Re: Rusty Custard

I also fitted H4/H1 headlamps complete with nightbreaker + bulbs. That combination, together with the relay mods, provides the best headlights I've ever had! DSCF0894.JPG Cheers, Mike. The current H4/H1 headlamps have some cheapo Halfrauds bulbs. But I fitted Osram Nightbreaker + bulbs to my Stag b...

Re: Rusty Custard

You can’t see from the pictures, but each of the individual light has a separate earth lead. I like the idea of running lines directly back to the Battery earth. Something for the future perhaps.

Re: Rusty Custard

The interior light bulb had blown, so in the spirit of further lighting upgrades, we have fitted an LED replacement to the old festoon bulb. 7A36706A-5929-4DAB-A0FE-2DFC1721918F.jpeg BC827BB0-A216-4C27-BD97-319A9324EE48.jpeg D516BEA3-BD54-419E-8352-3D590CA8D466.jpeg 665D1C55-03C9-4E17-AC9F-0829C8E67...

Re: Rusty Custard

Ever onwards - this isolation stuff is getting in the way of prepping the car. Ages ago (last year) I said that I would document fitting headlamp relays, I finally got around to doing something about it, as poor old Martin has been working on his own. I saw a relay conversion kit on eBay, it works b...

Lower Rear Wing Repair Panels

We are working through the bodywork now, I need the lower section of both rear wings behind the rear wheel arches, the part that joins with the rear valence. I have already checked on the South Wales Triumphs website without success, does anyone know if such panels exist and where they might be foun...

Re: Rusty Custard

Update on last post. Partner in crime Martin jacked up one rear wheel today, to test the gearbox and overdrive are OK after the oil and O/D filter change, together with the change of speedo drive to match the new diff ratio. Overdrive works in 3rd gear, but no speedo! Undo cable on the back of the s...

Re: Rusty Custard

Not much done since lockdown, however with the car 82 miles from home it’s not really surprising. However my RBRR colleague Martin has fitted the LED boot lights (because you only need to find things when it’s dark), drained and refilled the O/D gearbox, changed O/D filter. Fitted appropriate speedo...
