I am in the process of restoring the above car. We have now got to the wheels, the front compromotives are badly pitted but can not find any replacements. We have come up with a solution to fit  Image Wheels rims , not right but any port in a storm. We now require a complete set of aluminium hat spreader washers .I have seen them mentioned on the forum in the compromotive rebuild section but do not know who had them made, can any help please.

Welcome Dave. Whereabouts are you?

You'll need to post some pictures.

I'm a BBS man myself, so can't help you with the comps.

Oh and did I mention the pictures :)

Pics please. Jo Chan had the washers made up which were very slightly thicker than the originals to make them stronger. I believe I still have some spare that I could sell. I'll have a look around the garage and check to see what quantity I have left.

Would be really good to see the image wheels on it. After the comps and the bbs’s it’s probably the next best thing out there to stay with the concept.
