Has anyone used LR fasteners in Bolton (who do a lot more series 1 parts than just fasteners, but mail order only)?

It would not be politically correct to comment about a companies product or service on open forum, so if you reply please do so by PM, with whatever comments you feel sums up trading with them.  Thanks Mike

Of course. Tony holds a super resource of hard to find bits.

And there are over 85 other references that should come up in a search of this forum .

One word of warning.  Tony Arnold will probably ask a lot of questions if you talk to him.  Many people interpret this as him being nosey, but in fact he is just trying to make sure that he supplies the correct item, so be patient, supply the information and he will ensure you receive the parts you need. :smiley:

Tony is excellent, and has got a very good stock.   He doesnt take cards, so he is one of the few
cheques  I write.  You could also try Frank Mell, who does a good body kit.  Doncaster

I couldn't read his writing! He must spend hours bagging things up.

Thumbs up from me. Set aside a bit of time for a chat. We always tend to put the world to rights when we speak. He knows his stuff.

Evening all,
I have just spoken to Tony Arnold at L R Fasteners today, so just to make everyone aware.
I’d sent an enquiry, via the form on their website, but having received no feedback I rang him.
Having lost his “tech support person” he tells me he is not responding to emails and cannot handle payment by bank transfer.
Back to telephone call then a letter with cheque.
Still a great resource to my way of thinking.
Cheers
Stu

Do you mean by that Mike that his wife has died or is I'll again.

Tony is in his 80s and has never embraced modern technology

Tony Arnold is a good bloke and really knows his stuff, but yes have your part numbers ready but he doesn't need to look them up, he knows them.  He used to be up for a good chat on the phone, he only lives about 10 miles from me but he doesn't have visitors, everything is done by phone or letter and payment by cheque.  He has produced fastener kits for out 1955 107 and our 49 from the chassis numbers.  The 107 was spot on and we bought the 49 kit before we need it just in case
