Hi chaps,

Does anyone sell a nice pair of turned aluminum indicator talks to replace the plastic ones in my 2012 Plus 4?

I fitted aluminum stalks from Leven to my TVR replacing the nasty plastic Vauxhall Cavalier ones that TVR used, it made a huge difference to the look and feel of the switch gear so I want to give Monty something similar.

The stalks are the only remaining element in Monty's lovely classic interior that gives the game away the car is actually more modern than it first appears oldgit

I have a vague feeling I saw an advert for aluminum stalks in the back of a Morgan club magazine I was flicking through at Techniques one day, I think the supplier was German but I don't have the magazine and I can't find anything online so a link would be much appreciated.

Unless I dreamt it of course confused2

Cool, thanks TBM, much appreciated the setup looks really nice.

I prefer the knurled type, I don't need the polished stainless steel cowl as Monty's cowl is already nicely trimmed in leather, but I will need the coloured leather switch gaitors in Yarwood 'Stone' to match.

So thats 340 Euros and the intermittent wiper function is lost, they do look lovely but I'm not keen on losing a useful wiper function for such a high price frown

Is this the only option out there?

Morganpark in Hamburg sells a different approach. And they offer the intermittent possibilty as an extra (via a seperate switch though):

https://www.morganpark.de/shop/

I think you have to get in touch with them for details!

You can always wire in a 'smartscreen' - but it's yet more money. Smartscreen

I have one on my '72 - gives me a stack of variable wiper options and also a wash/wipe option. Find it really useful, especially now I've bypassed the dash switches and installed a wiper stalk....

As numog expained: Morganpark also offers intermittent possibilty as an extra. It ist the last part of the original stalks and has to be fixed somewhere under the dash.

IIRC I payd 35€ for the intermittent switch some years ago. But to be honest I did´t use it often.

Morganpark sells the knurled type.

Since I ride with gloves for better grip on my Morganpark steering wheel, I put some clear shrink tubing over the knurling, since the knurling has the effect of a file on my gloves.

I've scoured the Morganpark website but drew a blank, do you have a direct link?

Thanks, Dave.
