Sorry, not something I have kicking around, but if you're going to Brooklands next Sunday then Adam might be able to help, contact him so if he has one he would bring it along. If you can't get the bracket Adam sold me mine at a really good price, I paid less than his web site price for a pair, but it was back in September 2008.

The mirrors are designed to fall off on impact to protect the main bodyshell from damage. In most cases you should be able to put them straight back on.

You have been really unlucky if the bracket has been damaged.

As for replacements, I think Andy is right - Adam Harper would be your best bet.

possibly you could replace the pins by drilling out and fitting with nylon nuts and bolts, thtway if yo hit it again it will simply snap as before.

should be able to get from RS Components or many model shops.
