    Hi and welcome...... Hope you enjoy your tinkering......
  3. That is exactly the kind of wheel I'm trying to find.......but what is it and whats it from? Richard spot on thanks... Sorry late spotting that
  4. anyone able to add the dimensions to these sketches?
  5. Ah......cool thanks...... In that case I think the column spline diameter is 11/16ths...... I'm sure I've seen that somewhere
  6. Just checking.....can you guys help please? Type 75 Elite..... Is the boss 17.5mm diameter and 32 splines?????? is the 17.5 to the inside or outside of the teeth/splines?.... How deep are the teeth/splines? Thanks in advance
  7. Anyone got the steering wheel dimension for the horizontal cross member........and the offset for the steering boss/column..... I think there are 2 fixing holes to each end too.......dims to those would be good..... thanks G
  8. @guitar hero @guitar hero how is the view of the gauges tho'.......the ones I've seen with the rising horizontal spoke seem to obscure the binnacle a bit.......???.. I'm trying to keep the horizontal spokes as the original and below the steering column shroud
  9. Black leather with brush finished spokes.....
  10. I have looked and looked for another option for Elite Steering wheels Basically there seem to be non......personally I think the available replacements look too modern I love the original 2 spoke (Im only doing this as mine is knackered and now doesn't fit with my bright shiny new interior) to this end..........Ive done a design....and am going to find out how much it is to get made Ive stuck with the 2 spoke theme......but tried to soften the big 'block' infront of you...and add a bit of the old in, by using typical drilled spokes anyway...........at the moment I'm at 'design' stage thoughts and ideas are much appreciated.......and I have thick skin so please let me know what you think.... cheers G Steering Wheel Design_01.pdf
  11. BrianK Thanks for the pointer..... Gaz can make them.......£102 each......
  12. just thinking out loud I've completely rebuilt the suspension of the car but used the springs and damper that were on the car......all looked good...so thought why not........they all work well but I wondered about adjustable seat coil overs Having recently seen a lovely grey elite that looked like it'd lost a couple of cm's off the ride height......... I'm thinking I might do this......gives me an option to be a bit lower of at the standard height...... Anyone got any experiences?.......anyone know the best place to get adjustable seat dampers?........any insights?........ Thanks in advance........ Like I say.....I'm just thinking out loud.....
  13. I'd gotten a reely gud score Nyn
