    'Panel' and 'Wiper' dash fluted knobs

    Hi all, I am trying to source the Wiper and Panel fluted dash knobs. (I've tried to attach an image but not sure if I've done it right!!). I think I have sorted out the Wiper knob, I think they were original equipment fitted to the Jaguar XK 120, 140 cars in the 50's, but I'm struggling to find what cars the matching Panel fluted knobs were fitted to. Cobra Restorers in the States used to stock both fluted knobs but they don't stock the Panel knobs any longer. I know that Superformance manufacture their own, but I understand they don't randomly supply to the public- only to Superformance owners? I contacted Gerry Hawkridge along time ago and he was a bit hit and miss as to when he'd be getting them in and what the cost would be. Can anybody advise?

    Many thanks

    Gary

    Hi Gary,
    Try Vintage and Classic Lucas Car Spare Parts and Accessories from the UK As far as I'm aware the engraved knobs are no longer made, but you can engrave that yourself.

    Clive, been down that route - it aint cheap, unless you're an engraver. problem is because the surface isnt flat.

    Gary, look here:

    Allen,
    can you sign up onto my dash knobs thread - link above. i need a single point of reference to keep things manageable.

    i'll be finalising things around mid-Jan time so theres plenty of lead time for interested people to post up.

    cheers,
    Kevin

    btw - i wont be making money on this, i'm not an entrepreneur!

    Thanks everyone for contributing to this thread

    Kevin W- I have 'signed up' to your buying bid- thankyou.

    Who in the States are you planning on approaching? I only ask because I have already been in contact with Cobra Restorers. They have informed me that they still sell the Wiper knobs, but can't get the engraved Panel knobs any longer. I wasn't aware of Finish Line selling them either?
