Scimitar only, I’m afraid. Nothing else seems to have the right angle.

anyone bought any recently ?

worried that QRG are not always supply OE spec stuff.... although it does not matter that much they have just tried to sell me twin jet Mini washer jets, but slightly more concerned if they sell me the wrong angle bezels that i could have got for a fraction of the price on Ebay !

I needed new outers, and made them from aluminium bar stock, with a gasket against the body. Drill the bar, and cut at the right angle with a hacksaw - finish with a file. Works just fine, and looks indistinguishable from OE.

Rubber door stops work as well and they can be cut down to shape. make sure you buy solid ones not the airy type.

Geert van Hout had some remanufactured a few years ago - I bought several pairs in so we could share postage costs. Were they from that group buy, Mike?

Lotus Elan +2 or Classic Capri may share this part.

If anyone has got the dimensions or a drawing I may be able to make them.

Didn’t Windy travel this path only to find the angles were out

I bought mine from QRG at Curbs last year, only couple of quid each, also available from that well known internet auction site
