convertible conversions

Nice one Erik, that will be a very fine car.

The french car ex Nick Matthews was sold back to the UK about three years ago I believe and I have no recent news of it.

Mystery Car 2

It was apparently quite a good car, it was a rival for the Citroën Traction which was about 15 years old - and shortly to be replaced by the DS which was about 15 years ahead of the Renault 8)

Mystery Car

I think the car in front of the Morris Minor is a Wyvern.
The rear lights on the mystery car look familiar to me but I haven't come up with anything yet.
My first thought was one of these ... but I don't know what that is either 8)

The temperature sender switches on ok about 90º ? Presumably the temperature does not rise further until the fan stops ? So you need to find out what is switching off (both fan and light), probably the sender. When it switches off hot, short the terminals of the 'otter switch' (sender) and if the fa...

Essex V6 tuning
