Re: 1934 rp sunroof locking rail.


Mine was on the offside too.
The photograph you mention may have been printed from a reversed negative ?


Re: 1934 rp sunroof locking rail.

There should be a triangular steel mounting plate for the locking bolt which is handed for the offside. This fits to the front offside corner of the sliding panel, but is often missing.

We've recently worked with Willie MacKenzie at Austin Reproduction Parts to make these. Hopefully, he'll have one in stock.

Additionally, the curved wooden trim strips on either side of the sunroof opening are of different thicknesses, presumably to accommodate the locking bar. We can supply these strips if you need them.

Location: Herefordshire, with an "E" not a "T".

Re: 1934 rp sunroof locking rail.

Hi Martin
Thank you for your information and reply I have the two wooden strips, which one is thicker than the other,
But I will get in touch with willie for a plate as I do not have one of those.
Thanks again.
