I received the quote for the transfers, $22cdn per set if I order 10 sets, plus whatever it costs to ship to anyone interested. I will probably wait till after Christmas to order. Ben, if you get a chance, can you comment on what the actual words are on the transfer sheet?

Here's the proof I printed at home to verify that the size-scaling was right before giving the approval for the final product. Basically, what you see on this sheet is exactly what you get in white on a dry-transfer sheet. I also had no problems with polyurethane covering the transfers or with the poly damaging them. I can post a pic of the dashboard later, however I'm still fine-sanding (or was before I got mired in the moving to a new house process) it so it doesn't look like much at the moment.

I don't mind not having the arrows, but this might not be the product for you if you're going for concours detail.

For my Sprint (Federal) I would need the word 'window' to be plural, in addition to the words 'heater' and
'choke'.

along with WINDSHIELD and LIGHTS

If what Greg mentioned and these could be added - I'd be in for 2 sets.

Thanks for the photo Ben, it will help with making sure we are getting what we all require.

I'd like to try and capture all of the words/symbols we can. I'd like this to be a 'universal' set of transfers to cover all that is required. There's not much point if we get 95% labeled and end up with an unidentified switch.

If someone with a +2 dash will supply a photo of the arrows mentioned, with a scale (ruler) laid beside them for reference i will see if they can be replicated.

I have added 'windows, heater, choke, windshield, lights' to the list.

Thanks All,
Scott

I love this forum...thanks Ben.
Im in for a set as well assuming those additional words can be added to make a universal set and can be used on an elan s3 or s4 dash. Looks like a stellar job. :D

Thank you

The sheet I purchased from Golden Gate Sevens some years ago also has FAST, FUSES, PULL, FOG, CIGAR, DRIVING, ON, BRAKES (plural), and WINDSCREEN in addition to the others mentioned. Perhaps this was to include sevens and other Loti.

Also needs Headlamp (singular)... maybe my "s" fell off

Put me down for a set, thanks for doing this.

I think my +2S 130/5 has an original dash (I've had it for 36 of its 44 years) and it has:
HOT WARM COLD OFF SCREEN INTERIOR CHOKE REAR SCREEN BRAKE FAIL HAZARD REAR SCREEN PANEL WASH WIPE CIGAR FAN WINDOW (2 off) HAZARD PARK OFF ON DRIVING LAMPS

Hi Mike,

Can you edit your reply to a list format? See below for an example of what I mean. If I can keep them tied together on the transfer sheet it will make for straight labelling as they can be applied in one go.


hot warm cold
off
screen
interior


or is it

hot warm cold off
screen
interior


Thanks,
Scott

Here it is! Glad I checked, I had given details from my +2S which I think has a replacement dash, sorry.

The +2S is first and the original +2S130 below - just before I refinished it

I have a photo of another 130/5 that has the same 'DEFROST FAST' wording so I think it's right.

Also, the fusebox cover wasn't shown and it has the word fuses on it.
