Stunning car.

Why all the rivets in the front spoiler? Do the ones at the bottom have anything to attach to?
And what are the weird things on the rear centre console?

Thanks Stephen, I feel like a king when I drive this car. It really makes my 74 look like a dull maid against this Cindarella. Gets A LOT of attention in traffic. For now this car will just stay as is, just need to get the ventilation/AC working now. If I do anything to this car, it will be a 4sp conversion.

The rivets on the side is for inner wheel arch extensions. The horizontal ones are to hold alu plates to channel air up to the air vents below the bumper.

There are two non-standard switches on the centre console - pity. One is marked "Windows" and behaves like a window switch (self return to centre position) and the other is labeled Park Lights and is an on-off switch. No idea yet what either does. The rest is cigarette lighter and speaker fader (old tech).
Best regards

Phillip. I hainatalled performance pads on my Interceptor along with bolt on 4 piston calipers. My disc is 1/4" smaller than the pads extend. That is why I am looking for a disc that factory fits the Interceptor but is slightly 1/4" or larger. I can always cut it down in size cheaper and accomplished my mission. By no means am I trying to be cheap. You can look at my pics and the finished product is very high class. Thanks. Joe

Brakes. I have bought the corresponding disc with Information from Fosseway Brakes. Since they were so nice to give to me the information I pledged to not disclose the corresponding dis application. Philip you have the necessary info to find the correct you just need to go one step further. I would hope you to would keep the results to yourself. RacerJoe
