Strut Top Nut Cover

Post by pbar »

Just wondering if anyone has, or knows where to get, one of the little black plastic covers from the strut top nut, I've had one missing for ages.

I may just use standard nut covers such as the link below as they are cheap enough -

Have you sourced some original replacements or chosen to use an alternative?

Hi Andrew, I got an original sized Capri nut cover from John Capri Man, as mentioned on your original thread, (great guy, very helpful), and also bought some of the original Cortina/Escort wheel nut ones, as the strut nuts can be two sizes so I have covered both eventualities. Hopefully, no matter what I'll always be able to have them covered now.
