I'm waiting for my stuff from Mark, so hopefully I won't have to wait too long. :)
Anyhoo, I've just had a long soak to get the fibreglass resin out of my hair - because I've fixed the Landie  :P
And an exceedingly good job it looks too - even if I do say so myself. Especially the fact that the headlamp can now sit where it's supposed to and actually works! :shock:
Does it need a bumper to be road legal as the Beamer is going in for the RTA damage work soon :?:  :cry:
cheers! 8)

yes in simple terms

or something that doesnt protrude out of the contour of the vehicle which could constitute dangerous to pedestrians.

Not had any problems with Scorpion myself, they delivered my new springs and shocks last Tuesday, took just 3 days :D

Depends what is behind it. If there are no sharp edges or other sticky out bits then you'll probably get away with it. Plenty of older cars can be and are run without bumpers.  In any case being hit by 2T of Disco is never going to be a pleasant experience.

Who is the courier? Can you get a tracking number off them? For a lot of companies you can find out where stuff is on-line. Securicor, Parcel Farce, and Target are all based at Walton Summit if you need to fetch it from them.

Ah, I presumed it was the courier from Scorpion to you.

Dyf,

FWIW/IMHO;

I have to say that I would be tempted to can Scorpion and go OME.

Sounds like its not really Scorpion at fault but Delphi for not suppling Scorpion with enough stock.

Any chance you could get a discount for the delay, maybe worth a try :wink:
