Fog Light Pedestal

All,
Gosh, I cannot type well. Looking to borrow a set of fog light pedestals so I can have some made by a good friend of mine. Kinda like Bob Teets did.

Rob

Jon, please delete my other thread with the bad subject title.

I have a pair. PM your address, and I'll mail them (after the holiday weekend). Don't forget the 'O' ring that mounts on the bottom, and the spacers that go beneath the wide grill molding.

Neil,
No need to pm for me. Please send the o-ring and spacers with them.

My address is:
Rob Campbell
3235 N. E. Fischer Court
Bremerton WA 98310

Fog Light Pedestal

To me the spacer I received looked like a grommet cut in half.
I said damn I paid for that, I could’ve made that myself.

All,
This is the first part I have made. The original is in the center of the picture courtesy of Steve Wick. The ones I made are on the left and right. I have enough of these for 12 sets of four each for a GT/CS/HCS. These are the washers that reinforce the grill to allow for the Lucas light to mount and be stable. I have the nuts and pedestals under manufacture as we speak. With correct British national fine threads. I plan to offer a complete kit consisting of four washers, two pedestals, two nuts, two grommets, and two star lock washers. This will be a kit for one car.

As with these washers, the nuts and pedestals will be exact reproductions that should easily pass the smell test of any MCA judge. I would offer that if you send me your bare Lucas light body, I will chase the treads on the mounting studs to ensure perfect bind free tightening of your fog lights.

More later after I get the pedestals and nuts finished. And then I can send Marty, Neil, and Steve back their parts!! Thanks guys for sending me the parts to ensure I get them correct!!

Rob

Marty,
It has been a fun project! To duplicate unavailable parts for the GT-CS/HCS hobby!

For anyone that is interested I reproduce the parts based on Bob Teet’s originals. I have a number of sets in stock. Thanks.

I'd be interested in one of your stripe kits for a CS in black. Also Can I buy just the grommets/spacers? Nice work. Finally some quality parts I can buy that will work just like the originals if not better!
