« on: 21, June, 2010 - 10:13:35 »
Does anyone have 2 spare plastic chassis inserts that accept the control panel mounting screws?

Sorry mate - I did have two sitting in an old chassis behind my shed but they are so brittle they broke up when I tried to remove them :(

Thanks for trying Booboo. And unfortunately for me, but fortunately for Chas, he is away for a month(actually he has told me that he doesn't have any of these items). In the meantine I have been through the catalogue of the main plastic parts manufacturer and they have no rectangular captive nuts small enough to fit the 12x8mm holes. I also tried a stockist of old car body fixings with no luck. Rawlplug type fixings won't work;I have tried several types. Spire fittings may work but will cause my newly painted chassis to rust where the teeth dig in through the powder coating.So, I am stuck  unless I resort to making a couple of wooden inserts.
