Hmmm I see what you did there :) made it a nice thoughtful gesture to the other half but little does she know the necessity of it in those fast switchbacks and racey driving manoeuvres you have planned! Smart thinking there ;)

Im not sure these grab handles were available on the series 2.
Never seen one mounted before
A friend of mine has a series 2 V8 that he bought around 40 years ago & it had one then (& still has).

That doesn’t mean it was fitted when new of course but looks possible. If he has the original invoice it would have it on if supplied with it.

I have a grab handle but haven't managed to get around to fitting it yet.

Can you actually use it with the map light there? I was considering moving the map light but as I said, haven't got around to it yet :)

Hi Quattro.
I pondered its position for a few days. There is not an option other than over the map light- which it clears perfectly even with my mit over it.
I was hoping to place it over the knee-bin button. Unfortunately the grab handle bolts foul the map light mount bolts.
So I bit the bullet and secured it over the map light.
Hence I surmise the grab handle is possibly designed for the series 1 ,without the map light.
Im satisfied with what Ive done
I keep hearing BLING Bling Bling
I guess this is why one sees so many classic cars at auto shows with masses amount of accessories that no one bothered with back in the day

Well guys its been one of those weeks when Ive been adding [bling] value? to the car.
Never seen these mounted before. A NADA thing.
A great place to store stuff- not. Actually in practice ,they are awkward to enter whilst in a sitting position, and really who uses maps nowadays.
Anyway I purchased two locally ,got them colour matched by my local auto shop and then into my hand gun and on it went.
I had to remove the door cards to fit and found all the required mount holes are already in place from the factory. How convenient.
Simple to fit and I think look Ok.
