Is it possible the mysterious rubber on ashtrays was added to stop rattles or squeaks?

Could be?

The ashtray covers sort of 'hover' in the air; they do not make contact with the surround. So they should not squeak. But they might squeak at the hinge in some way I guess.

I guess the only way to see would be to drive the car with the foam removed. If they do squeak it will drive me mad!

No wonder Halfords made a profit last year, they must have sold stacks of rattle cans to paint the rear and there is less hair on a 70's pornstar too

Nice project although it looks like your going to have to spend a few pennies on the rear, i'm guessing with the bodyside mouldings it will be easy to spray the lower half of the car, then both rear quarters and the rear bumper ?

Nice project though, i keep looking at the older Jags for something to smoke about in, the Daimlers are quite rare though.

Oh this thread is heaven!!!

What a beast of a car - brand new it must have been incredible. I can't wait to see what you do with the bodywork - anything has to be better than the rattle can job. I can't imagine the mind of the person who sat with that beautiful wounded Daimler in front of them and thought they could make it better with a rattle can.

The interior is gorgeous, I can only imagine how soft that leather is. It's held up pretty well considering.

Subscribed in an instant. Whenever you can find the time to work on the car and then write about it for us whilst juggling a young family. I will be right here ready to read it!
