Found that digital flasher unit now. Here is a link to the supplier:

My auto electrician advises you need to add an earth when you fit it.

Hope that helps.

Thankyou very much for that.

If mine stops working, I will be right on it!



Thanks.

Scraped a bit of paint off to reveal panels underneath... Not too bad!

They do ride a bit high on standard suspension, especially at the back

I lowered mine by approx 1 1/2 inches which works a treat

Lowered and slightly uprated springs with Tockico HP shocks, all from Mike @ MJP

It might be an idea to hold off buying stuff until you're further into it, I would budget for the welding repairs first. Once you've removed all the filler and paint you'll really be able to see how much welding is going to be required, it's looking pretty scary already to be quite honest!

Rust repairs ain't cheap, especially for a 2+2 where some of the panels are going to have to be custom made. I do admire your bravery though

The car is actually pretty solid, it actually looks worse than it is.

Mostly because when it was rusty 10 years ago some bunch on ***** just fillered over all the rust instead of cutting it out and doing it properly!!!


I thought the back bumper was good until I chipped the edge off yesterday to realise they done a very nice job of filler on that too.

Still not too bad though.

Just lots of extra work.

Front wings need most attention. Then just either end of the sills, the centre sections are actually relatively rust free, probably due to the excessive side skirts it had on. Rear bumper side bottoms also another bad area for attention as it had just been fillered over before and packed with cardboard where it gathered water.

I admire your enthusiasm and confidence but that statement is too much (sorry to be brutal).

However keep up the good work it already looks much better!
