I have been lucky enough to find a steel Surrey hardtop unfortunately its missing one of the front nuts with its retainer Moss item 28 Pt no 600032 (unavailable), would anyone know of a source or have a suggestion for a suitable replacement.

Thanks

Paul

The front one is just a 16SWG plate with a cage nut welded to it that is spot welded up under the front cantrail, I have had to replace them before now, with the right arms on a spot welder you can spot them back into place. I believe the cage is easy enough to make and use nut part number NQ2708

Bring the roof up and use mine if you want.
