Headlamp peaks
« on: 01.04. 2011 16:07 »
Hi

Does anyone know if the chrome headlamp peaks are still available, preferably in the UK. I have tried Goffy but he does not stock them or knows anyone who does.

Thanks

Thanks Goldie - never even thought to check ebay. They have some stainless Mini ones sold in pairs though - I guess I will have to buy another A10 to use the other one  *smile*

Thanks Rich - good to see you back on the forum. It looks like they supply single peaks rather than in pairs so it will save me having to buy another A10 to use the spare peak  *smile*

Sorry if I have ruined your excuse for getting another A10!

That's OK Richard - SWMBO wouldn't let me get another one anyway as the one I have is keeping me away from "more important" jobs like tiling the bathroom and cutting the grass etc etc.......   *cry*
