PostPost by: jkatthehelm » Sat Jul 11, 2020 11:44 am

Hi all
Am recommissioning an Plus’s, some parts fro which have been misplaced; Does anyone out there have a rear view mirror they would be willing to sell before I resort to some NOS ones on eBay?
Thanks!

Seems I also need the bonnet stay if anyone can help.

Also, does anyone know how the rear number plate should be mounted on the concave panel?
Thanks!

Screws through plastic spacers. Mine were on the edges of the plate, centrally located hight wise.

My plate was fitted from the dealer with 2 screws on the centre line of the plate between the 1st and 2nd letters and the 6th and 7th. The spacers are rubber. I think they are re purposed anti roll/diff bar bushes.

Best regards
Mark

Thanks all, anyone have a photo of the spacers? Should be easy to fabricate!
Cheers
