Hello everyone, my name is Philippe. I'm 35 and I restore an Austin Healey Sprite MK3 from 1966. You can follow my restoration on the french site :

https://www2.mgcontact.eu/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=28522

If I come to ask you for help, it's because no one has found the answer neither the parts suppliers nor the french forums....

I'm looking for the reference of this chrome part shaped comma right and left?

Here are two pictures of the part :

What about them?

If you're looking to buy new ones, I don't think you'll have any luck.

Have your old ones rechromed and attach them with tubular or semi-hollow rivets.

If yours are trashed, put a "Want To Buy" in the buy, sell, and trade section of the forum.

Phillippe, I have them on a parts car I just bought. I will determine their condition and if we cut a deal I can send them to you in France.

Even though we are expecting bad weather in Tennessee USA all weekend, I plan on stripping everything off this car beginning Friday PM. I will keep you posted.

Only fitted to the Mk2 Midget and Mk3 Sprite which ran for three years. I'm not sure they have ever been available after the cars were new. Parts cars are your best source.

I will carefully extract them from my Swiss Cheese beauty tomorrow and photograph them so you know what you're getting. I don't believe I need them for my 1965.
