You could have an arts-and-crafts day and make up a spacer to go under the factory rocker cover. Ally or PTFE would do it.

Cheers,

Fitted a passenger side mirror, which is actually just another driver side stalk. Nasco lens would only point down and away from the side, so swapped to another lens wiith more articulation. ImageImage

OK Billy.

Dropped ute to exhaust shop for rectification.

One of my Sampson's has a slow leak. Turns out the rim has gone a bit porous. Solution is to strip and paint the inside.

Paint the inside of the rim with por15, that will seal it and be hard as nails !!!

Thanks Phil, that is a very good idea. Gee the costs start mounting. You know what a Gumtree bargain hunter I am. Alloy rocker cover cost me about $50 delivered.

Column is with Roger Hancock so saving pennies for that at the moment.

Bloody annoyed now as the roller rockers seller contacted me through ebay to say he has cancelled my order. Apparently their stock was incorrect and won't be replenished until February. I was prepared to wait and currently seeking to get the order reinstated.

Cant contact Yella Terra direct for a set or rollers?

Playing with other brands is touch and go from what I have heard.

Crow are pretty reliable. What you heard Drew? Yellow Terra are out of my price range.
