    I think they used to work out at about £50 from finishline after you paid shipping tax etc.

    Gotta agree, £50 for grommets seems crazy to me.

    For authenticity, either do this, it really isn't that hard:

    or buy a few sets of these and try a few with a small hole saw on them till you get it right:

    Not hard at all.......easy if you want to save a penny or two


    Had to look up my purchase history

    those grommets ( it's just a bit of oval rubber ) were actually £2.19 in 2020

    seems they have doubled in price since I looked them up.

    Gotto remember my oldDax was built to a budget.
    Our old Aston had similar high prices at the dealership.
    Could go to Jaguar for the same part a bit cheaper
    or shop around

    No idea why folks pay top dollar.
    But in saying that McVittie's ginger nuts are the best
    Some things you just gotta dig deep.

    Wife tried using supermarket ginger snaps in the McVittie's wrapper - but I could tell.
    so maybe the £50 grommets are the way to go.

    I agree £50 grommets are too steep hence the group buy.. £20 grommets I can live with....

    Kevin ,
    What size are they as they do different sizes in packs of 10. Looks very reasonable £1.20 postage as well !

    Yikes......£20

    12pcs Fit For Motorcycle CG125 Honda Black Oval Round rubber Side Cover Grommets
    on ebay for £4.78 delivered.

    but you'll have to do a bit of work to in inside to suit the stainless tube.

    Use the £15.22 saving on starting up the big block.

    Those Honda ones look a sensible size 27 x 23mm and 36mm x 25mm in the kit. Im guessing you use the larger ones.
    Certainly worth a go.

    I opened them up a bit for the stainless tube.

    Now where did I get that cheap cheap stainless and soft leather interior ?
