    Hope this helps. It seems like there are some discrepancies where various instruments are.

    Cheers, Clive

    Love this thread - great work on the new dash! By the way, can I ask where you sourced the original-style Aluminium dash?

    Pedant checking in - just a reminder that S/C cars did not have wiper wash fitted, only the 427 Roadsters, which had a Trico system fitted.....just in case you're interested
    Trico plunger buttons available from Hawk/ebay.
    Correct washer bottles - virtually nil availability.

    Thanks Aaron, it was bought a while ago from the states, wasn’t cheap, but I knew what I wanted.

    Thanks Kev, trust me I know the details, I do have 2 original Trico Bottles but won’t be fitting them as under the bonnet of an AK has no resemblance to the original style cobra hence why my car is bling under the bonnet but understated but original looking externally. The bottles are for the next build, I’m thinking of selling this and bringing in an ERA 289 FIA kit from the states, as I have a ‘66 289 engine under the bench.
    Btw I do have a trico plunger which has been opened up and a micro switch fitting inside to activate the washer jets, watch this space.

    Aha I did look at the ones .. I can't remember where now, but in the US. The pessimist in me assumed they would arrive bent like a banana thanks to the "shipping" companies!

    True - that happened with one of my wheels from Bob @ Vintage .. looked like FedEx had stuck a forklift fork through one of the boxes..
