I've got a couple of NOS ones somewhere, one at least I think is perfect. Far too good for my car.

Edit: Just rememberd I've forgotton what size they are, though I'm sure they're the earlier smaller ones.

Well, it sounds as if Graham's will be the better option for you, but from my perspective costs would be thus:

Postage: second class signed for would be £3.95 whether you have one nut or six.

Cost of nut(s): on the basis I'm letting Jon's things find their own value, it would be down to what you offered...three full sets have already been sold via the auctions, (see here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=33805)...I think I have eleven left in various states of condition, some better than others...

I have 4. Three are quite good, but appear to have been used once at least and one appears to be unused and, by my standards, considering its a wheel nut, perfect. They are far too good for spares for me. So I'll swap em for serviceable but not so pretty ones and postage.

Thanks Graham, I am not in a position to swap Wheel Nuts, I need a least one to complete my car, I have loads of the larger size later model 7/16 ones & a couple of 3/8 Steel ones, can I buy one 3/8 Alloy wheel nut from you.
Regards

Marek
