    Default 4CV headlamp rim needed

    Hi all

    I have "poverty pack" 4CV which is currently being "unstored"

    It is the el cheapo model with painted headlamp surrounds

    Getting them off for derusting I noted that I am missing the bottom clip on one, which is annoying as they are otherwise good ( and new ones from Europe seem to be a: expensive and b: mostly chrome )

    Does anybody have a spare? It can even be a mashed one , just so I can graft the clips

    Is it the dog-tongue pull, or the ring pull type that is required? I may be able to help with a ring pull type.

    Thanks Simon

    Doesn't look promising - I would characterise it as "dog tongue"

    See photo

    Many thanks for the offer

    Yes, those are what I call the dog-tongue tabs. They would also be very similar to (if not the same as) those used on the Dauphine and early R4, so a choice of other models to pinch a damaged ring from.
