I think my front indicators are to far in and I'm thinking about putting them on the front wheel arches and my side repeaters are to low to see over the rear archers. I don't know weather to move them up or put them on the Side of the front arches as well.

hi your front ones can you not measure how far out they need to come and then make some extensions, (westfield do longer ones the same as yours for their widebody) this would save you having holes from where they are now if you move them, repeaters "probably" have to go on the edge of the front arch

Well little up date.
Iv managed to spend some time over the week end in the garage and sorted a few things and found a few gremlins. The seats are now bolted in with the harnesses. The drive seat is on sliders and the passenger is just bolted down. Iv also put some hinges on my boot lid and fitted some locks just need to Put something under Neath for them to catch against. The gremlins are from the indicators they were once working and I started to fit the side repeaters onto the front arches went to try them and nothing fuses are ok and iv now narrowed it down to the flasher box. Think I blow it up some how when trying to get my hazards to work. On the plus side my to do list is getting sorter.

hi glad your getting on are your indicators / repeaters all bulb or led or a mix?
Mine were a mix so I used a flasher unit from cbs that does both or I have some unused ballast resistors here if you want foc
My list is getting shorter too and took the car from house to a big car park on sat morning , it showed up a couple of issues and its going to the local garage in 3 weeks for a shakedown, emmisions, brakes, light aim.
Keep up the good work

Cheers Gary.
I did see you went out for a spin looking good. My indicators are all bulbs I haven't check them but might be good to check. There is no click from the flasher box so that is why I'm thinking that is the problem.

Right iv had a little time in the garage over the weekend sorted a few issues out so I'm glad about that. That means my to do list is getting smaller. Iv also took the car out on the road for the first time even if it was to turn it around into the garage I think it still count. Most of this weeks work will be to make a few supporting brackets for the engine bay and give that a clean up.
