Hi everyone, Any idea if the chrome infill on the rear screen is from a BL Mini?

Thanks in advance, John

I'm sure it is, it was pretty standard stuff for cars of the period with that type of screen rubber.

The locking strip is fairly universal. My Plus2, Sabra GT, Elva Courier Coupe all use the same strip and the same style sealing rubber. It was widely used in the US, as it is the same as on my old 1978 Chevy Dually. The only difference with the sealing rubber for the Chevy, is the width of the groove that fits over the flange of the body. The fiberglass cars have a wider groove.
