Well.....

Hi Chris, below is a link to the clock panel https://www.chriswitor.com/proddetail.php?prod=715555SH I can possibly help with a dash panel but it is from a Dolomite.

Michael

You can get alloy pipes (which are a better choice than steel because they are lighter and won't corrode).
Please go for one with beaded ends.

Re: Aftermarket tachmoeter/rev counter

Only four years later... I have fitted a PFL Mk2 PI dash into my 1972 2000 - just in time for the RBRR. However the one on the dash doesn't work correctly. I believe it's due to me having the 123 electronic ignition fitted and my rev counter is the RVI type. Can anyone recommend a place to convert ...

Yes......

Warm the hose up in hot water.

Yes......

Either way, does anyone know offhand what the diameter for the top/bottom hoses on the 2500 are? The kit says it's suitable for 32-40mm diameter hoses which sounds about right. 32mm bore. Please note that hose measurements are given as the internal diameter, whereas pipes are sized as outside diame...

Re: Scabby wheel arches

To be blunt John,
if I had a car that wasn't capable of supporting it's own weight as described
