Re: First job jobbed - 2 more found !!!

Thought I'd start this thread to record ongoing improvements to my new acquisition, the Silk Red MY92 Excel I collected last Friday When I viewed the car, I noticed the screws securing the drivers door latch were slightly loose.

Re: Gear knob

Sorry, can you tell me why 0/D is written instead of 5? Thanks, I will try to have it made by a carpenter and the part with the numbers with the 3D printer. We will see the success.

Re: Gear knob

Hi I've got a 1984 Excel with the orignal wooden gear knob, part number is A089F0411F I think.
