Default bonnet release knob

this is the original ss80 bonnet release knob which comes on the bonnet.very few cars still has the original plastic monogram on top of it.
this photo i took of a single owner car which is not being used for the past 3 years because the owners are abroad.
If any guys visiting the scrapshops please keep an eye out for this item

Default like to share one of mine

read all your post and i am happy that there are so many admirers for this beauty.. i was taken over by such useful information shared by you all. i would like to share this one with you all. i have this car from past 18 years or so and i have grown up with it. the car is of sept 1985 make and came with the 'apple red' paint as they called it. i took some task of bringing it to originaly as much as i could and this is what it looks now. the engine work has been got done by me at aroung 1.25KMS. Apart from that every thing else is as original as i could have laid my hands. the sealed stanely head light were on the car and it had worked for almost for 22 years without any problems. it got burnt due to a minor switch problem and i have replaced this one... will answer any quiry of any one interested to know about my car.

hi have your oversprayed the paint, I though the original paint was less deeper with a hint of orange, but i could be mistaken. Beautiful car, my friend, there are many many admirers here believe me. I cant stop drooling just looking at the bodyline.

Lovely! Especially the front view- looks just like some period brochure/ad! Is the front grille new? 'looks flawless!

As for the colour, I believe it was called "Tomato red", slightly lighter in shade. But nevertheless, red suits this model better than any other colour!

are you sure it was called ""tomato red'' or was it "'apple red"'?

Oh my goodness this car makes me jealous. Its very very well maintained. Got my eyes on the thin crome sticker on the back. I lost mine during paint job. Any body have any idea for an alternative for this kind of lookalike sticker?
