    Chassis number cover

    Can the perspex cover over the chassis number on the bulkhead be replaced. Mine has completely disintegrated and at a cursory first look it seems to be attached fairly well (what's left of it) to the surround.
    Not a very excitng question, but any help appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I suspect you will have to replace the entire plastic scuttle panel. 35 from memory?

    Def scuttle panel replacement , the new one will do just the same over time.

    Better off trying to trim it off really neatly and possibly cutting a proper bit of thin perspex and fitting it in the same place.

    Thanks for the ideas, 35 isn't too bad for the whole panel, but a bit steep for a 4" bit of perspex. Might try the Blue Peter method first.
    Cheers
