You are quite right. it has the 2 pins but there was no bending or foul play, it fits like a glove in to the two holes and sits perfectly between the "arms" of the bracket. I must admit, I was worried about this part as I didnt tell Tony about the bracket but it fits perfectly, I may cut a bike inner tube up to stop any metal on metal scratching.. (if you look at the original the side with the pins is flat, it just has rounded edges)

My only advise for anyone having a new one made is to confirm the bracket size as maybe you wont be lucky like me...

One thing, the original straps wont fit wound this so you might have to ask Jon nicely to manufacture some nice shiny replacements to fit in stainless, however since I have many spare parts, if you have 2 x of the longer sides of the original bracket, this can be used to attach the bracket.

Please dont take offence in me correcting you but this was handmade, a handjob is something very different and not included in the price!

I was going to comment on your choise of words, but David already did  Wink
But about the price... You pay that much for a handjob? It mus be because you have the Euro. It sounds kind of 'stiff'  Grin

In the top post on page 3 of this thread I already included a photo of the stainless straps I made. This was a first attempt and they work quite nicely. I was not quite pleased with the smoothness of the bends, but it was close enough for government work Cheesy
I used 2mm stainless wire that Philbert had on hand.

BTW, David. Have you considered making a hole for a float switch, such as the one Graham have pictures of on page 2 of this thread ? I think I would want that, or a sight tube on the side.

I visted Brise Fabrication yesterday. They have promised that they will have 5 x Aluminium Cooling Expansion Tanks ready in 2 weeks time. As they actually have mine as a pattern I hope they are true to their word, as I would like it back in my car soonest.
Regarding the price, this was still not resolved but I have made the order anyway and just hope that I will be able to sell them at whatever cost I negotiate under £175:00.

I'm looking forward to hearing news from you/Brise. And I hope you get yours back soon so you can get back on the road! Smiley

I now have in my possession Qty. x 5 MK2 Version "Brise Fabrication" Pressure Tested Aluminium Matra Murena 2.2 Coolant Expansion Tanks, which fit using existing mounts and hoses.

Price paid by me £160:00 each. I will sell at cost this time only, plus the relevant postage charges to whatever destination.

N.B. Brise advised that £250:00 would be the appropriate Market Price, if I was to sell them as a dealer.

Anders, Jan, Hans, David and Philbert will have the first chance to purchase if you are still interested?

I'm certainly still interested. They're looking great. Many thanks for working this out, Graham!
Jon, Philbert and I are living close to each other, so should be combined in shipment, I suppose.
