I of course have some of those wheels spare and a (possibly new) spare back bumper. They are down in Bedfordshire but you they and much more are available. It might be worth a day trip.

After the house move on the 31st I will have to persuade my mate Terry he needs to take his E Class Merc for a proper run out...

No news on the project I saw it today but was too busy joinering to give the poor thing any attention.

Managed a 3 mile drive round the unit as it is about .3 of a mile right round it so was 10 laps...bit lumpy and the brakes are not very good servo not working? still the little beast got a nice run about before it started raining. Also had a go at swapping out the hazard warning switch as it was jamming and the flasher unit was going haywire Noticed all the dashboard lights bar one had given up the ghost so will change the bulbs out before I put the dash back together.

the piccy needs viewing from the side on...needed 6 little bulbs and I lost one of the screws down the inside of the steering column...will find it tomorrow as I will probably change the column stalks as the light one has snapped off. Good news a quick clean of the bulb contacts and all 4 indicators work apart from one side indicator, the hazards are working thanks to Franks new switch so just need to sort the drivers side side/head lights and change the rear passenger lens. New wipers and tyres will be next.

It's interesting that it seems to be the brown plastic stalks that snap. Both the cars I have broken with brown interiors had snapped steering collumn stalks but none of the black plastic ones have suffered in this way.

These resistor things get hot and smokey with the ignition left on what are they for? And as for these 'earth' trees I will have to come up with a better solution.

new light cluster... no reversing light on this one and it needed a separate earth for the rear fog to work...luckily a previous custodian had done this for the one I took off Result!

I have always assumed the resistor things are to produce the variable speed for the ventilation fan (the one above the heater works) and the wipers (the one on the strut turret. I've never known them to get hot  and, assuming they are what I think they are, there shouldn't be any power to them unless the wipers or ventilation fan are operating.

The rear light without a reversing light is interesting too. Did it come from abroad? I can't think I've seen a UK car without reversing lights on both sides. Even the poverty spec one for sale on e-bay at the moment has two. My spares have a reversing light but I'm scraping the barrel for unbroken ones now.

Forgot about the wipers...will check to see where the switch is at. The fan works on speed 1 and speed 3 so that might get changed not sure about the wipers I seem to remember them working when the car first landed will get some new blades and get them checked out as well as the washers.The rear light I bought in the UK still in it's box (or a box) There is no bulbholder inside so only one reverse light strange...

I've done some checking too. The one on the heater motor is fan speed. You say yours works on 1 and 3. It's usually 1 and 2 with 3 being the one that always fails. I have an impression it is something inside the switch because I was told always to save a switch that worked on all three speeds.

The one on the strut top mount comes isn't the wipers. Mine came live on dipped headlights and having interrogated the wiring diagram it appears to be part of the headlight dim/dip circuitry.

That makes more sense as I was working on the drivers side headlamp...the fan might indeed be the switch not sure if losing the second speed is a major disaster but would be an easy fix now I know how to get the dash to bits!
