J van grille chrome

The Register has organised the manufacture of a small batch of the chrome hoops for the grille panel of a J-type. We have not so far managed to organise the remanufacture of the centre strip, but enquiries are ongoing. The hoops are made from chrome-plated brass to the correct section. Having such a limited market, it is unlikely we will be having more made once these have been sold. The cost for the left-hand and right-hand hoops is £80 for the pair, plus post/packing which is yet to be established.

They are difficult items to package, so it would be preferred if members/purchasers might pay and reserve a set and collect them at the Classic Van and Pick-up Show at Gaydon (Sunday August 6th) or at the NEC show (10th-12th November) where we will have a stand in Hall 3. Otherwise, by prior arrangement they could be picked up from Register HQ in Moseley, Birmingham.

The Classic Van and Pick-up Show will be only the second outing for 5003 NX with its new paint finish. We are hoping to change the wheel colour to silver, but so many other things are getting in the way at the moment!
