Have you crunched the bonnet so much that you cannot measure it and your mate's van?

My C70 bonnet is 153cm wide, 140cm long and about 30cm deep. My understanding is that all 70 bonnets are the same.

Yes....a truck reversed into it, but I managed to slam it into reverse quick and avoid a really nasty shunt/total write off. Needs bonnet, slam panel and a headlight. Insurance wrote it off, made me an offer, I accepted and bought it back as Salvage for 500 quid.

Sorry to hear of your bad luck, hope you get it sorted without too much hassle.
