Rear view mirror for GS
« on: December 26, 2012, 07:47:53 PM »
Hello all
I require a round mirror with broad arrow on it for my GS. If anyone has one even if mirror is broken, I am in the market for one also need blackout switch lever as mine has a poxy bakelite knob.

David,

You could look for a rear view mirror on a post war military Bedford. Some had the broad arrow on their round mirrors.  If no joy, there is one suitable on evil bay USAhttp://www.ebay.com.au/itm/330665247642?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 or a JEEP one from MV Spares is pretty close......

As for the Blackout Light Switch knob: Simply, it is a MK* Jaguar one.

Many and various pieces of tin with wheels.

The bakerlite type was often used, my gunbuggy has one fitted to it, while in service, cheers Dennis

Thanks for all the help, mine has a stove type switch and it looks like it does not belong there. And for the mirror will check it out.
Thanks again
