Re: RHD 3.8 Instrument panel wiring.

Richard, are any of the wires for optional items or those that were fitted during later years of production and Autosparks include them to cover all options? Can they (not the disgruntled employee :lol: ) advise?

Re: Interior chrome edging strip

Paul, would an option be to find a strip of metal that could be chromed after you've bent it to shape? Especially if you use a shrinker/stretcher tool to bend the strip it would make a mess of any chrome already on a strip, but you could shape if nicely to fit, trim to size then send off for chromin...

Re: Bump Stops in rear arches

My bump stops were removed, presumably, when the fat 205/70 tyres were fitted.
I've searched for the parts shown in that other thread "Ohlins bump rubbers #00563-03" but to no avail.
Does anyone know of where they (or an equivalent) can be found?
Thanks

If one wants to change to silicone fluid what is the suggested way of doing it and clearing out DOT4?

Adding my name to say thank you to Angus and all the team for an interesting day.

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

Silicon fluid isn't compatible with some of the seals in older cars designed for DOT4. Which might be the cause for some of your problems. Though it's interesting to hear you say your father's car ran with it. If Angus can get a seal set for the E to change all of them to silicon compatible that wou...

Re: Help identifying Series 1 after-market aircon unit

Peter, can't help with identity, but seeing Clayton Classics fit aircon via vents in the centre panel, you could, perhaps, create something to do the same and avoid double amputation?

Re: Bonnet locks : pin is way to far forward ?

Malcolm, you may notice the blue one is without windscreen wipers. Whether Christopher relies on Rain-X or never goes out in the rain or, just maybe, the photo was after restoration work?
I do agree with your comments though
