GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

I found similar issues when rebuilding my 6b was the fuses on the front panel to right hand side of bonnet, bad contacts, had me baffled for a while, take a look at those, as others have said might look okay but not making proper contact, clean contact and fuse up and check that the fuse wiring is o...
