Whatever you do, make sure all power lines to dip and fog/Aux are done by relay, thereby avoiding excess current through switch and connectors as well as getting full 12V to the actual lamps. (Dip goes as standard via about 5 switches and relays) so relay that as well.

Rear wheel bearing Ss1 Ti

In general, to replace the rear wheel bearing you need to; 1. Loosen the rear wheel hub nut with a very long lever, preferably a 3/4 in socket. 2. remove the rear wishbone to allow drive shaft to be disengaged. 3 be careful how you press the new one in so as not to damage it. 4 . Get/make a very-sho...

Only Reliant would put bolts on the inside instead of putting nuts on the inside - why make life easy.
i think you'd need very special fingers to get those nuts placed and engaged on threads of bolts from outside...unless they were captive nuts :)

Bit obvious too! Bottom left of control panel, but what's the point of this?

Fuel tank venting

As Peter says, vent on the later models is via a one-way valve (air in, not out). It stops a petrol smell in the garage! I think roll-over protection comes from the routing of the final vent pipe back down to the diff, which will be uppermost if car is rolled and thus not leak. The one way valve wil...

Agree, no need for channel, but do seal the weatherstrip... Later of my 2 cars is sealed, especially important where weatherstrip wraps around rear of quarter light frame and tends to leave a gap. This is evident in the photo where Reliant were not too neat! (Passenger side sealing is invisible). 20...
