Message to all those who have placed order/s.
   
   Positive Meeting with Peter Killey MD of Ceandess Thursday Morning 14th July.
   
   Re-assured that Ceandess can make new mould to guarantee 100% correct Fuel Filler Cap specification with keyhole shape release button.
   
   Chris to prepare quotation for minimum of 100 units.
   
   2  -options to be priced & evaluated with regards the keyhole shaped release button.
   
   The main cap will be die cast fettled then chrome plated and the keyhole shape release button either diecast or machined from solid and chrome plated.
   
   Too evaluate which is best for both value and longevity,  price should be confirmed 1st week of August,  delay due to Annual shut down of Ceandess works last week of July.
   
   Discussed the fixing of the Seal/ Anti-splash back unit secured to underside of each cap, The original was rivetted, however these cannot be replaced resulting in replaceing with a new cap in years to come.
   Have therefore decided to keep cost down by having a non rivetted standard seal unit fitted, This seal arrangement can be removed / replaced any time ....with a standard off the shelf Ceandess seal unit.
   
   Conclusion:-Good constructive meeting with positve results regards
   both specification and potential reduction in price.[;)]
   
   Will keep every one informed  ...  Thank you all for your  order/s, interest and support .. we can achieve our goal.
   
   Cheers for Now.

Keith,
   If the new caps look like the one attributed to an early Cobra count me in for one as well. 308's original is the same as the Cobra one in the picture. Would save me a replate.

Evening  Jerry ( BEX316 )
   
   Your email order is recorded.
   
   Hi Keith
   
   BEX316 still has an original fuel filler cap that is in serviceable condition even though the chrome is pitting.  Witness the photos I sent you. In real life the chrome looks somewhat better.
   Still it would be nice to have an original looking spare at hand.
   It will also increase the total number again.So count me in for one.
   I will ask Cok van der Meer (BEX376) if he would also like one.
   Thanks a lot for your great initiative.
   
   Best regards
   Jerry
   
   
   Jerry..  ..  ..  Please confirm whether you need additional cap fo CvdM by end of July.
   
   New running total.............. 103 pieces
   Cheers for Now

Further to previous email from Jerry,  Just received email for  additional order.
   
   Keith
   
   I got a response from  Cok van der Meer (BEX376) and guess what.[?]. Yes!   He would also like one.
   You can view this as a joint order, I will deliver it to him or he will collect it from me.
   
   Best regards
   
   Jerry (BEX316)
   
   
   Cheers Jerry.
   
   Running total now reads ..  .. .. 104 Fuel Filler Caps.

Received following order from  Art Cleveland:-
   
   Keith
   
   I've been away, so tonight is the first I've seen of your meetingf bwith Ceandess.
   Congratualtions to you, The response to your announcement is certainly not unexpected. I recall asking Brian Eacott about 15 years ago and he couldn't understand why they didn't run off a supply.  THe plating on the pot metal on all the caps of course deterioates in time and Brian said rerplating was not feasable.
   If Ceandess will produce a cap that is the correct design, with quality plating, I'll start with an order for 5.
   
   Art Clevland.
   
   .
   
   Art
   
   Thank you. .. .. Order recorded. .. ..  25th July.....
   
   Running Total (25/7/2011)..  .. 110 Fuel Filler Caps.
