I'd start with the driver's side (as that's the biggest area of distortion) and work my way over.

You will ideally need a small block of rounded wood to act as a wedge for the deep kink on the passenger side.

Really, you need to heat the plastic to the point whereby your fingers on the other side of the plastic start to get uncomfortable (but before the paint starts burning), then reshape the plastic, and hold it in place as the plastic cools & hardens.

The loose parts, I would either remove entirely (they don't appear to serve any real purpose), or would melt a hole into each and cable-tie it into position.


Cheers. I did say cable ties to the OH but he was like NO.....Hes a bike man not a car man. Should have some blocks of rounded wood...if not will have something in the garage.

Back to searching for a lower front grille. Any idea where I could get the p/n for it? I think my dads still got a dingbro card if all else fails will have to try them for a replacement.

Am I right in thinking that for an MOT pass it just had to have no sharp edges that could harm a pedestrian should I hit them?

I don't know about part numbers, but regarding the mot, I'd believe that as long as no sharp edges, moving parts or hot surfaces are present, then it should be fine.

If you are stuck, and you have the Tiger Seal, you could be inventive and use this;
