The engine mounts I ordered came on time - and are, of course, NOt the ones I ordered! seems I was taken in by a "file picture" The company have kindly refunded my money AND not insisted I return the offending mounts, but were unable to supply correct ones without a reg number for the (non existent) Volvo I wanted them for! Nothings ever easy in the modding game!
Having been temporarily foiled here, I've been raiding the Stag parts bin again, this time for a centre console. I'm not a big fan of the Dolomite parcel tray and wanted something more substantial than the coin tray. This seems to fit the bill (and the car) and with a bit of hacking about will take the stereo, trip computer screen, electric window switches and a few other small bits.
A chippy mate will be making the 3 bespoke wood panels I will need and hopefully getting a decent match on veneer and colour with the rest of the (all matching pieces) dash!
I am also investigating the possibility of using Stag mechanisms to remotely operate the front !/4 lights. I mentioned the idea to Mahesh and he has helped me with pics that look promising. And also adopted the idea for his car, except that he now plans to go one better and run his 1/4 lights on electrickery!
