    Drill and plug usually works.

    IMPORTANT DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRILL THRU LEATHER/VINYL PANEL!!!!

    Experience is a good teacher.

    Also look to Tractor dealers for old Ferguson or Ford Tractors. They used Lucas distributors DK4Y in some without vac advance.

    Drill out and plug is the best solution. I have been using Urethane glue/ Moisten the plug slightly and the drilled area on the body. Put urethane glue on the plug, insert and clamp with wax paper under the clamp surface.

    Urethane glue expands as it cures, so the next day you may have to trim the surface flat. You will end up with a rot-proof, waterproof repair.

    I found an old photo of my car with the 'eyes' just about visible.

  • D Stanfield19 September 2019

    Heading for the ferry to Dublin a bit after lunchtime yesterday (18th), about 25 or so miles from Cherbourg I passed a small convoy of nice sprites/midgets, led by a very nice frogeye in BRG.
    Cheery waves all round, though I was driving my modern car so obviously very jealous.
    Anyone on here been enjoying the French sunshine?

    I don't know only thinking, perhaps BMC/BL were being unusually considered about exporting and these were part of the 'packaging' used.

  • Bob Beaumont19 September 2019

    Yep agree with Dave and Jeremy. Wipers park on drivers side.

    Stuart,
    are you, your Spridget, rev counter, speedo or GPS device cider drinkers by any chance(?). :)

    If your GPS is a free "App" on a phone it's refresh rate could make it inaccurate. One of the best examples of an oxymoron I can think of is a "smart-phone". I'm sure these and Alphabet/Google, Microrsh*t and Amozonion will lead us to the end of the world sooner than later.

    I can't find a reference to them in any parts books. I think I read somewhere that they were fitted to export models and (supposed to be) removed at PDI, but I might be making that up!

    I've had a look for images on the web and finally found this one, where they are just visible. (Pic courtesy of historicmotorsports.net)
