    That's great! Glad to see them in production.

    I saw the prototypes several weeks ago they looked good.

    I was considering taking the centre piece from my series 2 steering wheel to see if this could be reproduced.

    They are there but I only see four of the round bezels and the MAP light is not one of them. There does not appear to be the bezel for the heater control. Or are the pictures simply wrong.

    Map/panel

    Hi all SAOCA members,
    I have the dual panel/map bezel on my series II. I have to say though some of them have started to get small cracks in them so who knows how much longer I will have this special bezel.
    Also Im looking for the collar that goes around the steering wheel. if anyone knows of where I may find a replacement for mine I would greatly appreciate it. This is a result of a thirty five year old vehicle that has seen its share of the sun. Thanks in advance.

    Not all of the cars had the dual panel/map on them. I have one on mine I could take it to Kip motors to see if they can use it. I live close by.

    The four you see are correct for most applications, but specifically for the Series 3. The Series 3 had a map light with a switch on the housing - Series II's had the combined toggle switch.

    As Steve Kirk says, now that they have the design they can churn out whatever you want it to say.

    Are the bezels being reproduced suing a screen print for the lettering or is the lettering engraved/cast into the back of the bezel? If printed i am sure that any combo of text could be used.

    Have not rec'd my package yet so can't answer, but they told me it would be an EXACT reproduction, which means it would not be silk-screened.

    Still, how hard would it be now for them to simply engrave a different word?
