A mate of mine had one made to spec for a custom build a couple of years ago. Shouldn't be difficult to go that route if you take the old one in, I would've thought. I don't suppose Rimmers list 'em based on what Trikey says!

If you need any type of cable making, speak to Mike Howes at speedycables, those guys can make anything.

(I would look for a part number on your cable Dave, its probably from an Austin Maxi or similar, you know how the parts bins got raided for the V8's)

Default Rain stopped? Play!

Inspired by the excellent December (?) photo in the club calendar, I snapped these between the rainstorms on Saturday. It's a pity I have too many cars and that the Rover can't live under cover, though.
