    Original Dash Knobs - Part 2!

    After a quick catch up with KevD and KevW I’m putting myself forward to organize a new group knobs purchase. I’ve had a long chat with KevW about his experiences on the last group buy and he’s given me some pointers as to how we can make life easier this time hopefully!

    This is for the two black fluted knobs that control the dash dimmer and the wiper switches (see attached pics or Kevs pic on the first group buy) or can be used to control other functions but keep the original look. The only part we need to source from abroad are the knobs themselves so this is what this group buy is for. The switches can be bought from Holden,www.holden.co.uk/, or adapted from other switches if you plan to use the knobs to control other functions. I actually live reasonably close to Holden so what I’ll try to do at some point is drop down to see them and post up some info on what switches they recommend. However those can be sourced direct yourselves without the need to complicate the group buy.

    There are two potential supply sources for the knobs and I’ll check both out to see which way we need to go and get back to you with more info. My plan is to leave this post up for a couple of weeks to make sure anyone interested can jump onboard. Please can you reply to this thread indicating your interest. Once I have numbers interested I’ll work out a price for a pair including a share of customs clearance charges and shipping. I’ll also include P&P to you in the price. I’ll probably add a pound or two to each set just to ensure that all costs are covered. I’ve no interest in making profit personally, (although I hope not to be out of pocket) so if there turns out to be a small profit at the end I will pass that onto the club. The knobs themselves are around $20 per set so shouldn’t work out too much even with the other costs.

    At that point I’ll place the order and pay for the knobs myself. Once they are here I’ll let you know and at that point all of the people on the list can forward payment and I will then send out the knobs to you once payment is received. If anyone drops out for any reason then after a reasonable time I’ll simply advertise any remaining for sale on the site. I’ll probably get a couple of sets extra as there seems to be plenty of interest.

    Hope that’s all ok and makes sense. PM me if not or you have any other questions.

    ANYONE INTERESTED PLEASE CAN YOU ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS THREAD SO I CAN GET AN IDEA OF NUMBERS. CHEERS.
