Wanted URGENTLY MK1 Dash Tweeter Grilles

Post by chriscarterstevens »

Hi all.

I have a lovely MK1 GT.

I’m in desperate need of a pair of dash top tweeter cover grilles.

Ideally in brown as mine are brown.

TIA

You may have to get whatever colour you can, and repaint them, many years ago David Rutherford broke a 16TRS with a brown interior.

Any idea how to search people by name here?

I may have a number but I last spoke with him about 5yr ago, he's a funny old guy and didn't seem to be in the best of health then, but it's worth try.

He is on face-book.

Sorry, that made me chuckle. After the end cap for the mirror lever, I can't imagine how a speaker grille is "urgent" (with capitals!)

About as urgent as a Mk 2 clock.... would like to locate the intact mirror lever I'd convinced myself was in the parts pile, but there's still life there - a broken end to twiddle.

Ahh ok, the only Mk1 he had that I saw was a 19RD with grey interior, but he wouldnt part it out.
