    Yes that looks great. I think it is the same, the outlet is at the front... will PM you Keiser.

    Heat riser on DA

    I've been trying to remove the heat riser (?) to repair the cracked manifold on my DA. But it looks like it is going to come off in bits as seems fairly welded in place - i'm not liking my chances. Does anyone know if these are available, or does anyone have one they might sell? Any thoughts or suggestions, or am I going to have to resort to making a flat plate to go over the end of the manifold?

    Yes... I wonder if that is related to the unusual gauge setup?? I didn't get as far checking engine numbers - too much else to look at!

    I didn't spot the OD - I didn't know there was even one made for them. What was the unit/manufacturer? Spinneyhill - it went for $80g. (about $53US I think at the moment). That, plus 7.5% commission for Turners efforts!

    Does anyone know what the knob under the steering column is for? My sedans don't have it.

    Recently there was an auction of a collection of fine automobiles just down the road from me. This was amongst them! Very red...not sure how original that colour would be, but a rare beast in NZ. My pockets weren't deep enough.

    Looks like you could be right there Jim...my other has the more common type- I'd never noticed the difference! Hopefully Acuff can sort you out.

    Pete, yours look slightly different at the ends than mine. My moulding goes over the end of the board, whereas yours finishes short - which will make it easier to reproduce, just a flat mat. ('just'!!). Also they don't appear to come right down over the edge, maybe this is because mine in an export model.?? Jim, I get 11mm across the rounded rib...which I think is about 7/16. (That is from low side to low side of rib).

    The last three I've got at the moment Jim, but can get more easily if there's something specific you want. Hopefully between Pete and myself that will give you something to work with. I suppose a plaster cast would get you an exact replica to work from...if we wanted to get really carried away! These are: 18mm across the flat edge piece and 22 from the edge to the big rib. Two shots showing the big rib higher than the flat edge piece and the smaller ribs being level, as mentioned before. Andrew

    Just a few more.. 22mm is the width of the bottom edge flat (to the low point). 13mm across the small ribs.

    Hi Jim. A few more now after giving the system a break. 54mm is the from the edge of the flatter rib at the bottom to the start of the small ones. . Despite the angle of my 'expensive' Vernier the 3mm is pretty much right - had to lean over for the photo. The small ribs are 1mm high. (Apologies for quoting measurements in new money! ) The large ribs are higher than the flat around the edge of the mat, and the small ribs are level with the flat.

    Hi Jim, here are a few shots of mine. I'll get some measurements after breakfast(!) I'll have to do two posts to keep the quality up. Andrew Just found out it won't let me post more...

    DA Running board trim

    I'm tempted by their rubber, but might be expensive to get sent, and as not exact I may as well get something not exact here. There is some boat mat which is similar in Auckland. Hope your boards come out ok, mine weren't ideal either, but will fit and once covered be ok for now.

    That helps a lot John. It looks as if mine might be original then. There seems to be a slight gap between the mudguard/wing and the board anyway (same as mine) so the rib continuing around the corner across the front and back wouldn't matter. It may have had fenderwelt or similar in it. Did you get your kit from Old Era ? The separate pieces sound familiar. (I can't see the point of a fourth piece under the car which isn't seen. Some other cars have four edges trimmed but not the DA as far as I have seen). Your second and last photo also seem to show a piece of fenderwelt sandwiched between the mat and the car body which would make sense, so i'll go with that too. Thanks for those pictures - really useful.
