GOT IT Thanks WANTED - Petty strut

Petty strut to fit my 1992 S3 Super Sprint with a single diagonal FIA roll bar.

Even if you haven't got one, do you know for sure the part No or designation of the one I need? And where to get one? I have asked Redline over the weekend and am waiting their response. 

I am hoping to join the Speed Championship and need to have one fitted. 

Thanks

If no luck on here or at Redline, it's probably with a call to Bruce at Arch Motors as I believe they made them. Once you have one unless your FIA rollover bar already has an homologation sticker then you'll also need to speak to Bruce who can provide them.

I might have the part number. I'll take a look in the garage

FYI its in two parts with a sleeved joint. You bolt it into the car, then drill the sleeve joint and bolt together. It then fits your chassis perfectly! 
 

There will be a threaded boss on the passenger side at the front of the door step just below the top. You need to drill out a few rivets on the interior panel. When I found the bush, drilling the interior ally panel the drill slipped through quickly and I nearly punctured the outer skin :-0

I have a cage fitted now so the outer skin is drilled.

Let me know if you need any help (post lockdown!)
