Hello there !! I shall be escaping this "open prison" paradise imminently,
and heading down to the Wet Country, so will try and fit in a diversion to
the sunny north Devon climes to catch up on things, hopefully.
If I come in a Camaro, will you turn me away ??? :mrgreen:

Hi there Chicago tigerguy - I have quite a few spare knurled 4BA nuts on old Rootes instruments, both here in the West Indies ( due south of you!) and back in the UK.
Let me know a mailing address, and I'll pop one in the post to you, ok.
- and maybe my friend in Devon would like some too ? :D
