8th December

I found the reason for the main beam warning light not working, it was broken just inside the plastic sleeving right at the front of the chassis where it goes into the plug I fitted so that was put right easily once found.

15th December

I dismantled the wiper switch and found all the terminals were badly corroded so I dismantled it cleaned them up and refitted it. The 2 wiper speeds now work OK but when you push the switch down it doesn't do the one sweep it's supposed to. I've dismantled it again and had another go but it still doesn't work so it looks as though a new switch will be needed.

21st December

I have fitted the passenger side front inner wheel arch and connected up the fresh air and heater hoses. I've also cleaned, painted and fitted  the fan. This was fitted with household electrical flex, the type used for house wiring, so this was replaced with proper wire. With the fan right at the front of the car it doesn't create much of a draught inside the car even on the fast speed.
