Re: Out for a spin in the Laser

Love that view over the long bonnet, I have watched it three times now, with a bit of luck it won't be too long before I am looking out over my own bonnet. :D

Re: vinyl wrap

I have just spoken to my son about the adhesive and he say's that if you get a quality vinyl and he recommends Hexis it will not be a problem.

Re: vinyl wrap

I am thinking of having mine done, my son is co owner of a print and designs company and they have done a couple of cars and they turned out amazing. I think he wants to do mine so he can use it for advertising which is fine by me.

Re: Rear fog light switch illumination

I have solved the mystery of the bulb, both switch's do use capless bulbs, on the pic I posted of the rear fog light plug the actual bulb holder is missing that is why it doesn't extend into the switch. The bulb holder is on a single pin that plugs in.

Re: Rear fog light switch illumination

Just took a couple of pics the top one is for the rear fog lights and the bottom one is for the heated rear window and as you can see the bulbs are different fittings. The heated rear window is a capless bulb but it looks like the other must be capped. http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag113/Ian_F...

Rear fog light switch illumination

Does anybody know the size of the bulb that illuminates the switch and where to get one from, unfortunately there isn't one in it so I can compare it with.

Re: Heater decal update

I`ve got to say I`m amazed at the state of the first one at the top of the page - how on earth does it get that worn as you`d think fingers would touch the knobs (I tried several ways of wording that) not really the decal behind? It`s like Edward Scissorhands`s been at it. New one looks perfect. Th...

Re: Heater decal update

Illumination wise it should be fine, the graphic is printed on a white digital vinyl with clear adhesive (as opposed to grey backed which is for blockout uses). It's also an air release vinyl so you can apply them really easily without bubbles and easy to re-position whilst fitting. In addition to t...

Re: Heater decal

Now then guy's I have searched through my garage and found an old heater control with the original decal on, although it is not in brilliant condition you can still see the fan symbols and arrows so now we should be able to produce a decal as near to the original as you can get. I will keep you info...

Re: Heater unit question

I have just been having a word with my son who produces these decals for me and he is going to change the artwork to sharpen up the fan symbols, one of the issues we had about producing these was a possibility of copyright of the original decal. I have almost sold out so he is making me a new batch ...

Re: How bloody thick?

It always makes me laugh when they say you can't have bull bars on the front of your 4 wheel drive because they could injure a pedestrian, I think if you get hit by a 4 wheel drive the bull bars are the least of your worries. :)
