Re: SP250 bumper mounts B type

My front bumper seems to have twin spring bars (Item #3) fitted.

Re: SP Handbrake draught excluder

The parts manual refers to a 'handbrake lever leather gaiter', with no sub-listings of components used to secure it. My original leather gaiter (replaced in 1973) has 3 screw holes along its outboard base flap w...
