More good news – there might be a “plan B” for the Hi-Po studs / nuts for the UK / EU.
The company that makes the high performance studs for the RAM C Type Jaguar replicas says he can make our studs to the same specs as the APE items.
I have sent him the details to get a price based on 80 [ 10 x sets ]. This is the minimum quantity to get a good price.
The VERY good news is that they are manufactured here in the UK …… no silly carriage costs, no VAT and no customs duty ! That will save approximately 40% on the costs. AND they will be available to call off with a 2 week lead time.
