Re: good old excel

spoke too soon! although warmer now, it took an absolute age for the engine to reach "normal" temp. I thought the fans were stuck on but no. on way home it warmed up as normal within 3 miles so im guessing the thermostat might have been stuck open so new one on the way.

Re: Rear Fog lights / Horn not working

does the fog switch light up when on? if not see if the plug came off the back of the switch. it can be disturbed if removing cluster panel. Horn, did you remove the steering wheel to get to instruments? if so did you put the wire back onto button.

Re: Misc parts wanted 87 SE

He has still got the badge, its near mint condition but isnt sure if he wants to sell as he is not sure if he will find a replacement "if" he ever wanted to refit it to his car.
I will keep on at him! What sort of price are you thinking of paying for a nose badge?
