Yo!

I have started to pull apart the interior of the vehicle to rectify some previous owner wiring - curious if anyone knows whether the insulation used in the parcel shelf, firewall etc contains asbestos? Better be safe than sorry I guess ?

While that is true....when it comes to asbestos, you might be surprised where it was still turning up.  Not that I know one way or the other about R34s, but I understand some other Jap cars from that era still had it.

I know it was very popular in brake pads, gaskets and bonnet insulation.

Some Chinese made trains delivered a couple of years ago were found to have asbestos. The Chinese manufacturers had to send workers over to remove it.

Chinese also put lead in baby powder. No surprises there.

How dare they.....we no longer have enough for our fuel and they are wasting it on babies!!!

Why are all the good stuff dangerous to organic life?
Asbestos - excellent insulation/thermal properties, very bad for lungs
Leaded petrol - good knock resistance, lead bad for life.
