Hi Gents
Hope you can help me, I'm after a few items and am happy to pay via Paypal or collect at Curborough if that is easier.
1, One or a pair of the original black mirror plinths in good condition as I would like to get them 3D copied. (fingers crossed)
2, Handbrake Grip. (The piece you grab to apply the handbrake) Genuine reason, I can't find my one.
3 A VGC SES6b / MB front Grille.
4, Complete interior rear light assembly in good condition.

Many thanks in advance

Mick G

Hi Mick -

I bought a brand new interior light - they're the same as fitted to the dash of an MGB.

Plenty available online, such as here... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-MG-MG ... 0005.m1851

I have one of the fibreglass mirror plinths for the drivers door - I think it probably needs a little bit of work to get it to match the profile of the door though. I bought it from GW, but never fitted it, then they had the rubber ones for sale. Not sure if you're better off sourcing a rubber one, but let me know if it's of use.

Cheers,

Mike.

GW's rubber ones are perfect - fitted them to our MB. I used a Capri interior lamp in our MB - had to file about 1mm off the hole to get it in - not a job beyond you Mick. Made my own front grill out of a kitten roof.

Hi Mike and Pete

Many thanks for the replies.
I was told that the front grill was totally unavailable but I will call Graham.
Pete, Your front Grille looks great but I think I will stick with just the four screws. :D
Mike many thanks for the MGB tip which I will take up.

Many thanks

Mick G
