Some of these are non standard size being slightly larger than normal bucker rings.

If they are standard size, you may just have to drill and fill standard bucker rings.

Not much help, but the best I can do

Find a plastics fabricator/welder nearby. If you bring a sample, they will likely be able to make one up for you. I had trouble finding a replacement for my single pup rectangular ring which was split on one side. Took it to a plastics welder and they welded it back. The plastic base (where the height screw fits into) of my pickup had also broken off and he welded a piece back - it had the original strength after the weld so I just drilled a hole and inserted the height screw.

Thanks guys, don't want to import from the states for something so insignificant, most likely go with hoax's suggestion and use a standard drilled n filled..... Unless something closer to home turns up.

Yea, super glue was my first port of call, didn't take. Some do some don't.
It's right on the screw hole, just my luck.

Use a normal 2 hole surround. Drill the pickup base plate between the two and solder a nut on there to take a screw. Or drill 2 holes on a normal surround and fill the middle one.
