    Default early ID

    OK I will jump in !

    The parking light switch on the extreme left of the dash panel....they had an arrow in the centre used to indicate whether the left side or the right was illuminated...the parking light was mounted on the top of the centre pillar...a vertically "split" acorn shaped lens that showed white light to the front and a red behind.

    Am I right ?

    Or do you allude to the embossing passern on the aluminium switch panel itself ? Early ID s pattern was stylised chevrons ( long low zig zags )rather than the parallel horizontal lines seen here...

    Or do you mean the height control level being over on the left ?..the painted panels on the quadrant..the white triangular patterns for 1 up and 2 up look "different" to me..maybe just the passing of the years !

    Impressive ... You picked lots more than me (you must have good eyesight w!!).... I reckon I'd need to knowledge of buttercup Bob to pick that much.

    So how can we tell the cars just been painted and not quite re-assembled yet then

    Are we guessing from the interior picture here?

    If so has it got to do with the colour of the door trim and the colour of the actual door inside?

    Im probably completely wrong?

    The height control lever from being on the wrong side screams "extremelly early" possibly '56 model. I thought it was only DS's (no ID's) that had this problem, and only the first few slough built cars.

    You can tell it's been just freshly painted but not quite finished as the rubber weather strips haven't yet been fitted to the outside of the window. You can see the holes the clips press into.

    Yep it was a bit of an opportunity to play with the new toy, I have the photos in raw format (8mb) to experiment with later.

    Default Height control lever

    My ID is a 1960 French built model, and it has the height control lever on the 'wrong' side. Guess it ain't just the VERY early models saddled with it. What colour was the exterior?. Interested to know, given that the interior door panel appears to be Quandong - same colour as my exterior!.

    regards,
    Keith

    Default early ID

    All first nose cars had the height control on the left side...not converted for RHD at all.

    Second nose ( rubber tipped bumpers ) had the height control swapped to the right side installed with a transfer lever down below the front seats.

    What really impresses is the level of trimming on LHD Pallas trimmed cars with stainless and carpet covers over this painted quadrant.

    Well it's like this. When I had the rust in the bootlid repaired, Brenton (the Panel Bloke) had a touch of brain fade. (He normally works on Minis!)

    He offered to change them round, but I reckon it was more fun to leave them that way, claim it as a cunning aerodynamic aid, and see how many people noticed. You're number 7, all the people on the run included!

    Anyway, I reckon it makes Moby stand out from the crowd!

    Cheers, Pottsy

    Hi Pottsy

    Good to hear you had a good run and hope you got rid of that nasty wine you had in Wagga.

    My uncle finnaly made it to ACT on Sunday after some interesting times with his D. The worst bit was when he put a BIG dint in the drivers rear door backing into the carport to bleed the brakes. Now we know how to remove door handles trim and moldings as well as how to panelbeat door skins

    I realy wanted to tell why the shevrons were on upside down on Moby but thaught the pleasure should be all yours.

    I hope the co-driver enjoyed himself to the max and helped you get rid of that reoccurring wine.

    Now that you ask, yes we did get home without the help of a support vehicle.

    Cooch

    Cooch. Glad you made it OK.

    The Co-driver has been dragged over to the dark side. When I left his home on Monday afternoon he was trying hard to convince Rosemary that he needed to have a Citroen! (He hasn't decided between DS, CX or 2 CV yet!) And drinking the wine from the Diff seems to have (a) made the car lighter and (b) clouded the passenger's jusdgment!

    Are you going to have another go at putting the photos up? When you open the reply window, scroll down to the "manage attachments" button. Pressing this will open a new window with three lines each with a "Browse" button beside it. Press the "browse" button and select the picture you want to post. (It must be less than 100K in size) Once the picture's file name is in the little window to the left of the button, press the "Upload" button over on the right.

    Once you "Submit Reply" your picture should appear at the bottom of your post.

    Go on, have another go.

    I sympathise totally Cooch. Computers should all be taken out and humanely shot!

    If this works, here's one for you, just to annoy you further!


    If your upload is successful, the file name should appear as a "Current Attachment" just below the line of three "browse" buttons.

    Cheers, Pottsy

    Cooch, I suspect your image size - uploading via the forum will only allow images up to 100kb, your camera images will no doubt be much bigger. You will need to re-size. I know you want to do this yourself, but if you need help email the pics to me and I'll re-size for you

    WTF happened to my photos?
    WoooHoooo just look at this will you. My neighbours computer whiz son was home yesterday and I grabbed him to give me some pointers. GreenBlood you are right my picks are to big and need re sizing. I will have a go again later.

    When the whiz kid sent the photo he made it smaller as in kb and he did it on his computer not mine, I do not know how to do this on my computer.

    My photos are in a Kodak Easyshare program and I don't think this program shrinks photos. So I may have to wait untill he comes back home from Wagga were he lives.

    GreenBlood and Pottsy if you PM me your Postal Address I will post you a CD with the pix for you to have a look at.
