Re: Ghostly goings on!

Strangely it did take me back 20 years to my eclat! I was lucky if they stayed down for 3 hours until I pulled out the pipe from the vacuum tank in the drivers footwell to the pods and glued the joins in the pipes together, then they used to last 3 or 4 days :lol:

Ghostly goings on!

Looked out of the window after lunch to see that my lights had popped up on their own. Went out to check relays and fuses for water etc and all was bone dry. As soon as I turned ignition on they went down. Its never done it before so will keep my eye on it.

Re: Recolouring Leather/Vinyl

There was (for some unknown reason) a piece of leather about 5" square in the glove box so sent that but a bit from inside the door card will be ok (anywhere that hasn't seen the sun)
