My car had a close encounter with a Volvo in the village yesterday it was parked at the side of the road and pulled out on me as I passed it hit the nearside wheel arch.

I need a new one but as BWE are no longer in business I will have to buy a matching pair from another type of Seven.

Has anyone any recomendations, is anyone using wings from a non Locust manufacturer?

Thanks Brian, but talking to the insurance folks it looks like they will be opting for a new pair of wings and stone guards. Hopefully the Green Gel Coat finish suppliers use is the same I think mine are RAL 6005. If not they will have to fund a respray of all the wings and nose cone. They had seen the Caterham ones.

I bought a pair of wings from the Scottish Kit Car Centre in BRG RAL 6005. This is actually called Moss Green. They are a great match with the originals.

The wings I got fitted quite well there was a small gap at the bottom at the rear where the Locust ones curved in a bit more but I filled that with some black silicone. I didn't like the stone guards I got from Kit Spares/Great British Sports Cars as they were a bit on the small side so I straighted out my old one and reused it. My car is 28 years old so it already has a bit of patina so it doesn't look out of place.
