Bonnet replacement..?

Hi folks, having a major headache today as some little arsehole trashed my car during the night so now I'm in need of a new bonnet!!!

Q 1 are the bonnets easy to swap out?
Q 2 how much are they to buy, 2nd hand or new as I can't find any on the web?
Q 3 would anybody like to start a lynch mob?

What to people recommend with regards to in car cameras? Are they worth the money, I work closely with the police so know how perfect footage needs to be for a prosecution for things like this.
Cheers in advance!!

Re: Bonnet replacement..?

It was raining when I was fitting the mirror (quite bad rain too) but i used the door card to shield the door ecu where the wing mirror connector is (just above the loudspeaker to the left a little).

You say it may have blown a fuse... that's raised an eye brow because i did think of this but there are some buts...

How are the doors fused? my understanding is - each door has an ECU, that controls wing mirror and electric window and the pressure stopper and also central locking - if im right, then a fuse hasnt blown as i can use the electric window and the door locks and unlocks, also the door light (red and white light) is still working...

Nightmare.
Sorry - forget to say, im not in cheltenham, im around west yorkshire, work in Heckmondwike & live in Bradford.

Re: Bonnet replacement..?

Also, forgot to mention - does the actual connector have a fuse inside it? i could see a brown tab (like mini fuse) but it was solid in colour, not transparent like most fuses, will double check with old mirror tonight.
