OK so if there's 4 per car and you ordered 52 (at a prorata rate from 50) it'd work out as about £25 for a set of 4. Expensive but if you're the only one who has good quality ones to sell.............................

try going to a local machine shop and asking how much to make from a bit of nylon

 

by the way, the other 4 smaller ones, the repro are rubbish, something someone has bought off the shelf thats similar but the wrong size, the rods wont sit properly with them, so you also need to get them made to original as well if your going to do it properly, these cost me about £4.50 each to have made from solid and i had 12 made 2 sets for me and one set for the trimmer

 

when you look at the shape of the bit you need, £25 a set of 4 is cheap

i no i hear the repro ones aren't great and i have the original middle ones its the dog leg ones thats the problem for me i aint got one to take anywhere to have one made as mine have gone missing if anyone has one i could loan to get some made i would really appreciate it and maybe i could help out some other folk. yeh i agree £25 is a bargain for a good fit

OK. I've found somewhere to perform a 3D scan for less than the initial £300 +VATY quote.

 

I'm sending the piece off to them today for them to scan and create a 3D model. I'll send off 1 of the 4 middle pieces too to facilitate a whole set being recreated

 

Watch this space....

 

Out of curiosity, who needs a set? I'll create a new thread to get a feel for numbers
