    Dash dismantling...

    Hi Paul, I’m afraid I don’t know about the gap, I’ve sent the dash away now to be refurbished. Could it be related to the several holes and small pieces of ply, and spongy padding underneath ? Perhaps you’re missing some of the circular slots that possibly hold it all in place ? In case you...

    Gear stick knob question...

    Thanks for the lightning fast response Keshav. The plastic seems to be intact inside the knob. I guess the threads have been worn away if that's the case ? Is this salvageable with some kind of adhesive or would that be a bodge ? I haven't really got time to get a new one before sending off the...

    Gear stick knob question...

    Hi all, my gear stick knob (standard plain wood type) keeps falling off. Can anyone tell me how it is meant to be held in place ? I need to know if it's broken before having it refurbished to match my dash. Thanks in advance for any help. Damien

    RHD UK wooden dash possible trade...

    I'm about to have my dash refurbished and I wonder if there is someone who is in the same situation, but would prefer to just do a DIY job rather than a full refurb. The reason is, the veneer on my dash is 99% perfect, and the lacquer is only coming off on the grabrail. It feels a bit wrong to...

    CSL Petri on ebay without a stupid reserve...

    I’ve been keeping an eye on that, but i think it needs too much work to make it look nice, for me anyway. Is the leather original ? Interested to see what others think.

    Would like to buy 4xwindow chrome strips and 2xvent windows...

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me. Are there any flaws in the new chrome ? And do you have a price in mind ? Only problem could be delivery to London UK, do you have any idea of what it would cost ? Kind regards, Damien

    Would like to buy 4xwindow chrome strips and 2xvent windows...

    To save me having to re-chrome, it would be great if someone had these parts available ? I'm in the UK, so ideally within Europe. Thanks, Damien

    Dash dismantling...

    Thanks all. I managed to separate the various parts without too much damage. The worst bit I found was the 3 small divider pieces, as these are glued in. I had to drill a hole underneath to insert something to force them upwards. Markos - some pictures to show how the grab rail was attached, I...

    Dash dismantling...

    Hi, don’t worry, it’s obvious how it comes apart, but it’s just tough to drill out the old rusty screws. Was wondering if I’m missing a trick. I’m in the UK, it’s the same just flipped. The grabrail has about 8 small screws attaching it to the vinyl covered base, then it’s got one screw at...

    Dash dismantling...

    Ah ok. So the bezels are soldered to the back plate. That helps. I’ve got the gauges out, it’s just the black bezels I need to remove, the back plate looks easy enough. I’m sure I’ll see the solders when I remove those circular pads. Regarding the dash itself, I’ve removed several screws...

    Dash dismantling...

    I’m trying to dismantle the dash in order to restore it. Are there any tricks to A) removing the tiny rusty screws without causing damage. And B) removing the black round painted metal covers from the circular openings for the clocks ? It seems like they are glued in place, but I’m paranoid...

    RHD 72' up on eBay

    Cover with a vinyl roof if you really hate it Rek ? I had a CS a while back in this colour and it had a light grey / blue vinyl roof, sounds odd but I really liked it.

    RHD E9 Auction - the results are in

    It's definitely the wrong reg for a car that shouldn't be driven in the rain. The plate is certainly worth a few thousand. It was probably bought by that Pimlico Plumbers guy... https://www.pimlicoplumbers.com/about-us/corporate-identity/number-plates Michael, I had a look at a car recently...

    Vent window refurb...

    Thanks Gary, I'll bear this in mind. So far from what I can see, the chrome on one of my sets is perfect, hopefully when I give it a clean and polish this will still be the case ! It's just a matter of putting the correct colour glass in.

    Vent window refurb...

    Ok that sounds suspiciously simple ! so it just pops out with a little gentle force it sounds. I'm sure dismantling the frame will be obvious.
