Re: FHC interior trim details

Mitch, I have (18)the hardura mat; it sits at the bottom of the 'box'. (20) is the lower bulkhead. It is (19) cubby box upstand I am having trouble with. I know on my car it should be vinyl covered on the outside, but is it also covered with vinyl on the inside? 1/2 m of vinyl could quite possibly c...

Re: FHC interior trim details

Hi Mich,

Thanks for your reply.

FHC interior trim details

Hi, The interior of my 65 car was far from original when I bought it. I am now in the process of retrimming it and I thought I would do it the hard way by buying materials instead of a trim kit. :doh: Can I ask a few questions: Is the back of the upstand behind the seats trimmed on both sides? If th...

Re: Steering rack rebuild

Hi Tom,

Are you saying that this is a LHD rack that has been converted to a RHD rack?

That is new; can you elaborate?

Re: Series 1 bonnet wiring loom fixation points ?

Hi Carsten, I am sorry, I no longer have the original to measure. The Series Two stone guard is narrower and mounts further forward in the bonnet mouth. I have converted my Series One to Series Two size as I am fitting AC and needed more room in front of the radiator for the Condenser. I think that ...

Re: Correct rear door hinge covers?

Thank you Steve and Klaus, Klaus; yes I think you are right, the PVC refers to the covering in the parts manual as there is also a reference to a Moquette cover. So they are all steel; not sure about the different spacings for the screws though; I will study the different part numbers to see if they...

Correct rear door hinge covers?

Hi, I have been wondering for a while whether my rear door hinge covers are original fitment. The parts book states that they are made of PVC (BD28173,BD28174 and BD28175). Mine are made of steel. The screws that hold them on are thicker than the originals too. I thought that perhaps a PO had used b...

Re: Bonnet Balance Link Assembly

Interesting; I was not aware there were different angled links.

However, blowing up your photo, it looks to me like the one on the far right is bent where the bolt is substituted for the rivet.
