Default sources for body sheetmetal?

Racing with the Pro-3 bmw group is getting a little rough. Nothing "Pro" about the driving. This last contact happened when a driver pulled a hero stunt and tried to hang three wide on the first lap... then spun like a top... Does anyone have a good source for bumper covers and sheet metal?

Next race is coming up next weekend...

I have an extra 99 bumper. It will "fit", but will not work with 01+ headlights.

Otherwise, there is some Oregan shop that Nial talks about, I think its called Adrenaline racing.

Yes, thank you. Mazdaspeed motorsports did offer a sizable discount for racers. I think that a fender is 150; hood 450 and a bumper cover 250. Pick and pull had a light. I'll also be needing a new intercooler and charge pipes.

I'm going to fab up a sturdy nerf bar if I'm going to run in this BMW group. They refer to a miata as a "pinata" and treat you the same. Word in the pits is were really put off by a lowly mazda passing them. I didn't mind the bump drafting. The "t-6 squeeze" that tire striped both doors was kind of a cheap shot. But, the guy who did the late braking "hero pass" on the first corner after the green, spun and gathered me up... that was just a rookie move. Fitting: his name was Dick.

Can't get the parts by the SCCA event this week-end, so looking at Memorial day at ORP. Why don't one of you Southern coast hot-shoes come up and clean the field? The track is exciting and technical... and I could use a little help reeling in this large group. I'll buy you lunch and will even provide "bug and tar remover" to buff off the tire marks!

Yeah. Don't replace all the panels with brand new. Bang back into shape and 100mph tape it. That will really cheese the BMW guys off when they get passed.
