Re: Rusty Custard

Ah well there you are then Charles! If it’s not possible to source a Mk2 Stag wiper switch, it could be possible to add a latching relay to trigger the intermittent wipe functions and use the standard (sic) Big Saloon switch, one flick to latch the relay and trigger the intermittent relay and a seco...

Re: Rusty Custard

There is no intermittent wiper option, apart from the pull the lever towards you for a single wipe. Never seen a Stag with the intermittent wipe option as standard either! The switches are the same. Hi Charles - My Mk2 Stag (1974) has the pull towards you option, but it locks forward and triggers a...

Thanks John, I did think about disconnecting it from the gearbox, but in the end managed to get to it from underneath the dashboard.

Re: Rusty Custard

Re: Rusty Custard

Re: Rusty Custard

I turned up a radio surround on eBay labelled for a Stag the other day for under £30 - thanks for the information. Thanks to johnnydog for the dash panel, which I fitted yesterday. I went for a later Mk2 dash and substituted the dash light rheostat for the seat belt warning light. It took a little w...

Re: Fitting Interior door handles and window winders

Thanks guys, a combination of your advice did the trick, plus an idea of our own. We used some heavy bearing grease squidged into the hole. When you manage to finesse the pin in, the grease holds it in place, until you release the pressure on the spring, when friction against the hole holds everythi...

Fitting Interior door handles and window winders

Trying to fit these things and they have been fighting back. Is there a knack?
