    Default Renault part wanted, borrow, buy or steal

    Brisbane Reno huggers..

    I am looking to vacuum form a new clear plastic cover for the FLORIDE dash ornament but I need to borrow an existing one so I can make a plaster or rubber mould. It doesn't matter if it's faded or broken as I can sort the rest.

    Anyone local?

    Didn’t you just score one of those from Sarosa in Melb?
    I got one, yes only one, not three or four. Good luck finding one local.

    Yes I scored the name plate and surround but not the bubble, they are all fried from the Aussie sun.

    Graham,

    Do you have access to a Vacuum Former?
    PM me if you need help with one.

    G'day Dan, I was gonna knock something up for this once-only use and run it from my compressor inlet, but if you have a better offer I am all ears.

    Not sure what the Floride S has I'll look. Guess it won't just say "Floride" though. I know my Floride doesn't have one just a hole where some one added 3 gauges.

    Yeah true that. I'm thinking I will just make a freehand mock-up out of plasticine and take a casting off that. Seems like a lot of trouble to go to but that's how I roll (sometimes ) when I can be bothered, which is hardly ever.

    Graham,

    Let me know when you are ready. I have access to one, that will mould 3mm acrylic .... We/I, can do it one afternoon after work.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I could do with one for my Caravelle. Are you interested in selling?

    I have a Caravelle one from a R1131 Caravelle. For a sample, but it is 1963.

    Sorry it isn't for sale.... tis for mine which I hope will be ready soon(ish) after a major rebuild. I have a hidden HiFi set up to fit and this will be a nice touch..

    Hmm, that'll do for a start. I'll make a plaster cast from this and work from there. Dan I'll be in touch when my 0.5 acrylic sheet arrives from our friends in the orient. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Clear-PE...53.m2749.l2649

    Thanks all
