Re: Rusty Custard

Co-owner Martin fired up the Custard Tart today and took her out for a drive, her first run since we did the cylinder head, carbs and dizzie rebuild. Also since we switched the rear springs and differential. He planned on a short 4ish mile loop but was enjoying himself so much that he ended up takin...

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

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...
