In Topic: Dash Compartment Lid

Thanks guys!

Chris and Wilco, you are spot on there.
Pretty much every breakers I have contacted either don't have any Ghia's/Titanium's in for breaking, or if they do, the lid won't shut.
Trying to find just the lid that has a intact catch is very difficult, and as you say are rarely up for sale.

The catch in mine is still there, but a tiny piece has broke off of the tip, obviously enough for it to not catch correctly.
The previous owner had wedged a small piece of paper in the gap, but I've actually glued it shut now as I got so fed up with it, but as I hate something not working correctly in my car, I want to try and replace it.
Top marks for the link, that is genius! I'm going to have to work out how I can fabricate a similar part.

I use Autobrite Very Cherry (the non acid version) wheel cleaner. It's fantastic and the level of shine it leaves is brilliant.
I've tried pretty much all wheel cleaners and this is by far the best, don't bother with any others!

I also use an EZ detail brush (expensive but great quality will last - mines 3 years old and still fine!) with a small detailing brush.

Another reason I wanted to make sure I had the correct ratings - insurance!

I don't want to be caught out just because of that.

To be fair, I could just grab some N rated tyres (Not that I've seen any) - can't legally go faster than 87MPH anyway!

Good call Shane, forgot all about that label - even though I clean the door shuts every time I wash the car!

 

Kurt, thanks for that.

 

I did kind of think the last garage may have a point after posting my question - I think he maybe referring to the top speed and lack of towbar etc.

 

I'll probably stick with the V's, seeing as how they are on there and have passed many MOT's since.
