Re: Interceptor Mk1 toggle switch

Unfortunately not an Interceptor switch as it is single speed and washers jet.

The switch linked by Shaun is what I also have on my Mk 1.

I know this as i bought one of the switches a while ago :-(

Can't comment on speed cameras but white on black do seem to be immune from congestion charge cameras in central London...

Re: New Interceptor owner in Nottingham

Hi Van,

Welcome to Jensen ownership; I think we are long overdue a psychologist as an owner as you may be able to provide an interesting analysis on the characteristics associated with our strange obsession.

Looking forward to photos and perhaps meeting at shows.

Best regards,

John.

Boris sees sense

Dear Stakeholder Thank you for taking the time to respond to our recent consultation. I can confirm that today the Mayor confirmed the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which will launch in central London in 2020.

Re: MK 1 window switches

Do you know if the chrome ring is separate to the switch surround, I've never seen one up close and I think it was deleted by the time my car came down the production line. Shaun I'll know in a week but I do know that Stuart the seller is a member so perhaps he can clarify. My hope is that I can ha...

I have one complete set of NOS lucas switches that will make a complete set for someone else. Please get in touch if you need early mk 1 switches and hopefully we c...

Re: Diamond pattern hood insulation.

Material is ordered.

USD 375 + postage.

As I'm a deep pocketed short armed Scot the delivery will be to friends in New York - just hope the parcel is not to big for them to bring or my other half will treat this as an excuse to go visit!

Re: Diamond pattern hood insulation.

Many thanks for the measurements, I'll get some made up and see how it looks. My suspicion is that the new material will be a bit 'plumper' than the original but I have seen the effect on other marques and it should certainly be better than the currently naked bonnet! Will post pictures in due course.

Re: Diamond pattern hood insulation.

Hi, Following a conversation with Dave Pearce about under bonnet linings (and what an amazing car he has!) I decided to follow up on this subject, the available choices seems to be something reflective like aircraft firewall material or the link above. There is also a Mercedes material advertised as...
