Re: refurbishment of Alu strips on rocker rails

Hello Tom, do you sand blast them softly and sand them with paper afterwards? I think sand blasting them first would make it easier to get rid of the hard anodized surface. After that saning with paper and polishing with the machine to high gloss finish before anodizing - is this the way? Regards, M...

light knob removal

Hi,

does anybody know how to remove the black plastic knob of the light switch? I removed the little grub screw but the know resists any attempt to get it off. What does the intake of the plastic knob look like? Is it a screw or just a bolt? Is there a special trick or something?

regards, Martin

Indicator switch - automatic return?

At my 250 GTE the lever for the indicator does not return automatically to the neutral position after I finished the turn of the steering wheel. Is this normal/standard or does my indicator switch need repair?

Regards,
