I had also the feeling to sit a little bit higher after renewing the seats with leather. At the same time it feels a little bit harder,more stable but not uncomfortable. I made the seats myself, so i can be sure the foam is still the same, nothing changed or new padded.  So the reason must be that leather is just a little bit stronger than cloth. But i have no problem to get my 1,78 m in. Only sometimes to get 1,78m out but that must be the age ;-)

What nice interiors!

When I sat in the car first time after getting it back from the upholsterer I was wondering how high I was sitting, but I was not sure in the changing, because I had not sat in the car for a long time. Maybe I lost some centimeters above my head because of the new cushion in the seat but I still have some space (I am 1,85). Not so much, but I still have to find the right position for driving when the interior is fully completed.

I am thinking of getting a D-type steering wheel (as Oetker suggested) to gain more leg room, but quite rare to find. I have some leather left from the upholsterer so it would be good to buy a used and worn steering wheel (hopefully cheaper than a new one) and have it covered with the same brown leather as the dashboard has. In another post GP mentioned a Sparco (353 if I remember well) which is very nice, but a new one is very expensive and of course not brown.

I have found the style what I like and matches to the car (I think) but not D-type... Undecided

Have a closer look at the Momo.
You will see the hart of the steering is out of the middle.
That give almost the same effect driving in a straight line.  Wink

My 2.2 has it to.



Ooops...Needt to loose some weight I think, because otherwise I want fit at all in the car in time.

Sometimes fixing something is not too comfortable. I know it from my profession...

Do you think that the Momo Corse that was attached in my former post has the same effect? Maybe yes. It would cost about €30, and need retrimming. If the seller still has it...

Make the picture bigger and measure.
I did, and I am pretty certain it is.

Yes, you are probably right. It's diameter is 320mm, so the upper part is about 170mm and the lower part is  about 150mm. But my measurment may contain some parallax fault...

Thanks for the info.

I have to tidy up the fuel lines in the engine bay but I can not find suitable plastic hose clamps to the front edge of the hatch where the hose goes from the fuel tank to the fuel pump. Is it possible to find some on e-bay?

That's ok. I could not find any cable tie with mounting point, so many thanks.
Unfortunately I cannot see the hole size of the mounting point. I will contact the seller...

I did not need them yet, but looks good for the front to.
Will order some for myself as well.

Although I did use rivets on the self adhesive ones as an insurance policy.

Herman,


I like to have some also.
Can I buy these from you dividing the costs of delivery?
