These came at lunchtime, ordered yesterday afternoon: quick service.
For anyone who followed my "Wanted" request for thick washers.
They fit inside the sump flange even though they are 2 mm wider.

Yes, I've had a few things from Spalding Fasteners (especially if it's something that Namrick haven't had), and they've given excellent service :D

For a bit of repair to my SAAB daily seats all the way from Hull, if this proves simple I may well follow Jim Pace's recolouring on some XJS seats I've sort of bought somehow

Quite impressed that everything you need is included including some tints just in case it doesn't quite match, just need an airgun now, suspect my HVLP spray gun mght be a tad OTT, there's enough there to repair two seats they said, seems about right I'd guess.

I was just reading a PM from gordini5 about some switch roundels he has been making for me (and posted yesterday) when the postie knocked - with the new roundels!

As standard, the writing is slightly obscured so we changed the dimensions slightly.

I also don't have a rear wiper, nor use the HRW or panel light switch and I wanted the heated seats on a period switch instead of the plastic ones they came with :-)

Not actually in the post, Biggred are only 12 miles up the road from me, so I drove up and collected them.

£139 the pair, this is their standard finish, better quality finishes available, but on a longer turn around time.

Very pleased with them ... just got to fit and bleed them now.

These arrived yesterday for the Middlebridge - I was confidently told that the studs would not break - unlike the Essex ones. Four out of the 12 did but at the nut, being thinner than the original manifolds I hope there is enough stud left to get a nut on and tight - all the breaks were in the lower studs.

That wording is classic! :lol: :lol:

Reminds me of a report I read once which said that, when interviewed by Trading Standards about the fake CE mark on his counterfeit goods, a market trader replied "Well, it's for Chinese Export, innit?" :hand:

Prefer Phil's version of supplies, does't matter if it's wet for those
