replaced. I should have a really nice CSX for 60K

Call a locksmith to come out and unlock the glovebox and make you some keys.
About $50 in Okla City.

Thatís like a 450.00 deal here and nobody knows how to do anymore. They want to program your keys. I need to find a real locksmith before he passes away

This guy should be able to help you with your key issues, especially if you are using vintage Lucas type locks or ignition switches like the originals:

Awesome.. thank you. I talked to old guy that works at Ace Hardware and asked him about keys being made off of cylinders. He said there is a locksmith in town that will still make keys for your locks. I donít know how many keys I should have because I didnít get any with my car. I would think that hood, trunk and glove box should be the same. I ordered a MG ignition removal tool today.

I installed new air filter today. I had to get a longer bolt. I went with a K&N and Iím not crazy about it. I think I had a foam filter because I had an inner and outer perforated liner.

Exclamation Well,...

if you are using your phone, you will need to turn them 90 degrees before you upload them. I have had similar issues in the past. Perhaps some guys here have a quicker solution...

Yes, I get it! It is in your photo viewer app... look for an edit function, then you can rotate it to make it work with this decrepit, old website.
