She is much more confortable with this one.Sport 190 Air duct adaptor LA111E0023K �29.55Motorsport air trunking LA111E0020/2 �88.26I strongly belive the engine should breath cold air from outside, instead of hot air from next to the exhaust manifold.Aluminium column stalks �42.55I don’t know who makes these, but they were supplied by Nick Whale Sportscars.I had to modify them substantially before I was happy with their appearance.Carbon fibre gearstick surround �75.00 + vatSupplied by Moto-build. Very flimsy. I reinforced mine using a glass fibre kit from Halfords. I have re-finished it in a sort of ‘satin finish’ instead of the original gloss finish.Carbon fibre door handle surrounds. Price not known. Re-finished as with gearstick surround.Aluminium cigarette lighter. Price ?Made by Ripspeed. Supplied by Halfords.The following were hand-made by myself:Aluminium heater control knobsAluminium courtesy lamp switchAluminium alarm tell-tale (LED) surround[This message has been edited by Brendan (edited 11 February 2002).]
