Apologies due from all of us here at the Bond Bug spares Scheme if we've failed to respond to messages, emails etc since June 2017 this was mainly due to our property changing landlords which has presented us with ongoing problems, despite the new landlord stating that we can carry on exactly as we were under our former landlord, he has since changed his mind and wants to move in ASAP the original date being 2nd October, we said no to that as our tenancy runs until 2nd December, therefore we are currently in the unfortunate position of looking for a property to rent and a workshop with storage space. We are in the process of packing up our Reliant and Bond Bug stock ready for our move as and when it happens, please note that from the 2nd of December 2017 we may loose our current landline number 01424446078 and possibly internet access until we are all sorted out. However should you require any parts urgently between now and prior to the Christmas posting deadline we can be contacted on 07896473660 tx messages can also be left on this number. We are hoping to stay in the East Sussex area but you never know as circumstances may change further.
We thank you all for supporting the spares scheme in the past, and we are looking forward to a brighter New Year.
Best Regards Dave,Dawn and Azzy The Bond Bug Spares team
Is it possible to check that my membership to the spares scheme is intact? I joined about 3 or 4 years ago and paid my £20. But since that day I got no replies to any emails I sent enquiring about parts. I did sell my Bug project when I had to move house a but I did get a Reliant project some time later.
My address at time of joining would have been 171 Town Street, Leeds, LS10 4TA. David Brown.
Dave was away at the club rally for the back end of last week and the weekend. And with his sons did their best over and above to get my ailing Bug mobile again - alas to no avail - so please don't be too hard on him

burlmeister: m looking for a replacement petrol tank. Does anyone produce them? Secondly, I need to replace the tyres. There is a sign in the car and in the handbook, only cross ply tyres to be fitted. No idea why this should be. Are cross ply tyres still available?

ady: For the petrol tank try looking up triggergas on ebay, he might be able to make you one. You can fit radial tyres, most people do. There is plenty of choice of tyre for it as they are the same size as a Mini. You can still get crossplys if you want
