Folding Hood Frame Screws

Post by Ruabon Red »

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help...

Do you know where I could source spare screws for the folding frame as indicated below?

I have two missing ones so finally understand where the annoying rattle was coming from! :D
Many thanks in anticipation

Might be worth speaking to MGB Hive as i see they have various screws under their fixings section. I don't recall seeing them listed as separate items elsewhere. If you can remove one of the remaining ones , that would enable you to determine head profile, length, diameter , thread (UNF or UNC etc.). Most threads on the MGB are UNF although there are some notable exceptions.
No doubt breakers such as "Welsh MG" could probably assist.

I've got an old frame from a 1980 car that I don't need. Not sure if it has the same screws but I can have a look.
