Safari Wiper Spindles for a '58

Post by kerbkrawler »

Have been looking for a decent supplier of the above, so far can only find Heritage Click Here that is a good price. Anyone found them anywhere else?

They're coming down in price! Paid a lot more than that for those a while back. They work far nicer than the later bus designs.

They look about the same as the ones I got. I assume they came from the same fabricator.

If so, they work great and far better than the external type. KK are still selling the same things for £150

Mine turned up in 8 days, I was PMing him on The Samba and he was fine. His feedback is a bit up and down though...
