    Smile wanted washer bag & ign switch

    Hi Members!
    I`m looking for a used plastic washer bag and ignition switch (reasonable) for my 57 190sl. My car isn`t a show car ,but it`s beautiful and a great driver!! I`d be happy if some one could tell what else I could use in there place.
    Merri Christmas to All!

    The trouble with a 57 is that all three versions of the sending were uses. This would lead me to assume that the same held true for the bag.

    I purchased the bag from Stoddard Porsche, Stoddard.com (click on Part Store, Click on 356 Catalog, Click on Electrical, Click on Windshield Wiper/Washer), order part number 644-628-720-00 for $38.75. The bag appears to be accurate for the early model 190sl washer bag (I have a hand pump system) with the exception of the light blue color (as abusive as the yellow repro sold). Anyway, I taped up the rivits and top, sprayed with a black vinyl dye and it came great. Just like an original. I'm pretty sure the original was black. If you need info on the dye, let me know and I will supply the name of the manufacturer. I bought it at my shoe repair shop. Good luck.

    Anthony,
    As info here is a photo of the early Washer Fluid Bag and the Bag Holder.
    I believe this bag was used until mid 57. I know it was used in 55-56.
    The holder in the third photo on the Washer Bracket Doc is the later version.

    Anthony,
    Will you post a photo of the bag after you dyed it?
    I found it on the site, http://www.stoddard.com/shop/shopexd.asp?id=1987 , you mentioned but the size is not shown. How does it "measure" up to the original I posted?

    Hi Harold,

    The Stoddard bag may be just about 1/2 inch taller and 1/4 inch wider if the bag you show is an original. Though, it appears to be much closer in size than the yellow repro they sell. As soon as I can coax my daughter into doing a picture for me, I'll post it. Hey, maybe your original bag shrunk after 54 years, I know I have. Most important is that the bag fits great on the original bracket. Thanks for the great pictures.

    Washer Bag and Center Console

    Harold, attached are pictures of the washer bag and bracket. I also attached a center console that I built to fit between the narrow seats of a 190SL. I'm not entirely happy with the way it came so I may build another one. I did use the same leather as the interior. Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    Bill ..... That is a replacement washer "bag" from a 230SL (or similar cars).

    Has anyone else built a center console that works for the early cars. The seats are extremely close together. Any comments on the one Iv'e built?

    Console

    You put some efforts to build someting looking good, but not too practical. As mentionned before, you can buy at Wal Mart for $5.00 a plastic one which allow deposit of coffee jug and other stuff. This can be remove in a blink of an eye if you go to a Show or Concours.

    I've yet to find one of the generics that fit appropriately between the early seats.
