I am continuing the rebuild of the boot area of my 1960 XK150. I have two questions:
The numberplate/reversing lamp chrome casting is held on by four UNC screws (thanks Bob). However, while the two outer screws align correctly the two inner screws are about one hole diameter too low. Before breaking out the Dremel (on my pristine newly painted boot lid!) I thought I would ask if anyone else has had this problem? All indications are that both lid and casting are original.
The reversing-lamp wire loom passes through the rear bulkhead. There are two holes near each other, one plain and one with what seems like a pair of adjacent holes presumably for some sort of clamp arrangement. I have used a grommet on the plain hole. Does anyone know what the second hole is for?
I have looked in all of my books and none of them describe this issues. All help appreciated
