Thicker grommets

Thanks, a lot of useful suggestions. Think I'll go with the multi-size ones from cbs, they'll save a bit of measuring!!

Thicker grommets

I'd like to renew the wiring grommets around the engine bay but I can't find any with a groove round the outside wide enough to take a GRP panel. All I've found are designed for 1mm or so metal. Does anyone know a supplier?
Thanks
Alex.

Think the long plate goes on the transmission tunnel beside the front seat, should be one each side. No idea what they're for though!!

Practical Classics did a booklet about "Scimitar Restoration" which has a section on GRP repairing. Sure I've seen it on a popular auction site.

Just so you know what to look for the brackets for the B post are 17 and 18 on the drawing. The flat plates are screwed to the inside of the front of the hardtop and pull it against the b post.

Part 15 is a hook which goes into bracket 39 on the body and is fixed by the thumbscrew. My one has a slightly different arrangement, the hook has a thread on the top and a wingnut which can pull the whole thing down tight on to the body.

The seat base is held by 2 screws on the floor in front beside the seat belt reels. You'll probably find a large hole in the sill behind the front wheel which lets the water in to rot the kick panels. I've plugged mine. Also besides the usual leaky places there is a hole under each side window which...

1982 GTC project gumtree

I'm going to the workshop tomorrow so I'll ask if any cracks were found under the paint. No mention so far. Where I had to do repairs, as on the bootlid where a luggage rack had been, or to fill the holes for an old aerial and door mirrors, my standard practice is 2 layers of mat underneath and one ...
