I am in the process of rebuilding a +2S130/5 and wonder if there is anyone in the Hereford area with a similar car, I didn't take sufficient photos of the under bonnet area when stripping and would like to look at where cables etc run
Thanks david b

Hi David,
I'm about as far from the Hereford area as you can get, but I'll reply and pop this to the top. Photos of my +2 won't help you. Everything is on the wrong side.

...Shirley :twisted: there's someone with a RHD +2S130/5 that can lend a hand.

Hi David
I took quite a few underbonnet photos of my '73 JPS Plus 2 before selling it a couple of years ago as it had never been restored, so had all the original brake pipes and looms / clips etc,. all in the original positions. The attached photos show 'the big' picture of what it looked like, but there are many more close-ups.

PM me if you want the detail ones. I do have an earlier Plus 2 if you want to come and inspect....I'm between Ross-on-Wye and Gloucester, so not far away. The earlier car has many similarities in terms of pipe and loom positioning, and it may just help as a memory jogger.

Possibly the lack of response id due to the uninformative thread title? +2 will not exactly help anyone doing a search for something specific in the future, either.
