[Healeys] Luggage Rack

I installed and used one of these original BMC style stand up luggage racks 
for years on my tricarb BT7. I was very happy with it, and highly recommend 
it to anybody contemplating installing one. I can only suppose the chrome on 
the bumper of the fellow you spoke to must have been thin or inferior in 
some way. the chrome feet are rubber tipped where they rest on the bumper. 
As for the holes in the hinges wearing thin, the only wear possible would be 
each time the hinges pivot, and I can't imagine that being too frequently.
