Does anyone know where I can buy the replacement body part that contains the long tube/screw thread that hold the rear light on. It seems to act as a tie between the rear bodywork and the chassis and may hold and support the bumper. It is on the Rimmers exploded diagram but has no part number. I need two for my restoration as they were rotten.
Thanks

Do you mean parts 23 and 24 on this, which have the tubes the rear over riders bolt through?

Not 100% sure what you mean, as the rear lights screw into the backing plates, which in turn just have short threads through a 'U' shaped channel?

Is it the tube that's rotted out on them? They do show as no longer available, so short of repairing the ones you have it looks like the only option is to find a rotten tub with the bits you need you can cut out.

No its the actual panel, the tubes look fine, I will have to fab another panel and cut the tube off the old ones then re-attached on the fabbed panel.
Thanks for the info

The part you need isn't available, I've salvaged them from scrap cars in the past and have this exact job to do imminently on one of my Coupes.

An illusive part?  That'll be why it's disappeared.

An elusive one you'll find, eventually!

John was succumbing to the temptation I resisted and correcting your spelling. The word you want, meaning "difficult to find", is ELUSIVE. The word you used is an obscure derivative of the root of "illusion", and means "deceptive or imaginary".

Also, your grammar is bad - the word "its" is a gender-neutral version of "his" or "her". The contraction of "it is" must be spelled with an apostrophe - it's. Then the word "to" is a direction. The simile for "excessively", like the one for "also", is spelled 'too'.

So I resisted pointing this out at first; after all, this is a car forum not an English language lesson, and many of the folks on here are young enough to have been victims of the dismal quality of British education since the 1980s. However, correct use of the language does improve the ability to accurately relate your intended meaning.

And "spell checkers" on the various e-fruit don't help, changing stuff that doesn't need changing apparently at random and failing to point out stuff that does.....  As for "predictive" text  

Good luck with that panel - difficult shape to form so possibly better to try for a good used one - if it can be found.

I expect I fall into that category. Reading plenty of good books has been an effective remedy that I can recommend. However poor the school (and the least said the better about the ones I went to) there is nothing inevitable about the sort of illiteracy you see all the time these days.

It is good to know that there are other people out there noticing grammatical errors and resisting the temptation to correct them.

As for the state of education today, the least said the better, if for nothing more than the fact that the little darlings can not string a coherent sentence together.

I am north of 40 and apologise for me errors, but I prefer to spell phonetically, as I find it easier !! ha ha.  

Thanks for the tip about the spit part, I will check it out.

One of my friends complains about the teaching his children get, but is always using the wrong forms of there / their / they're, and where/were/we're/wear etc. When I correct him, he says it doesn't matter because people know what he means.

The hypocrisy of this is lost on him it seems.

I know my spelling and grammar isn't very good, nor is my sentence formation. I wasn't really academic at school (far from it!), but I do my absolute best. Unfortunately, like when I was the spaz-kid at school, it still isn't good enough for some.
