    Has anyone encountered these end-cap fittings for the running-board strips please?

    Lost one over the weekend and it looks to have been stuck on with double-sided tape.

    Car Builder Solutions do something that looks similar, but not exactly the same, meaning replacing all 12 on the Hunter. Advice appreciated.

    You could make one that looks almost the same. A piece of aluminium, a file and some elbow grease should give you something.

    I'm going back many years. I have similar fitted bought from Beauford Cars ( are they still in business? )
    I believe they sourced them from Italian scooter manufacture.
    Perhaps you could research that source on the internet.
    Since moving house all my build records are stored in the loft so can not supply better information.
    Good luck.

    Been up in loft and found the following:
    I bought 12 in 1994 from Beauford Cars (based in Upholland, Lancs)
    Cost £10.58 (see photo)
    They where self adhesive, I have had one come off, used the double sided tape for number plates to re-attach.
    Hope this all helps. Dave
