Plastic nuts


Recommended Posts

I'm going to try and replace all teh cracked plastic nut inserts found all around the bulkhead and engine bay. Does anyone know where I can find a large qty of these. The local supplier here in Abu Dhabi has a very limited amount.

I will be going to Italy in Sept. so I can always get them shipped there before coming back here.

Thanks,

T

Do you mean the small square plastic inserts...about 13mm square with a small hole for self tappers?

Sharjah..BMW road...or my workshop! If I'm correct...how many do you need.

Hey Streaky,

Yes they are the the square ones, both large and small, very few have cracked on removal, and since I'm stripping and repainting the bulkhead, I thought I would replace them.

Primarily the one's in the footwells, and eng. bay! Thought I would just buy them all new if need be.

Where in Sharjah? Is there a supplier or do you get them from the wreckers?

Thanks,

T

Best bet is to take a few samples with you and tromp the length of BMW road. The best Rover spares place is 'Gulf Stars' 06 5339600. Talk to Suneel...he's always helpfull and very knowledgable.

Failing that....

All up and down BMW road are little automotive shops selling everything for older cars. It's not a breakers yard...but it could easily be mistaken for one!...you know what Sharjah is like!

Nut lokut (large that holds floor plates down and inner wings) RTC3744

Nut lokut (small to retain dash) RTC3745

I've bought them from UK dealers and independents in the past so maybe that's an option. They are light enough to ship in a small jiffy bag.

I bought a load from paddocks, they're not expensive.

Thanks Guys,

I'll have to check out BMW road in Sharjah, I've only heard of Mitsubishi rd (where all the wreckers are I believe). Need to make a trip to Sharjah, check it all out. Musaffah but bigger :lol: I bought up what Gulf Stars had a while ago (8), There is an Allmakes 4x4 here now, I believe there is one in Sharjah too!

I'm off to Italy in a few weeks for work so I'm thinking of placing a order with Paddocks for a bunch of parts, then bringing them back here.

The p#'s help, I'm just trying to get my microcat working, should help.

Hey Streaky see any truck cab back wall/windows up in Sharjah, or a hood (bonnet)?

Cheers,

T

Oooohh.... I gave away a complete set for a 90 last year...minus the roof. Fat Ishmail will have...but at a price! Bonnets no problem.

Do I take it that you want to turn your single cab 110 into a 110 County? You might need to take a trip around to Sami's in Rashidiya. He's the guy that buy's up all the Omani Millitary 110 Hi-cap pick-ups and turns them into the blingers that you see driving around Dubai.

Let me see what I can find around.

Regards.

Ouch,

Actually, I'm just looking for the curved corner/back lower from a truck cab and a 90 Roof.

My beast is a Double cab, the mod they did cut off the top of the rear door, moved it back, fabricated a rear lower bulkhead, then chopped the roof back, not pretty but very functional.

I guess they would be a pretty price if he's converting all the former Omani veh.

A little of topic, The goal is to have my beast done for the offical "coming out of the shed" party Nov.30. Just needs to meet Registration criteria... :lol:

Currently, The bet is for 2 flats of beer if it's not done, by me, if it is, it's 2 flats if it is by other guys (just to start of course).

Will be a good night by all B) , Neil and yourself should come down!

Also, We are planning the 2nd annual "Pre-Ramadan Porkfest" Braai Sept.7, will keep Neil posted.

Cheers,

T

I'm heading down to Al-Daid at the weekend and will pop into a few of the breakers yards there. Last time around there was a 130 twin cab being scrapped and an old Land Rover fire engine amoungst others.

My mate Othman has 52 land Rovers at last count and a couple that he uses for doner vehicles....I'll pop in to see him at the farm whilst I'm at it.

Thanks for the invite...make sure to send details to Neil please.
