Dash knobs, etc- Bits still needed for my S3

PostPost by: LYTEBRITE » Sat Aug 18, 2018 8:22 pm

A big thank you to date for everyone who has contributed to my rebuild to date.
Also a shout out to my mechanic- Dave Barr at Checkpoint Automotive in West Los Angeles.

I have the car back and am putting miles on it after a lengthy hiatus redoing the head, brakes, fuel tank and a full dash rebuild incl sourcing all of the dash bits. gauges, switches, etc.

So, I am still missing a few cosmetic pieces that I would like to find:

1. (2) Bonnet pulls- with the correct "Bonnet" lettering
2. Heater knob
3. Choke knob
4. Cigarette lighter assembly

If you have any in a shoe box and are willing to part with them, please let me know.

Those are some of the most difficult parts to find, I suggest that you use what you can get that fits the hole, and then like me, you wait, watch and hope. It may be some time before one of those turns up.

Postage shouldn`t be much.
