door handle escuutcheon

Hello Peter, I have the same problem. All mine are broken. I have been thinking of making some on the lathe out of thick perspex and then painting them black. Watch this space, it will be in a couple of weeks. How many do you need? Trevor S I don't need any now having bought them with the handles. ...

Got a set of four on evil bay - with the handles which I don't really need but they will probably not come in wrong.

Electric Window Fault on GTC

Manual or Automatic ?

Manual or Automatic ?

Sorry Phil I cannot remember where or what I got the gearbox from- I fitted the V8 in 1989 and never regret do it - would still have it but the chassis was past it and I had nowhere to replace it - The engine and box went into a Morris 1000 I think.
