    Alps in July?

    Great video, a lovely reminder of our trip in Florin down to north Italy; too many years have past since & our French trip this year on hold.

    Vin stamp

    As above -- strike the punch hard & fast with a 2lb ball pein hammer & the s/steel tube will take an impression, & no problems with weld being rejected at IVA.
  3. Have always found it's best to use the same station as does your daily driver, they had the work for the run of the mill wheels you own; so are probably prepared to go the extra mile.
  4. Can you put up a picture? On Florin the boot is a very close fit, so much so that if not in its correct position moving the clutch lever moves the boot. Maybe yours is incorrect or were there differing types?
  5. Can't see why the cover wont fit as it is only a little bigger than the protruding arm -- Florin wears hers & cannot re-call it being difficult to fit.

    Makes a change

    Full size, with a stack of 45's ??
  7. NOT if the seat breaks free under you.
  8. Without knowing what switches are fitted I'm guessing about yours. Florins switches were wired centre feed & the contact terminal either side was the feed out to the load ( either fan speed resistors or lamps ) This will not be much help as there are numerous switch configurations. What terminals & markings are on the rear of your switches?
  9. Could try putting more resistance in series with the present set-up. Try adding a low wattage lamp cut into the sender wire between sensor & gauge. May indicate which way you need to go with sensor resistance, if the gauge shows less than FSD with this temporary rig; sensor value is too low. This is not a permanent fix, as its a variable resistance required.
  10. We re-used the Sierra visors, very useful with low sun & no roof.
  11. All above makes our kits so much more use-able & safer. I don't wish to be followed by a wiper-less car when it's raining, how the hell does the driver cope -- there is a limit to how much screen the passenger can clean; unless sat on the bonnet. ( Interesting excuse when stopped by lilly law --- " no problem, officer; she's just keeping the screen clear " )
  12. Great story Mark, a good "one liner " for the yooff of to-day --- what-ever we old'uns did " back in the day " before yesterday YOU will be paying for as we will probably have died. Same as this lock-down crisis -- it's the young & their children who will be paying for all the present government hand-outs' cause the government has no money other than that collected in taxes from ----- YOU the workers, present & future.
  13. So what's with the mohican green skid-lid Andy, just window dressing for the passenger seat? All weather motoring in this country needs windscreen, wipers,washers & a HEATER. Been on the road down to Cornwall & on top of Applecross Pass in Scotland in temp of -2*. Comfort is also a safety thing --- can't focus or the road if you're blasted by rain or shivering with cold. But then I am a lot older than that young blooded Andy.

    1st time turn over

    The contacts are badly pitted, need filing flat with a single cut file & what else ?? You gave it a go & can't get a good result but at least you tried. ( Brain surgery by this method is not recommended.)
