Hi Russ... how you doing mate?.

the film made me think about the state of the new cars these days with the use of plastic,then thought what would have been made of plastic in those cars?...

switch knobs?.... probably not.
Badges?...
trim clips?...
washer bottles?....

nothing at all?. Does anyone know?.

Fascinating video - but I bet the noise in the press shop would have been horrendous!!
For my engineering porn I recall seeing a video of a 5 axis machining centre producing an Aluminium V8 block - from a billet!

I think the only plastic type materials around at that time were the Phenolic ones. Bakelite would have been used for switch knobs etc. Paxolin and Tufnol would have been used in dynamos, voltage regulators etc.
