    Let there be rock!

    Seen the stranglers at least 75 times. I lost count now. In the early eighties I would see about 6 gigs on each tour. Now I only see them twice per year. Damned x 3 Buzzcocks x 2 Weller x 2 From the jam x 3 Moorhead x 1 Saxon x 2

    The SA escorts always seem to look a bit higher on the back end.

  13. Pinto alternator .. not sure if it's 55 amp or 65 amp. In good working order. 12 volt car battery came off mk2 escort pinto Both were new in 2016. I replaced them as I had a charging issue that was found later to be nothing to do with these components. They are free or I can post if you pay postage. I guess the fee is between 10 to 15 bucks each. Having a tidy up. Neil

    For the electrically qualified

    So I wired in a relay with 30 amp fuse and it still blows , tried 35 amp and that went after a short run in the car. As I said when the car is stationery there is no problem the fan kicks on and off, no problem. I had a rethink and traced it to the same time after i fitted an LED kit car fan light that illuminates when the fan is on.it took a feed from the fan and the other cable was earthed. Disconnected the led light and all ok. Took it for a good run with water temp up to 90 degrees and fan is good. Must be a dodgy fan light or how I hard wired it in. Neil

    Not bad for £12

    I was looking for some ghia door cards x 4 door. Couldn't find any so I bought some vinyl wrap and black pinstripes and wrapped the top edges of all 4 doors. Quite pleased with how they came out. Mrs not happy that her best hairdryer was outside. Treated the old girl -not the wife- to some sporty £14.99 seat covers.nice
