Flippin heck KP, they're the business all fitted up!

Love the plans you've got for the rest of the interior!

If you need a hand spraying the rear seats black to save some money let me know. I'll not have the gear up and running until October though.

Would these help for your chrome window switches?

https://m.automotion.com/interior-parts-and-trim/door.html

Should be a uk supplier somewhere.

If you want a traditional wood gear knob I know a chap who can help. He does a variate of wood types.

Thanks a lot for the comments guys , much appreciated Thumb
Chris i have the switches on order from design911 i tried your link but couldn't see them , bet they are cheaper too , that's a good web site and thanks Your pal could well help me out with the black knob , i want a traditional old 911 shiny black one and it has to be spot on so i could have a look at what he can do .. need the proper gear pattern inlaid in white on the top .
Ian i will slowly start the work to the seats and gear stick , as you know it all costs but making plans now to start on the shifter and console , i might strip that back to metal and paint it , give me a few months till its done though , may get the seats while im on but it will cost for the leather and then there is the the trimmers bill , do you lads know about Northumbrian leather craft in Heaton , he is very well known for his work on classic cars but is booked solid for two years , i asked him if he would cover my seats but he hasn't got the time , i will have to find someone else , possibly southbound but there must be others .

I could ask Andy, who did my steering wheel and handbrake. Pretty sure he did Norm Shums custom leather interior on his maritime blue c4 lightweight. Have you seen the thread that used to be on rennlist?

The lad who did the trimming is called Andy, from Cheshire. I think he works for Bentley and trims in his spare time.

Search for Nski "project Amazon" thread on rennlist and take a look.

When I get the chance to pop round take a look at my steering wheel and handbrake and see what you think Smile

Guy who sells the gear knobs is a chap off Pelican forum called Manuel. They cost $100 for balsa wood or similar. Exactly like the older Porsches. Feedback from other buyers is good Smile

Sending you a PM.

If there is a gang going ill go any day which day is best though ???
I went to the air show today (Sunday) and it was bad , hung around all day for some noise and one "modern" fighter turned up at 5 o clock to close the show , Sunday at the Sunderland air show IMO is just a second chance for the burger and ice cream lads to make some money as the entertainment was sparse and boring . Should have bought the program i hear you say Confused

I've dropped you a PM Keithster Smile

If you get the chance drop me your email addy and i'll send you pics of the balsa wood gear knobs.

Shame about the airshow being a bit naff on Sunday, at least you saw the euro-fighters closing the show (by the sound of it)! thumbsup We popped down Saturday and it was cracking (other than the odd drunk pleb!)

Rock great Brian Johnson to race Mini at popular retro-flavoured motoring festival

As if there were not already enough compelling reasons to visit Croft Circuit’s Nostalgia Weekend (2-3 August) with its irresistible blend of fast cars, wheel-to-wheel racing, vintage music and dress and fabulous funfair, a special guest is now set to rev anticipation into overdrive.

Legendary AC/DC front man Brian Johnson is a late addition to the sparkling Nostalgia Weekend line-up. The man famous for such rock anthems as ‘Highway to Hell’, ‘Back in Black’, ‘Hells Bells’ and ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ will take to the circuit in the Historic Touring Cars class behind the wheel of a 1964 Mini Cooper that he purchased late last year after driving it in his television series ‘CARS THAT ROCK WITH BRIAN JOHNSON’.
Sing

Sent you a pm Keith. Can meet at Rockliffe Hall Golf Club for coffee or breakfast or both before we enter, it's only 5 mins from Croft entrance. Or can meet and drive straight in?

Cheers & apologies for hi-jack,
Paul Thread Hijack
