Re: Series II Windscreen Trim

Well done, I admire your ingenuity and skill, a credit to yourself.

Re: Column-Mounted indicator stalk

The time delay switch is pneumatic, a leather seal pushed by a spring, the air escaping is reduced by a small conical screw, to slow down the return to the centre.

4 hours from home, all motorway, near Gatwick airport, fantastic.

Only need our government to allow us to reclaim our tax back on historic vehicle fuel, now there's an idea.
