Today I thought let's tackle the rear light issues. I have been stalling on this one and accumulating some materials. It went much easier than I thought.
No Reversing lights . Connector had come off the reversing switch.
Intermittent brake lights . Shitty earth.
No fog light . Blown bulb and shitty connector.
Also got a handbrake for the first time in 2 years. A small adjustment of 25mm on the cable .
Worryingly, the underneath is plastered in oil,the full length of the car. I have a carpet in my garage that has been absorbing the oil like a pig mat. It's from the front end near the dizzy. Let's hope it's a simple job.
Went for a 30 mile run tonight and lots of sideways actions. Doing my frank kelly impersonation.
Could do with a sixth gear as topping out across the moors at 108. Sheep looking nervous and quite rightly so. Fed the semi wild horses and one gave me a gentle kick to keep away.
