Hello to the collective -

I am now looking for the ultimate missing part - the driver side front clamp base for a factory works hard top. The clamps are available, the bases are not. I know this is a loooong shot.

I have just finished the hardtop restoration and while driving today with the hardtop on, I heard a strange 'pop' and...I didn't think anything was too tight or not functioning as expected...dammit.

You can see the crack to the right of where the clamp screws to the base. Any help would be appreciated...thanks in advance. Best.

Two companies in UK manufacture and carry those. You CAN get them from one of the overpriced parts dealers here, but will pay triple. I recently ordered from Cape International as well. Great guys and fairly quick response and shipping. Be prepared for the tax.
The bases will not come all pretty and chromed like yours. They will be semi rough cast.
Nice car.
