Re: Brads Tiger

Gun very similar to the sealey one I have used for years.i always used to drill extra drain holes.3 in the cills,1 at bottom of front wing and 1 in the front end of the rear wing.just so that any water that gets in there can drain out.i also used to inject wax oil thro these holes.

Re: wheel studs

Sunbeam spares used to stock them,to fit them you will have to remove hub or drill holes in back plate.holes in hub will also need drilling.

Re: Hardtops How much?

Hi Gary,I would have thought for a very good hardtop,no rot,very minimal filler if it’s had metal work done,all seals present,good Perspex and decent paint it would be £1k at least,maybe a bit more.any hardtop that has had repairs I would want to try it on my car to check out fit.regds
