Re: Carb Needle Options

I think Chris Witor may have some knowledge on the best needles for your carbs / engine. Worth a phone call at least.

Re: 2500 S Project

Re: Centre console removal

Personally, for the time it takes to remove the gear lever knob, its not worth faffing about and risking damaging the surround. Good undamaged ones are getting harder to find...

Re: Late 2000 Steering Wheel Centre - Wanted

If you mean the circular embossed rubber centre fitted to the steering wheels with the three 'alloy' spokes, as on the PI and 'S (although the PI was actually a larger wheel), they only ever had '2500' embossed in them, not '2000'. The rubber centre of the 2000 in some respects resembled a spaceship...
