What's the plans then Bernie? Modern running gear and all the bells and whistles or a straight resto?

Are you trying to get me arrested by the Hillman Police :oops:.
Nothing but the best for old Jean, back to original, all panels ordered can’t wait to get started.:D

It's all part of her charactor Colin :oops:
Incidentally, I expect you will know this already, but worth repeating. Those silly spacers were added at the last moment with cars already rolling off the production line because they discovered that the lights (side lights I think) were too low off the ground and didn't comply with Construction and use regulations, so they needed an instant fix to get the cars on the road. Hence the bandy legged look, which wasn't how they were designed.

At least the gear lever is straight, or is it supposed to be bent;)
If you need a hand give me a shout and I'll make sure I'll be washing my hair:) I can blow holes in metal with the best of them so if you need some extra ventilation in the floors you know who to call.

Looking at petrol models wiring diagram it could be horn, hazards, cig lighter and interior light. They all start at constant live fuze. I can photo the wiring diagram if you want.
