    Yes, hats off to you Nick.

    Hows the HVAC? Mine was working perfectly until yesterday when the clock decided to re-set itself again!

    Total devotion to detail.
    Having purchased only 2 weeks ago a 1994 348 GTB with 21k Klms on her.
    Exterior perfect but need help for restoring the interior,hence my interruption sorry.
    Wanted to find the right products to start this restoration myself.
    Cheers John
    No problem John. Hope you find what you need. Good luck with the car and hope you enjoy it. Nick.

    HVAC powered up ok but not fully tested it yet. I dont anticipate any issues. Do you think you may have a slight connection problem with the plug on the back of the panel which may cause a brief loss of power?
    I had a similar problem when I first got the car. I could wiggle the wiring on the back to create the issue. I pulled the HVAC panel apart and cleaned what I could while I was at it but Im sure I had identified the problem with the plug before I stripped it down. Here are a few old pics anyway.

    I think it must be as the remaining parts wern't as bright as they normally are. I need to whip it back out again anyway as my hazard flasher isn't flashing.

    I had the flashing clock too...i believe it was the block connecting to the unit. A quick clean to improve the contacts was all i needed. .
    Nick great work. Destickying the interior is exceptional detail👍
    A 348 is like Marmite, you love it or hate it. Boy do I love it!

We had enough hardener in stock as John had previously done a large batch of phone covers for a company but he used all the lacquer so I had to buy that.
    Around 80 inc. vat. It is a nice product though. Any 2k thinners should work fine. Advice from there supplier.

    Thanks Nick for the information.

    I have purchased all three components from here:

    http://www.mallabandfactors.co.uk/

    All three items after some discount were 178.54 delivered. I think I have enough to do all the interior items about 100 times.

    Just used it on the interior door handles and it looks perfect. I did an extra one so that I can give it the scratch test after it hardens.

    Great Terry. I don't feel so out in the cold now as someone else has dared to use soft touch. Hope it works out for you. Sounds positive so far.
