Re: Rusty Custard

No problem Chris. Incidentally when moving the dash panel forward to release the speedo cable, as there usually is very little slack, sometimes on an original car, the cable is sometimes held by a tab on the transmission tunnel which can give an inch or more to play with, but generally for the amoun...

Re: Rusty Custard

Hi Chris, The dash and clock look good! I'm not sure from your last post whether you still need a upper cowel - it was a request but in the same breath you state 'sorted'! If you do need one and Charles can't help out, I too have spares if you still need one. Just be mindful if you get a replacement...

Re: Fitting Interior door handles and window winders

It can be a bit of a fiddle Chris, but the simplest way I've found is to place the black base on the door card ensuring the peg is correctly located into the door card, place the handle over it ensuring before you start that the hole in the square 'peg' of the mech is vertical.
