    I think CJ tried these. Aren't they something to do with bookbinding?
    Neil has done all the work though. No point re-inventing the catch refurb kit!

    The Chicago screws were ok to replace the odd missing pin.
    That was then.
    Now, Neil is making a thorough and OE spec fix.

    I used Chicago screws on my refurbed set and they look and work just fine - although havent fitted them to the car yet but Neil's presentation offers a great alternative.

    Hi Neil,
    Did you sell all the new targa catch springs?
    I need just 2.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone know the correct spec. for renewing the torsion springs on the X1/9 catches?
    Thanks.
    This kind of thing, but they come in different rates/sizes:

    Don't know about torsion rates but when I made mine I used 1mm piano wire coiled to the same dimensions as the originals (7 coils, 10mm O/D, 8mm I/D). The load on the catch felt very similar once fitted
