These were posted last night so you should all see them in the next few days

A couple of comments:

Have a good look at the knob before you fit it. If you're not 100% happy using it, don't fit it! Once it's on, it won't come off.

To fit it, just push it on to the spindle until it stops. It should be just recessed in to the housing. It should be a tight push-fit and should not require any glue.

Honest feedback is requested please. If you like it, great. If you don't like it, why not?

Finally, please let me know what you think a reasonable price is for this, by pm if you prefer.

Thanks

Hi MJ.

Just got home after a couple of days driving the D2 in VERY spirited manner on the deserted roads of the Isles of Mull and Skye.

Waiting for me in the mailbox is the delivery from you.

My impressions: Looks great *****Fits great *****Works great *****

If you need one...GO FOR MJ's SOLUTION...you won't regret it!

MJ...I'll send you a PM tomorrow re pricing, etc....

Thanks once again.

DailyMike.

D2 doctor to the rescue!

Thank you, MJ. I'll PM you. By the way, did you finish setting up your e-store? Now I'm reading through the glove box lights thread and thinking of picking up a couple.

I'm with the others...I'll have glove box lights, grommets, brake booster block....we need some +10HP "MJ engineering" stickers . Or perhaps "updated by D2 Doctor"

I'm pretty sure we had a thread suggestion on this a while back, and I for one was all for it then, as now .
