The bumper is getting replaced yes, but the nosecone is perfectly okay (despite what the pics above appear to show) - the plastic and duct tape was purely a plaster over the smashed lens to get me up to RATS.

Lee: Looking ace, and loving the pics :) Lord knows what had made a nest in there, surprised it never caught fire the way I rag that engine.
