HVAC Controls

In the process of completing my Classic Retrofit AC system, I started using my HVAC controls on the dash again. This caused my bottom two knobs to crack. I saw that Rennline has some billet replacements but not for the top smaller knobs. Anyone know where I can get the red knob? It seems like Porsche is NLA at this point on that item. I rather go all aluminum or keep them all plastic at this point. slippery slope with the rennline bits

It's so tempting just to keep ordering more and more of their parts! I love the products they make but it adds up quick!

For temporary use, I'm going to try and glue the broken pieces together.

Be sure to check out Porsche Classic site for newly remanufactured parts

The knobs are available according to their website
