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 second flick to turn the intermittent off.

Hopefully a sensible update for a Big Saloon.

Went to Stoneleigh today with two parts in mind to shop for, a wiper switch with loom and a plain 2500 grill badge. I’d only been there 15 minutes when my mobile rang, it was johnnydog, “You know you were looking for a plain 2500 grill badge? There’s one on the stand in the club shed”. As it happened we were only about 50 feet apart at the time and a little later got the badge for £10 - bargain. Thanks John 👍🏻

Later on wandering the stalls looking for an early Mk2 wiper switch with the rubber plug arrangement, I was amazed at the spread, everything from £80 cleaned and bagged down to £12 with a sticky action and the loom covered in Scotchlocks. I settled on a clean and free-moving unit for £15. I’ll set to on the intermittent and wash-wipe conversion and document it here.

No problem Chris!
It's always good when find items you were after, and even items you weren't after but the price is right!
You can drive home with a smile on your face knowing that the journey wasn't in vain!
As I did with my nos genuine Laycock clutch cover (suitable for a 2.5 / 2500 with the blue paint brush marking). Not a recon either (as many now are) - excellent! Not exactly a tenner, but considering how rare they are in nos condition, I definitely drove home happy!
It was a good day for the Register too! Very busy stand most of the day with a good number of lapsed members re-joining!👍
