    Hinge Arms, Chrome Handle, Fibreglass Brackets

    Hi Everyone,
    I am having a clearout of parts from my Mk1 build.

    In the pic are the 4 Hinge arms, the plastic bushes have been removed. Solid but rough condition.
    The chrome handle to lift the Canopy, no key.
    2 Fibreglass brackets, designed to attach the body to the chassis rails on either side of the gearbox.

    These are free to a good home, I can bring to Stones.

    I've always wondered was those fibreglass buckets are (i've got a couple somewhere), but I still can't visualise the fitment even after you have explained it

    They were fitted to my (new) car:
    Bolted through the existing hole in the chassis rail, above the rear torsion bar, with 3 bolts onto the body.
    I have also seen them fitted to the next hole along (further back) nearer the top shock mount, which is probably a better spot.
