Default Wanted for Bristol 400

Hello,

I am looking for three items of interior woodwork for my early 400:

O/S and N/S top fascia sections with demist slots
O/S rear side window surround

I am also looking for an original clockwork trafficator unit in working condition.

Regards,

John

John,
if you can not find any wooden pieces , I suggest you make them yourself .
I made the top three pieces above the dash on my 400/650 with simple wood working tools and some time and patience .See attached photo

The rear side windows I have not tackled but would be a lot more difficult.
Have you asked Brian May
Regards
Geoff

A lovely job Geoff and the best 'even' colour that I have seen. I did ask Brian May but unfortunately he did not have the pieces I was looking for.

Regards,

John

Hi John,

You asked for a " O/S and N/S top fascia sections with demist slots"

I do have a complete piece with both demister slots (all in one piece - not two), which includes the central wooden shaped indicator outlet.
As Geoff said you could have a go at making it -I am not sure that it is a simple shape though.
Regards
Peter
