rear number plate lights

PostPost by: a d price » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:27 am

Does anybody know what size the rear number plate lamp screws are for a 1969 s4 elan and a supplier of stainless new ones. Mine are very rusty

No idea if it's original or not but mine are fixed with No 6 self tappers direct into the fibreglass. There is access to the rear of the lamp through slots in the inner skin of the boot lid - albeit a bit fiddly - so you could use screws with nuts and washers if you prefer - 5 BA or M3 should do it.

Stainless self tappers are widely available from the likes of these people......http://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk/TappingScrew.html
