I've used LDparts a couple of times now and have found them to be excellent and very competitively priced. I ordered 4 driveshaft UJs off them and some other bits at 10.30 am yesterday and they arrived today at about 10 am, standard post. http://www.ldparts.co.uk.

I would like to add Mick Dolphin to the list.Received my pair of genuine lockheed cylinders the day after he received my cheque,well packaged and only pence dearer than some suppliers knock out Japanese plastic ones for.And probably cheaper than ebay! Polite guy.I will certainly be using him again.

When trying to find some number plate lenses with seals. I contacted Rimmer they sent me some lenses. No seals, upon enquiring they said I had cancelled the order!!!!!!!!!!! This was new to me. It turned out they only had one, which was the wrong one and therefore automatically cancelled the order but you only know when you get the bill for the parts. When 50% of the order came it was for some strange make of car but never for a Triumph. They gave me my money back.
So I tried Earl Parts, exlained what had happened and the said to my suprise if we don't have then Rimmers won't have it as they get thier parts from us. So what happened? Earl parts sent me 2 lenses that were completely wrong. After a couple of tel calls and measuring the glass they came to the conclusion that there were the wrong parts. I now have the right parts but no seals.

In the past I have used Gower and Lee for SU needles.
Just bought some needles for my Spitfire. Find them quite a bit cheaper than Burlens, friendly and good service to New Zealand.

Went on a mini roadtrip to TD Fitchett with my mate (and fellow register member) John Kelly.
John needed a pair of front wings for his mk1 2000 estate, the one which we brought back from Devon April last year (see my blog).
Never been before but heard good things about them from John and I know Dad has used them before too. Excellent service, very friendly guys and lots in stock.
They also have a few cars and bikes there belonging to Tony Fitchett including a 248 mile from new '61 Herald 1200!
I got some bits for me, Dad and my sister (1500HL Dolomite owner)

Recommended whole heartedly and worth ringing to see if they have it.

Colin.
