Default Walnut Accessories - new colour pics/and order details

all orders to Simon at bg3711@yahoo.com

Please note that I have absolutely no business connection with Simon who is located in Bullgaria. I approached him initially to ask if he could make a close match to our Rover 75 walnut OEM trim which became very popular and since then have made myself available as a go between when members ask for new pieces to be made sending him measurements, templates, ideas for him to consider and actual OEM trim where necessary to help him match the colours.

Simon is very accomodating and has made a few bespoke items for members, he will supply single pieces from the main kit if you dont need all the items, please e mail him with your requirements and to get a price.

Complete kit £53 plus £10 delivery ( available in Walnut, Light Oak, Black Oak, Piano Black, Rhodium)

Schematic below last updated 24/11/2016



The schematic contains most but not all of what Simon produces and details of the additional items are below




NEW Also available Footwell trims, number 64, cost £25 per pair plus £4 delivery.









Fitting Instructions for all items:

The temperature in your vehicle must be above 21C. Leave the panels in the vehicle to acclimatise.

Thoroughly clean the surface of the dashboard or parts onto which the styling panels are to be fitted. Use a grease remover like T-Cut. Do NOT use any solvents.

The preparation is very important . All silicone, wax or other polish previoulsy applied MUST be removed.

Carefully remove one of the panels from the backing sheet, without touching the adhesive, using a hair dryer warm the adhesive.

Gently position the panel into place. ( moistening the adhesive in one corner helps with positioning ) Press firmly onto the surface especially at the edges and corners.

Warm the panel with a hair dryer. DO NOT OVERHEAT and continue to apply pressure using a soft clean cloth.

Leave the panels for 24 hours. They can the be cleaned and polished using a proprietary wax furniture polish.


Gallery:

Below are pictures of most of the items actually fitted to the car and for the most part will be the walnut finish. If you have other items and are willing to share your pictures please add them to the thread and I will udate the gallery as and when.

Door Cappings

If you do not want the holes, Simon will make them without for you if you ask him but you will then definitely need adhesive on the capping.

The first picture shows the capping placed right against the top of the door card which is where I think it looks at its best, however if you place it there note that there is a small recess where the top of the doorcard meets the “ velour “ and you may well have to put either adhesive or double sided tape into the recess to hold the top of the capping in place because when you stick down the bottom part of the capping it tends to pull the top out slightly due to the curve on the doorcard

In Walnut



An option is to fit it just below the recess to avoid the above issue



Back door fitted at top



Back door fitted below recess



And finally one with holes and cappings to hide the screws



As with all Simons products the price is reflected by the amount of resin used and these are larger than average pieces and work out at approx £15 each, but he will sell the front and back as separate items should you want to buy the front only and maybe add the back at a later date

Speaker tweeters (4)

In Walnut





Speaker tweeters in chrome





Hazard switch chrome ( inner )

That looks great, Rob.

His stuff looks much better than that from the Walnut Dash Company - and he is very easy to deal with.

I wonder if this guy could do a walnut trim to cover the centre cubby lid. There is a 3D element to the lid, though - probably very difficult or impossible to manufacture in some kind of a stick on trim.

The rear ashtray looks really neat with the alternative cutout. What's the story behind it? Are they available to buy as a straight replacement? :lol:

the powerfold switch is one of the options and there is one on its way to me, all i need now is the switch !

He also sent me the rear ashtray cover in error and there is a storage cover on its way to me too. Mines a facleift and has always had the storage box rather than the ashtray, presumably its a straight swop for the ashtray

I enquired about the cubby lid having seen the one on bay but seller says it will not stick to the material it is made from
