Nothing slows down a restoration more than those fiddly little fasteners, fixings and grommets that hold everything together. It is difficult to identify exactly what fixings are needed from the outset as many will be broken, corroded or missing altogether from your project. Marque specific part vendors drawings can also be quite vague on what is needed as even the original factory drawings used tend to be the overall schematics rather than detail drawings that showed the fasteners or grommets. As you reassemble your project you come across hurdles where you need that clip or pin or grommet and have to source it, order it and await arrival. Buying fixings one at a time ad hoc can also be an expensive route, shipping and handling makes up more of the purchase price than the item itself. Therefore we’ve come up with reasonably sized packs of popular items that can take weeks off a build - hit a hurdle, select a solution from your packs of clips/fasteners/grommets and carry on.
We’ve also got one or two specialised fixings that improve upon what was on the original vehicle. For instance, our Stainless MGB door hinge bolts overcome major issues with the original items, which you are unlikely to be able to remove intact.
