#1 Seat Lever Font and Wording?

Post by 288gto » Fri Jul 17, 2020 7:53 am

Hi,

I'm trying to copy the font and text on the original seat levers but unfortunately don't have originals to look at. From the factory fit pictures I have "ULL -LEVER" without the "P" , is that correct even on later cars?

Thanks.

Sorry David have I missed something else in there? I got the picture from the very post you linked to, I just wondered if they ever sorted the typo or did it stay like that. I feel the need to correct it on my new blank levers. :seeingstars:

The company name was Leveroll and the text should therefore be LEVEROLL- (note the dash). In that photo the O has been poorly embossed and ended up looking like a U. I really need to find a better example for that post!
