If you are restoring a Series 1 Elan, you may need new dash screws, I have some correct Philips headed black ones for sale if anyone needs them!

Just for my own information are they Phillips Head or Posidrive like the carb screws (why they are always buggered in the US)?
We are supposed to be having fun, are we not?

This sounds a bit too obvious, but have you tried Sue miller. They are (or were) in the catalogue.

Hi Sandy,

if it's an S1 you have the screws should be black, if you have a later car they should be chrome..... as Eric says you should be able to get the chrome ones from Susan!
