  1. Thinking restoring an ammeter was easy, sill me ๐Ÿ™ˆ I have finally got there and pleased with the end result, a little patina and fully operational. Some reference images before during and after should anyone fancy doing the same.๐Ÿ‘ Just a original DC40 inspection lamp to to go to complete the set.......
  2. Ron, where did you route the tail lamp/brake light cables? Is there a small hole in the guard underneath of the plate?
  3. What a lovely G3! I can only hope mine is half as nice.....
  4. Looks great Ron, the Simonize wheel silver is great, I use it frequently.
  5. To add my plate sit almost identical to that outlined on Lexโ€™s spare guard.......
  6. I have just checked my orginal rear guard and it does have the top number plate fixing holes close to the rivits, as per Rons. I have now just fitted my number plate in a similar position. looking at the below detailed picture it appears that the rear number plate on both machines leaves quiet a sizeable space between the underside of the mudguard and the tip of the mudguard ๐Ÿค”
  7. Cheers Ron. sorry I donโ€™t know why I ask that question again, too many cocktails last night.๐Ÿ™ˆ Talking of tinware variances I have noticed that the tyre pump retainer, to stop the pump going into the back wheel, appear different on this image to some of the earlier matchless G3โ€™s, I assume there must of been a few variances?
  8. Thanks gents I shall investigate and report back. I do have the orginal guard but rust worm has eaten the number plate area away ๐Ÿ™ˆ hears hoping mine is long enough to accept the number plate ๐Ÿคž Does the base of the number plate over shot the end of the mudguard, please?
  9. Morning all! I have a little time on my hands this weekend so I am going to get the rear number plate fitted. As my rear mudguard is a repro, currently it hasnโ€™t any holds drilled in it for the number plate. Would any of you kind G3 owners be able to guide me on the location of the plate, on the rear guards, please? coincidently, which route should the rear light cable/s take?
  10. Thanks Ron. thatโ€™s really helpful and confirms my suspicion. I just need to get it apart now and clean it up. ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. Tentatively buying up some of the last few missing parts my repro ammeter has arrived.....it has a nice โ€˜lookโ€™ to it but maybe the needle lets it down just a bit.....? After a few hours trawling the net I came across what I hope is a very good authentic alternative. Itโ€™s in need of a clean up and strip down but I am very pleased with it...... Pictures of the G3โ€™s early tank panel appear few and far between the little information I have managed to find shows an ammeter almost identical.......๐Ÿคž
