Cheers paul, thats a good idea
I still have the fuel filler flap so how would you suggest I reattach that as well, do I sort of fill the hole with it in place so the filler just bonds to the cap support?

One garage suggested I cut the area from breakers clio and then they would tack it over the current body work but that sounded alot of work and I need this fix on the super cheap as I have to sort a couple of other bits out too.
