  1. Welcome Bruce. If you have 30 years experience as a mechanic I will be coming to you for help and advice.
  2. I hope it works. I’ll be interested to see your results. 🤞
  3. My glove box button has also lost its finish. Do you have any plans or are you going to live with it?
  4. Very tidy indeed. Dash looks like new.
  5. Before, during and after please. Hope he can sort you out.
  6. They’re on the way @TheRealExile. Posted this morning.
  7. Posted. 😁 I don’t think I will be “sold out” any time soon. Message me if and when you need them. Sorry @TheRealExilei’ll post yours tomorrow.
  8. They’re not for sale - they are FREE to club members if postage is covered. Anyone who wants a pair send me a pm with your address.
  9. Have you got these bolts now @paulmanta? I’ve got 48 of these if you or anyone else needs them.
  10. A couple of you recognised this gator @Snowy @GTEPETE and probably others. Do you think it will fit the gearshift? The hole diameter would need to be no greater than 37mm diameter. Thanks.
  11. Changed the breather hoses again. Fitted the tank and grommet. Thanks again @mantasrme. Socket set is a good fit between exhaust tunnels 😁
  12. That’s a very generous offer @Jessopia74especially as you will actually need it yourself - even if that is a few years down the line. @MrCarlosmay have a dark tan carpet that would suit my car but if that doesn’t work out I’ll be back in touch.
  13. I don’t want to fit door glass and winders until I have door checks - better access. Roof lining needs to be in before front and back windscreens. Easier to fit dashboard top before front windscreen. Carpet needs to be in before seats. ………. and similar issues under the bonnet but these are V8 related.
  14. It’s never going to be an exact science with so many options at play. The number of permutations is mind boggling. Good luck with whatever you do @Snowy. These forums are a great place to learn, sometimes from other peoples mistakes. Bolting a variety of parts together is always going to be “Trial and Error” after all. So long as all the clearances checkout it shouldn’t go BANG! 🤞 PS. (And disclaimer) I don’t know what I’m talking about.
  15. Thanks Carl - I’ll look out for pics on Thursday.
  16. Thanks Carl. Send me a pm or email with your prices please. You sent me photos of a “very” light tan carpet before and if it’s the same one it’s too light. If you could send me some photos of both that would be great. Thanks.
  17. Thanks 😃. Looks like this company could help with the carpet as well. I’ll call them tomorrow.
  18. I’ve spoken to East Kent Trim but he didn’t seem too keen and needed me to source the material.
  19. Progress is delayed on all fronts. I’m actually at a standstill until I can find the parts below. The following list is in order with the “Highest Priority” first; Roof lining - Tan/Beige and Black or details of a supplier, Dashboard top - Black, Carpets - Black ideally or Tan/Beige, Speedo cable, Rear parcel shelf - coupe, no holes, Door check straps, Door rubber seal - drivers side, lower section, black, Cill chrome trim (both sides but will buy what’s available), Washer bottle - rectangular (needs to be really clean), Thanks for looking. 🤞
  20. Thanks @mantasrme. Ventilation ducting all up together now and fuel tank grommet cleaned up nicely as you said. I found the original within half an hour of fitting the one you sent me. 🙄
  21. You worried me @Jessopia74 but I’ve check too and they’re all like that. The bulge gives spanner/socket clearance on the other side. I’ve put a straightedge across both the old and new and guess what? They’re exactly the same. 😁 The light and the shine just make them look different. Thats an old bush @cam.in.head but its not necessarily the original -it may have been replaced buy a previous owner.
  22. I refurbished a front crossmember a while ago and I’ve just noticed that the braces that run from the crossmember back to the chassis rails are slightly different. Initially I thought they were damaged! Does anyone know; When they changed - which years had each type? Why they changed? Are they interchangeable?
  23. Is that a new roof lining @Kurtupsin75? If it is can I have the suppliers detail please? Thanks.
