Why? Because they are made of plastic or rubber, and both products decay.
So our recent parts list included all the missing ones inside the cab.
When you work on a vintage vehicle, you more often than not have many simultaneous projects going on. While we worked (and waited) on the heat riser valve, we also replaced miscellaneous knobs; this way, there was an immediate feeling of accomplishment.
Even though Abbey’s interior could use a fresh update on paint, and most definitely needs a good cleaning, it was lovely to see her knobs again.
What I mean to say is that it is great to see the dashboard sporting all the knobs again.
Here are some photos.

Probably a moot point as I don't plan on taking Abbey out in the winter.
But the knob looks good! And it works!
...or it will once we replace the heater hose. (Next project)
|Yeah, okay, it's the keychain again, but the knob in the background
is for the cowl vent on the top of the hood.
And IT works too!
