Overview
Brand new stainless steel front frame extension. Hand made in Norfolk, UK (close to the Lotus factory).

Made to OEM specifications and sizes, but with thicker stainless steel used in the weaker areas to improve the structure, and made with a better and more rigid design with solid welds, rather than the original part which was made from spot-welded plates. It is still designed to crumple on impact, but the thicker stainless steel used around the anti-roll / sway bar mounting points means the recall plates are not required (although leave them on if you have them anyway).

This part needs to be welded on, and as such a little extra material has been left on the 2 top pieces to give you options on how to attach it.

Also available in steel.

These newly made front ends will need to be welded to your existing chassis crossmember, exactly where the old one will be removed from, assuming you're replacing entire thing. The upper panels are an extra 20mm long to allow for an optional cut, as the chassis cross member isn't square - the top has a radius (see pictures of an old cut-off one). This extra 20mm will have to be shaped to suit if you fit it back here. Alternatively you can cut it square off the chassis in line with where the bottom joins and then remove the additional 20mm that's been added to the new part to allow for a square fit.
The front end shouldn't require much to get it to line up with the old cut-off points, but from experience as the old parts of the chassis are cut, they can spring back to a neutral position, or can warp depending on how rusty/rotten it has become.

Also available in steel.
