    Graham when the man can build light weight e types out of sheets of alliminium painting isn't a problem ,but unfortunately he's now retiring ,he did a lot of work for one of the big boys in Essex and I was lucky to have met him. Nick

    The last one I had painted inside and out with me fitting the glass dash etc was £5k no vat ,the trouble is when they strip the paint off you are going to find the previous bodges etc that's why most places don't give a definite price, if you have the space and can use some basic tools take it apart ,i am sure the Essex boys would be willing to help . another option get it rubbed down repaired where needed ,masked up and have a fresh coat of paint it will look great .

    TR4A Metal Facia Panel Assembly

    The air vents are a different shape ,but if you have all the bits I can't see it being a problem, I actually put a tr6 dash in my 4a as that's what I had in the spares bin., no ashtray in the top dash pod though. Nick

    John I had the same problem, behind your speedo angle drive you will see a coloured cog ,they have different amount of teeth hence the different ratios the speedo reads, I phoned overdrive services and he sold me the right one ,only about a tenner worth a try . Nick. just seen you are in Oz but I am sure they would post one out.
