No Longer Req'd : Headlamp bowls / adjusters 5 3/4 " 5.75

Post by 1969SE5 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 12:35 am

Hi All

as per my other post, currently stripping down the old girl for paint, and found a few bits that i had thought OK, are not so good...

all 4 of my headlamp bowls / adjusters are rotten, and i reckon beyond salvage.

Would anyone one have some spares kicking around that i could buy please ?

Many thanks, please PM me

cheers

David.

I think I bought new ones made from plastic instead of steel?

they would be perfect, but the budget is not having pockets that deep, with VAT and carriage, another £100 gone :(

Welcome to my world! I have spent a lot of money on mine, and I've not even looked at paint yet.

Yep - I don’t think I paid anywhere near that (may have been an NEC offer though) - but that was the first I found.

SVC (where I got some from) seem to list them at £38 per pair inc vat, which may be slightly cheaper, depending on what they charge for carriage?

I have a box full of second hand metal bowls but I’m afraid it’ll be several weeks before I’m at the workshop again to see if there’s any useable ones.

I think I’ve got some second hand ones that might be serviceable. Might be a week or so until I can sneak in to find them though.

Paddock have them at £11.40 including vat but I would think that's just the 7".
