10mm x 10mm sounds right, the hessian backing was also a feature.

Thanks Guys, no LEDs, I think Errol62 might be close though. I did have to disconnect the horn because it would go off randomly when turning corners.
Looks like a rebuild and rewire of the column is in order

Weird intermittent issue.
I have an aftermarket wiring loom, one from the USA (one with the writing on the wires).
Everything works, the problem is with the indicators.
Short trips they are fine, on longer trips or intermittent driving throughout the day after a couple of hours they will stop flashing and just stay on, then later in the trip or the following day they work normally.
I have tried 3 or 4 different flasher cans and all do the same.
The flasher cans do not get hot, I have changed flasher cans when it happens to no effect.

Thanks Errol62
7  Technical Board / Modification Help / The "best" way to adjust a HR steering box. on: May 25, 2017, 08:43:11 PM
I know there are a couple of methods aside from the factory method, but what is the best way to adjust to get the best steering response without destroying the box?
One video (generic box) says to undo the locknut, tighten screw until it just stops, lock off and drive.
Another video says to undo the lock nut and tighten the screw in 1/4 turn increments, test drive, adjust again until optimal.
I haven't read the factory way yet as I don't have a HR manual, but I want to know the best method that is going to give me some confidence in my steering.

As always, thanks Ken.
14  Technical Board / Modification Help / Stub Axle ID on: May 11, 2017, 05:19:20 PM
I have a pair of stub axles that I believe are HR, marked 26019 and 26020, another page IDs them as HR but I want to double-check.
Also, will my current LH Torana discs and calipers bolt up or do I need to look for something else?

TIA

Yep, Fitch was the first place I went.

Thanks DJ, I checked in at one of the few Clarks in SA, the range was crappy and the salesman told me that they weren't oil resistant.

Still looking.
19  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: carpet on: May 01, 2017, 01:23:53 PM
A thick underlay helps, my carpet is a little baggy but not too bad.
Some heat and weights will help shape it, careful with the heat though as you can easily singe the carpet. One idea I want to try but haven't is an electric blanket on the floor then carpet over top, then weight bags to shape the carpet.

Aside from all of that, you can only go multi-piece custom carpet  Undecided
20  General / General Board / Thomas Red Six rocker cover PVC grommet on: April 23, 2017, 03:41:06 PM
I have bought an off the shelf valve cover grommet for my Thomas cover but it is way too loose, does anyone know where to get a proper one?
The previous owner of the rocker cover solved the problem with silicone that has since split and come away.
