Re: Rimmers headlight switch

Just to add to Johns post, the earlier mk2 ( up to facelift model) also had a front foglight position which gave the option of foglights plus side & tail lights, the switch had five positions, park, off, sidelights, headlights, foglights, whilst the later cars had three positions, off, side, head.

Double (and triple) postings

A good few weeks ago I thought my PC was running slow, and when I replied to a post and then clicked send, it didn't 'go', so you press again as you do, only to find that when you go back to the board index you find that the first post had actually gone and you have actually made two (or three) post...

Re: Light switch not connecting

To get the rotary switch knob off, insert something like a 1/8" drill bit or a small dia. screwdriver into the hole in the bottom of the switch knob to depress the plunger holding the knob to the switch spindle. You might then be able to spray some switch cleaner along the spindle and into the switc...

Re: Buying versus restoring

As Simon says, its better to spend more on an original car than on a car that needs work. Welding & painting are very labour intensive and can turn out to be very expensive, especially if you dont do the work yourself. And nearly always find a restoration will involve a lot more work (and money) tha...

Re: Converting 2500 from left hand drive to right hand drive

Not impossible to do, but the cost w...
