Question
Hi Howard,

  Have you ever come across a supplier of new or alternative lug nuts for the TR7 ?  Mine are a bit rusty, I know one British supplier has them but they are very expensive - about $15 each.

Thanks,

Steve

Answer
Hi Steve,

$15 for a set of 4 might be ok but still a little high because Moss Motors is selling them for $2.50 each at full list price. I didn't shop around to Victoria British, British Parts Northwest or Engel Imports who I deal with a lot. But I think who ever you got that quote from looked up the wrong number or is selling them as a set. Or they are gold plated.
