Down to the "last thing?"

Well at least until I hit another wall.

Need to find or fabricate the round plate with three holes that the turn signal switch attaches to. I have a re pro turn signal switch (what a pricey bugger). If any one has that part of their car apart and can send some pictures of the plate that would be super. A actual plate would be fantastic but probably not to be found.

Next steps are to finish up the exhaust and tackle the interior.

Hope to be done by summer.

Thanks!

Neil,

Are you talking about the plate that is part of the steering shaft and binnacle assembly? I just yesterday covered up the one in my project with the steering wheel, but I happen to have an extra steering shaft with binnacle, etc.

Given that I've ultimately needed every part I let go (like some front turn/fog assemblies), I hesitate to let my steering shaft assembly go. Not because I'll need it to repair a car, but given the track record so far, the one in my car will be impaled through my heart if I don't have a spare.

But.... I've been known to relent.

Lemme go look at what I've got and what condition it's in. And what it will take to remove it.

you can see where the switch goes

Here is a photo of the dash in progress and the shaft with the missing plate. . When I got the car it had no dash at all, just a hole. Sorry about the picture being sideways. I tried to edit to fix without success.

I have a hunch that the plate Neil is referring to is a component of the direction indicator switch (as Danny Wilde pointed out).

The pictures below show what the steering column looks like (in a 2600 Spider -- which is the same as 102 Spider) with the direction indicator switch installed, and a picture of the backside of the switch when it is removed (and the typical cracks in the lever plate that render many of these switches useless).

The switch is a single unit, riveted together. No chance of copying it without great effort. Get e new one (e.g. here or here).

The ones sold by OKP are for the Sprint as the stalk is straight, the spider has a degree of bend at the base of the stalk. I'm not sure if you could bend it without it breaking or risk damaging the plastic plate.

Yeah. Neil, if you have the correct switch, it should just mate up to the end of your column surround, after sliding over the three 4mm studs.
