The short answer Dan is no. I bought my last rear arch repair panel from Rimmers and it was a very good fit.

By the time I located the folk who now own the press tools for the arch panels they had already re-stocked Rimmers. At the price offered to me we could have undercut Rimmers price by a small margin and of course no VAT buy I saw two down sides to this: 1. Potentially upsetting Rimmers who might then be less inclined to support the Dolomite/the Club and 2. The minimum order the tool holders would accept was 30 pairs which is a not inconsiderable sum and also a large quantity of metal to store.

Are the 1850 alloy carb mounts in stock at all?
My home made ones are now getting too irritating for me to deal with any longer!

Yes, they are in stock.
I have a set on my 1850, they really are a superb investment.
As well as not having to worry about leaks, there is no need to support the airbox. Well I don't!
£81.99, but ONE standard carb mount from a well known supplier was £32.95 inc shipping! :D

I don't always check this thread, so it's always best to send spares enquiries to spares@triumphdolomiteclub.com

The latest Dolly Mixture came through the letterbox today so I've just updated the stainless exhaust prices.

Are the steering racks in stock? And are there instructions for the exchange, i.e. where's the old 'un got to go to, and is there a preferred courier?

I suggest you PM xvivalve (Alun) directly, Graham.
He not only handles sales but also organises the rebuilding......

I'm on the verge of joining.
I like the idea of receiving a regular magazine and I like what I see in the list of parts the club has. But I'm wondering just what the "regalia" is that is referred to in the "How to join" thread. Shirts, hats, jackets, patches, that sort of thing, I suppose.
Does the club have any way of distinguishing a members car?......sticker/decal.......or whatever you call them in the UK?
Cheers,
Rob

There is a TDC screen sticker, about the size and shape of the old fashioned dealer stickers that used to adorn the lower rear screen of new cars - which I have chosen to display in the front! It fills the sun gap between the visors!

And yes, regalia is T shirts, hats, jackets stickers, mugs and WHY.

The stainless exhausts are back into production so I've just updated the price list which now includes the Sprint.
