If you want to run the copper wires you will need to upgrade to a more robust ignition unit with an external "box" like Crane, or run points/condenser. Pertronix/Powerspark type magnet units are inexpensive and usually work fine as long as you follow all the fine-print instructions. Things like polarity specific unit, do not leave key in ON position, and do NOT use copper wires. The carbon core wires you noted should work fine with the magnet unit, and not damage its delicate electronics.

today on the road again, about 60 km
runs perfect
with the copper wires, they are new and with silicon around
asked someone with 50 years experience, he said no problem
so we will see
a new set is not more expensive then shipping from england

Hallo
so today after work i looked behind the dashboard
chaos pur....
i made a picture from the old key switch on the dash panel from behind
no wire on the IG point
i take my voltmeter to look if the switch will work
it works
i got the car without a key, but with the number on the switch i got 2 for 10 pounds.
so i took a wire to the relay in the toolbox and fixed it
now i can start the car with the key in teh old switch
one more step to an original like car ;-)

i got a old dashpanel on the bay
i took off the bad paint and cleand it perfect,
next step will be to chrome the outside it with this here,
https://www.tifoo.de/selber-verchromen
not perfect but cheap
i will see next days how it works
then paint it black or bronce

i don t like my hyzard and directionswitch below the dashboard
i don t need the fog light and the dashboard light swith on the panel.
so i want to change this
i have seen a electronic hazard and direction light part to use standard switches like this here
see picture
you get it on-off and on off on
i will paint it black or iw ill print a black new knob

crazy ?!
12 Euros with shipping, some work and fun, and perhaps a better solution then this horrible thing under the dash

also i will try to fix the dashlamp near the steering with small led lamps like the picture not with the original screws, this position is perfect for this lights for the driver to see it.
no new holes in the dash, could be change without damage something

so it should look like mostly original but with the features for driving today.

if you don t like it write it, some other good ideas ?????

the dashboard in the car will stay as it is
i will get a second one... ;-)

so today
weather not to fine
so work in the garage
i take a picture from the dashboard

make a snap and load it to inkscape
i take the original dimension at the car, wide and high
in incscape i change the snap to the dimension i need
then to svg then to png
just fast and dirty but enough for me??

then look to the web how to print it
and found a program to print it as a poster in original dimension.
https://praxistipps.chip.de/bild-auf-me ... ehts_50236

then i cut it a half
then I cut this one so it almost fits.
then I take old thin wood and cut out a half.
then the other one.
in the middle I use hot glue to join the two parts.
this is enough to make a cut, then veneer and stain and varnish
then insert the newly made middle section and so on....

the cut in the middle for the dash panel is a little bit to big,
so i have to think about how to fix it
forgot that there a screws to fix

i find a solution

i paint the dash panel again and put it in the printer case at 50 degrees
now i have tot wait for both parts

I'm surprised it was accurate! Photos always have barrel distortion and perspective errors. I'm glad it worked.

I cut the thin wood until it was okay.
the paper was too shaky

so the veneer is now glued on too

but what colour i should take

the dark one from the round piece
or something between
?????

silky lustre or high lustre

so a lot of questions

here the old engine mount rubbers
both of the top, there the washer was missing, so that s the reason for engine to low
so i counldn t use the hand crank

now it is ok :bow:

so today i got the 5/16 tap to make the new special nuts for the engine mount
i make them and put all together as it should be
now i can start the engine with the handcrank :lol:

next i wanted to make a holder for the two hanhart stopwatches.
i took stainless steel, but no good idea to fix the watches
two drills are now damaged....
so i took my computer to design a holder
the first one fits not perfect, a little bit to small
the second one is in the printer for the next 2 hours.
here the 3d picture

i will fix it in the middle over the dashpanel and use the loxx fasteners which are there
so i can take them away really easy

Nice work. I would be very interested to find out how you got on with the chrome plating solution. Professional Cr(VI) plating is very expensive these days and I have quite a few small parts to plate. Cr(III) is a potential solution (sorry, bad pun), but it depends how it looks and how durable it is.

Hallo
it works perfect on small parts
i have plated in the morning some door handle for a Ford Model A
they have been terrible, i have brought them away, so no picture in the moment
but it works perfect on brass.
:thumbs:
i have it from tifoo.de, the electric parts from the bay
i have bought 1l but only used 10 ml or less
3 door handle
dash panel outside
some screws.

just in the beginning

perhaps i try to plate my abs parts, there is a paint to use it....

so pictures later
