firewall grommet source?

Postby djimbe » Tue Jan 31, 2012 8:47 am

OK. I have the firewall/battery tray/inner wings painted on my MkI. I'll be putting the dash back in shortly and reconnecting the wiring harness. I want to replace all of the grommets that were in the firewall. I have found on this site a link to a Gerard's Garage page that shows hole sizes and and what goes though each hole (I made notes when I tore it all down, but it's nice to have confirmation from a real build).

So where are you concourse builders getting grommets? Just get local hardware store grommets, or is there an "official' source? Moss seems to have a pretty limited selection of plugs and grommets for the MkI.

Hi, I think, all the main suppliers have a full set of original dimensions in stock. But the rubber quality will not be the same as 50 years ago !

Cheers

and sorted! It appears that Victoria British has the best selection and description of this kinda stuff and some other dashboard/front bulkhead misc. bits I was looking for.
