Maestro temp sensor and door trim

Tinkering has started on the Brown Maestro. First thing to go was the temperature sensor and the carburetor needle as the electric fan was not working and the engine ran like a fat pig. A few hours changing the needle, rotor arm and re-attaching all the air hoses and adjusting meant a big improvement. But obviously more tinkering is needed before the car will run reliably.
The rubber seal on the sensor was perished and caused a small coolant leak
The two tone brown interior looked fine, but we had some old Maestro Mayfair wooden trim panels waiting in the attic, so we added some class here.
Looks almost like a British classic car. Wood veneer on plastic and CustomVinyl seat trim make this Maestro a true limited edition at least.
