|Is the red piping used on this correct or should it be black on the dark red?|
|It should match the paint color. Looks like a nice car, except the JC Whitney steering wheel cover.|
|I agree with you George. For a car that's not a daily driver, you would think the steering wheel would look original. The wrap could be covering a cracked outer rim. With the beautiful work done on the car, kinda strange he covered that wheel. PJ|
|....Wow...that is a beautiful car.... that deserves to go high.... Putting a leather (?) steering wheel cover on was pretty common, even on good wheels.....could be tan, but if that is the only thing, certainly easy to come off......
|You guys usually do a much better job of knocking a car than this! What about the sill plates and the "new" brake drums?|
|Or the body colored dashboard...|
|Hmmmm....now we have two threads on this TF. |
David, the red TF did come with a red dash, as well as a biscuit like color. Red dash would have red leather interior, so here this car varies from original.
I still maintain that it is a very very nice car, well represented by the seller. If it goes for a good price that bodes well for all TF owners.
|My TF was originally red with red interior and red dash. I am going to retrim it with biscuit coloured leather because even though not original I prefer the colour. What colour should the dash then be?|
The dash colour would then go to Biscuit colour.Originally the Dash was slightly a lighter colour compared to the upholstery.
|Red interior, red dash yes. That dash is body color. Not saying it does not look nice, it does, and it is a nice car. If it were my car, I would paint the dash the "correct" color, but it is not my car. |
|Max, here is a pic of an unrestored Sydney TF showing the biscuit dash and upholstery.|
