#1 Heater extension assembly

Post by oldbenz » Sat Jan 30, 2021 2:51 am

Hello! I am restoring an early (2nd Feb 1962) rhd 3.8 fhc. I have a question about the correct colour for the Heater Extension Assembly, the fibreglass box fixed to the underside of the bonnet that sits on top of the heater box when the bonnet is closed. I thought because my car is relatively early (860206) just 35 cars past flat floors, it should be silver. Now I’m not sure. Anders Ditlev Clausager’s book says silver for 3.8 and 4.2. E -Type Restoration Manual by David Barzilay have theirs in body colour on a very early bonnet lock model. E-Type Originality Guide by Haddock and Mueller doesn’t have anything and various pics on the net show it to be black. Any clues anyone?
