After taking the mick out of mods in the past - I find myself getting bitten by the photo's of the ivory - that's superb. K.
So where do I get the chrome surrounds for the knobs to go with it again?
Am really interested to see the ivory dials as well ( and figure out how to do that one )
Also - I've been digging through the posts trying to find out the part number of the chrome surround for a 5 speed auto gearshift. ( w/s on the right ), but I can't find it now. Any ideas. I've also seen a bit for the centre of the gearbox surround in the shape of the gate to match the walnut - anyone else seen this?
The beast still going - 72K service next week ( AAAAARRRGGHH !! )
and it's making a hell of a noise from the exhaust ( but I can't find any holes in it - I've had it off and it looks fine - I assume some baffles are collapsing ). Otherwise fine.

Looks good! - Picking it up from it's 72K (Argh!) service tomorrow so may just pop into the parts dept and have a go at the ivory heater controls first!
Also going in to find out if I can buy a gearshift surround. The OEM part from Merc like what Greg bought ( Oh the grammar ! ), for £6 seems to be a better bet than the Gencia part for £28 plus postage!. Wonder if I can get the SLK surrounds as well.. hmm...
Anyhow - put it in for a 72K check-over and amused the guy behind the desk. Didn't want to put in the recommended Merc oil in the service cos I got a load of Castrol RS dirt cheap, (0w40 fully synth!), wanted him to change the gearbox oil which is not on the service, and told him that I have just replaced all the brakes with OEM bits so he could leave that out as well! - He offered me a job as a service manager! lol .
