Swivel Pin for Ashtray

The current achtray swivel pin is not the freshest anymore. This because the fitment is not so tight anymore as it was when new.
Be aware: The original fitting set uses spring washers to give the ashtray the soft resistance when siveling. The disadvantage is, that the spring washers will scratch the surface of the ashtray in such a way, that the item is often not usable for reconditioning.
This swivel pin is made of aluminium and comes with suitable nylock nuts and washers. This gives Your ashtray the 'like new' feeling when positioning.
It is required, to widen the hole to exact(!) 8mm - best to pre drill then to ream the hole up to the exact diameter. this because the hole inthe ashtray is not round anymore after these long years of usage.
With this set Your ashtray can be moved to the desired position with the 'like new' soft resistance without any scratching the ashtray surfase. A instruction manual is included in the set.

HeatShield stainless steel

Heat shield between exhaust silencer and floor pan.
Unipart Number: ACA5170S
This heat shield is made from stainless steel grade A2 and is 1.5mm thick - so it will last very very long....
Additionally the shield is available with several mounting holes. First, just drilled holes, second option with M4 threads and third with UNF10 thread. All these options for the same price. Just put the screws throu the floor pan and that's all.
Other competitor just add some nuts and bolts, and the fixing becomes then a nightmare, because Your hands are too short to grap the screw inside the cab and the nut below outside.
