I need to find someone who can bend it back into shape and weld it up - or I suppose I could cut it and reshape it prior to getting someone t weld it back together.
So: recommendations for someone in Adelaide (I'm just north of North Adelaide) who does this kind of work?
Bit of a bummer - it's been welded, but not completely fixed - don't reckon th previous owner even realised the extent of the damage :( Airbox mounting tabs are busted too - I'm quite handy with epoxy and scrap bits of plastic though :
