Happy to send them to you, providing they are returned asap.
Or measurements if you want. Yes flat plates tomorrow providing they are in the car and not on the H/top as it is in storage.

Thanks for the offer Peter i have located one locally to copy, the type with the wing nut, they were apparently reliant made because the slotted one with a knurled tightener used to "bounce loose". Could i trouble you for the measurements of the plate that fits on the b pillar. thanks

If you are struggling.
I have 2 laser profiled in stainless steel if you are interested.
No idea on price or posting costs.

You can line it with whatever you like. Use a high temperature contact adhesive though.

Hi Geraint,

You could try Harrision's Trim Supplies for a product called Veltrim.

It comes in different colours and is used on VW campers.

I plan on using this on my Portafold caravan

Regards,
Shaun

Woolies do a good range too, including West of England wool.

I can vouch for veltrim thats what i trimmed my van with. Really easy to use, and a good price.personaly I would cover the inside of the roof with something like dynamat to cut some of the booming out.

Cool brackets by the way Geraint!!!

Happy to pay upfront.
