Now you mention it Dave, it reminded me that last week I found a brand new unused '2500' metal badge for pfl carb 2500 models (for the Australian market) in my 'parts stock'.
Now how much is that worth to any one interested!???! :wink:

Well, there could be a venue for it if my blue car gets an upgrade this year :) Can I claim first dibs? :wink:
I just need a 2500 engine to go with it!

Rusty has a fairly modern radio in the facia hole at the moment. It “fits where only where it touches” is there a Triumph or aftermarket facia plate available so that we can mount this or another radio more securely?

You can buy this for the Stag (image pinched from eBay), I have fitted one in mine, maybe there is a T2000 equivalent?

The Stag one also fits the 2000 mk2 range, I have one in my red car, but they are expensive for what they are.
They do a good job, however!

Agreed - they are expensive but I have one in the Stag and and in the PI. They do the job!

Cheers,
Mike.

I turned up a radio surround on eBay labelled for a Stag the other day for under £30 - thanks for the information.

Thanks to johnnydog for the dash panel, which I fitted yesterday. I went for a later Mk2 dash and substituted the dash light rheostat for the seat belt warning light. It took a little while to remove the old dash until I managed to get the speedo cable off the back of the speedo, then it was just substitution, which I did by taking lots of pictures on my phone, before dismantling and the fitting one dial at a time.
