Guide to Parts and Services
sources of spares etc

Most Austin Seven Clubs in the UK, and worldwide,
have local suppliers for consumable items and services - please support them.

The companies listed in our 'Guide to Parts and Services' are those from which our members and Austin Seven enthusiasts have enjoyed good service and feel that other enthusiasts might like to be aware of their satisfaction.  Of course some of the firms listed are local to us but there are those in other parts of the UK which provide essential parts and materials for every enthusiast, home and abroad. 

Persons subsequently making a purchase are responsible for their own decision.  Please be aware that inclusion in the list does not imply recommendation of a company, nor endorse any services or products.  Also Cornwall Austin Seven Club is not responsible for the content of external websites.

The method of stamping is reverse stamping, or embossing. Embossed characters protrude from the data plate, like letters and numbers on a credit card. For a quote please email or write with an exact description of your embossing requirements.

NB: CHASSIS PLATE STAMPING IN THE UK. You must provide: a blank data plate to be stamped with either the original data plate showing exactly what you want stamped and where it is to be stamped on the plate, or a drawing of the data plate with the information printed exactly as you want embossed on the blank data plate.  In cases where a chassis or VIN plate is to be stamped, the plate will only be supplied following receipt of a copy of your log book/registration document with your name and address proving you are the legal owner. If you send the original plate along with the blank, and just want it reproduced exactly as originally stamped, because of deterioration of the original tag, etc, there will be no need to send any other proof of ownership.
