Anybody got a few old Philidas exhaust manifold nuts spare?

I know plain nuts are readily available and do the job perfectly well, but I was after that original look.

Thanks John, I am familiar with aero nuts, but nobody makes them in brass.

Nice! Thank you. It's close, but not quite, however I will use these if nothing else turns up.

Thank you.

Thanks, I already spoke to Tom Kirk, MD of Philidas and sadly they don't make then in brass.
