NOS Choke Cable

Post by apblake »

Hi All - anyone know where I can find a NOS choke cable (or a used one in good condition)? My car has a modern repro and the plastic is hurting my eyes every time I see it next to the original heater valve control cable…

This can be sorted easily.

Get the knob blasted with fine glass bead, it will be pretty much impossible to tell it from an original. You will have to repaint the lettering though.

Or scuff it up with a bit fine wire wool or some 1200 grit wet and dry
