Re: Rad air control flaps

Hi Peter
I bought a set from SNG Barratt part number C33960/3 £11.76 in stock inc VAT

I bought mine in 2011 and they were pretty good quality so probably not worth trying to make them for that sort of money

Cheers

Re: Series 3 power steering noise (video inside)

Hi ljbp To be honest I couldn't pickup the noise from the video so not sure what it is. I used to get the squealing noise from the power steering when on full lock standing still. Eventually found out it was the belt slipping. You can easily eliminate this by wetting the belt and trying it again, at...

Re: Trim colour change S3 V12 2+2

Hi Guys Many Thanks for your replies. It seems all the later 2+2 had grey headlining and black vinyl sun visors. This is what I had in my olive green interior. As I will be changing the interior colour to biscuit I originally thought it a little odd to have black vinyl sun visors with a biscuit inte...

Re: 1973 V12 2+2 original documents question

Thanks Bill
Looks like I don't have that. It doesn't look familiar but it would have been nice to have the full compliment of the original documents, never mind though.
Thanks again for your response

Re: New Battery

Hi Bernie As long as your not looking for concourse I bought a battery from Halfords. All I did was lightly sand the edges/corners and the plate fits like a glove and also in the battery tray and the terminals are the right way round. I will stick some LUCAS labels on at some time.

Re: PDWA cable missing Series 3 1973 ??

Hi Doddsy Thanks for the information. Your logic is correct about the PDWA. The car is away being painted so I didn't have sight of the cables only some old photos I had taken some time ago. I saw the car this week and realised that the left hand side brake fluid cable is different to the right hand...

PDWA cable missing Series 3 1973 ??

Can anyone advise whether I should have a PDWA cable. The car is a Series 3 RHD 2+2 built June 1973. Chassis number is 1S51856BW. All I have is C37468 plug that the cable would fit into. The plug is hiding behind the brake fluid pipe in the photo. http://i346.photobucket.com/albums/p415/ColinWeeks/I...

Series 3 V12 Olive green interior vinyl

I am looking for a lead as to where I can obtain some of the Olive (Green) interior vinyl for my Series 3 V12 Etype 2+2 (Green Sand). I have tried the main suppliers but drawn a blank so far and wondered if any forum members knew of any supply available.
Many Thanks for any help
