Sorry to hear about your off track experience. I just saw an Elise being fitted with a new Clam and they said it cost $2000. So yes maybe a repair is is order.
I say that because I also have some small damage at the spoiler and front bottom grill area. A car a head of me on the interstate swerved and a big truck tire was in my way and I could not avoid it. Hit in the middle versus driving over it, which was the better choice.
I am thinking of a repair since the front bumper area is part of the whole front end clam. The parts are about $2k plus labor and paint. Probably a $3-3.5k job. That is alot just for my minor damage. I am going to a good import body shop for an estimate. I would think any GOOD shop can do it, especially ones with Corvette experience.
