I decided to try a few of the parts that are available cheap from China to see what they’re like. It might take a while to get it all sorted, it’s getting cold out in my garage! I thought I’d post a few things as I go, though.
First up is a radiator grill. Looks nice enough out of the box.
Rather than bolt anywhere at the bottom, it hooks round the radiator. It might rattle a bit, but I’ll sort that if it does.
Undoing the left bolt (as I look at it) was a pain, with the rubber mounting block twisting a fair bit. It did come out, but was a pain to get back in and the rubber looks a bit odd now. Ah well, the new grill is mounted now.
Unfortunately, the seller only sent 7 screws (not bolts as you get with the proper ones) for attaching them and no screws for attaching the outer covers. I could knock up a spacer and get a bolt/screw, but the little screws seem to be a strange thread. Hole is around 5mm, but an M5 won’t go in. Maybe UNC or UNF, but hard to tell as I can’t get a thread gauge on there. Hopefully the seller will get the replacements to me pretty quickly.
