Mk1 Pi Estate Restoration

#1 Post by Gealy1183 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 12:14 am

Hello Folks
I’m getting close on finishing this project (well at least the Enginuity guys are) and there’s one part I really need and cant seem to find anywhere - an NOS gear knob. The one on there now is fine - its a repro wood item - but having done everything else to original spec it would be nice to get that sorted too. Anybody know where I can lay my hands on one or a good second hand one. ? I have tried to attach some -photos of the car below.
Cheers
Simon

I have now found a reasonably good Mk1 gearknob. If you want to pm me an email address or if you use WhatsApp, a phone number, so I can send you a photo of it.

Btw I never managed to figure out how to share pictures of my saloon when it was done - here’s a couple from Enginuity and from when it was my daily driver in Tokyo - it’s back in England now though
