I've only ever seen this sticker on later cars; did the early ones have them? Does Len's car wear one?

The top one has an earlier version of the logo, but the bottom one has the correct clearance for spark plug gap...

What clips do you lack, I have various here...?

Thanks for the offer of clips guys, we seem to be sorted with something from good old Halfords!

One of the new ones will probably be green, very green.
Another new one is green too but not as green as the previous one. Still pretty green.
The other new one will be white with stripes. Actually it might not. No, it will be.
BUT, that one is definitely Yellow :=}

Martrim are only in Sandbach so not far, never been though. Alternatively I have also used a nr identical product from Wayside adhesives online. The stuff you want is the high heat stuff ideally. They'll be at Tatton too I imagine, though of course you want everything done for then. I should be along one of the days, not sure which at this stage and I look forward to seeing VA6.

The top of those 2 stickers also has the valve clearance wrong. Its a typo but reads 0.008" instead of 0.018". The metric equiv is ok though.
