Barry - exactly that. 
Im far from a pedant - none of my Morinis are original but I think a series 1 Le Mans 1 does deserve to be built to as standard a standard as possible, especially if as you say it takes the same effort as adding aftermarket bling

And in other news, mention of "strips of Cola can" has given me an idea that might just be the solution to the problem of the broken shims in my camera tripod...

Oh but it is, if you've read the book.
I haven't called anyone "unreasonable" by the way, that would sound sanctimonious  Wink

Such extravagance, I bet old Luigi used two rubber grommets and a length of fence wire, possibly on a good day it would have been galvanised. When stocks were low it would have been coat hangers from the locker room
