    It looks like it should go on the left side of the rear of the roof trim, but where would the indicator trumpet go?

    From the part # it appears to be from a later car, certainly not from a early D. It's painted so it's not an external part. My guess is that it's part of the interior heating/ventilation system of a late D.

    Maybe ... just ahead of the roof chip holder on an ID Normale, which is why it's painted and not bright metal. (I assume it's steel and not just the regular ID part painted black???) A rare model even when new as there were obviously not enough cheapskates around who didn't find owning such a poverty pack something of an embarrassment. Probably also why it's still NOS and not on a car.

    Also, DM prefix part numbers often seem to be ID parts, but that's far from being a statement based on an analysis of all available part numbers!

    ID Normale, roof finisher ahead of cornet, left side.

    DM854-76a. DM indicates early ID. 800s were body parts. The a suffix means not the first part. DM854-76 was for the Luxe model.

    As soon as I saw the part number on the bag I looked up the 1957 ID19 parts book. Not there. Then the 1958 ID19 parts book, and there it was.

    Nice one Roger and David, I guess a little esoteric for the rest of us

    We could keep this thread going with similar... first with correct answer has a turn. To kick things off an easy one.

    Q. Where on a D is there a part made of wood?

    Cheers

    Below the seat between the runner and the floor on pre 1967 IDs. Both French and Aussie, not Slough as far s I know.
    A wedge shaped piece.

    Wood on a D - if you count what seems to be millboard as being 'wood', then behind the mount on the outer sill for the rear door stays.

    Otherwise I can only think of Harley's 'special' front roll bar bushing!

    Yikes!! I'm already out of my depth, not the answer I had in mind but no doubt correct anyway...

    Let's see if anyone else can get to my original thought before I hand it over

    Early Slough Deesses had a wooden piece on each side at the front with a hole in it, covered with metal, between the two halves of the bumper. Towing eyes.

    He's thinking the original center armrest that slips down between the two seats most likely

    That'd be it. The armrest doubles as a home for white ants.

    Well that went well, I had no idea there would be so many possibilities - the question would have to be carefully re-written, maybe to exclude the early cars.

    The answer I was looking for was the leading edge of the internal C-Pillar trim.

    I'm handing this over to Roger Wilkinson because he correctly identified Shane's initial question.

    Wood on a D? That would be the after-market hinge support at the bottom of the A pillar ! (To be fair this was not a much of a botch as it looks, before the photo was taken the timber was properly located with self tappers)

    NB This is NOT my DS and the actual car is no longer on the road.

    Here's one that might have people scratching there heads (if Richo doesn't give it away. I have no doubt he pulled this part from his cars when he restored them). As far as I know it would be common across all D's regardless of year.

    Slough ID's (early ) also had a wooden dash board. lhs2 has one. Made of a similar slab of wood to that used in a slough traction!

    How cool is that, a bit of wood with a part number - I wonder if you can get them as NOS



    Could be a very enlightening thread, I'm stumped with Shane's pic, looks like a bracket the would hold a rubber hose but maybe exclusively on a BVH car?

    I believe it may now be available as repro, but in plastic with the the grain printed onto it.

    NFI about Shane's part though.

    OK, without going out to the car and looking - a bracket for the height control lever rod under the front seats running across to the left hand side?
