    Hi everyone

    The assessor has said our vehicle is repairable.

    Anyone know of good places to get the rarer talbot express parts from.

    Many thanks

    Good news, so isn't it up to your insurers to find the parts ?

    Or bad news ? If they wrote it off, you buy back for peanuts and fix it yourself for peanuts. I'd even suggest a hand made DIY front that no-one would want to steal.

    No they wont write it off and under some special terms apparently garages only have a certain amount of time to repair a vehicle otherwise the insurance company just pays us money to get it repaired.

    We are due away very soon so trying to get the bits very quickly.

    many thanks xxx

    Try no1gear.com they were really helpful when I had my old Talbot. When they didn't have a part - which was unusual - they told me which other places to try.
    Good luck with the repairs.

    :BigGrin:There would appear to be a cosiderable chink of light at the end of this tunnel.

    Hope you get it done in time.:thumb:
