Re: MK 1 Courtesy/cabin lights

Hi Nigel, Thank you for your post. What is the quality of the reproductions compared to originals? Were you pleased? Getting the originals re chromed plus my time and effort the reproductions seem good for the price. Another Italian website wanted 410 CHF (not sure why Swiss francs) for originals t...

Re: 115/3484 Restoration

Out with the original Smiths interior heater blower, in with a more gutsy Toyota MR-2 unit. I know this is a frequent mod in Mk2s and Mk3s, but the Mk1 heater set up is very different and some substantial modification to the heater box was necessary as the photos below show...

Re: 115/3484 Restoration

New fuel tank installed (I chose the larger Mk2/Mk3 tank which has required some minor surgery to the boot floor to make it fit), as well as the refurbished power steering rack (fortunately a Pow-a-Rak not a Cam Gears). We also resolved the fresh air blower motor issue - a NOS unit from a Bedford HA...
