if you're still looking then you have not looked at the last place....have you?

to make you feel better I did something similar recently, spent 35 mins looking for my eyeglasses, around the cars, parts, under, over, in boxes, in the house, back to the garage, back to the house, on and on, well they turned up, on my face where they belonged

I took a look at the two wiring harnesses that came with the car. One was installed and the other was a "replacement in perfect shape". It turns out that both of them had a white wire near the center of the harness that was completely melted. I decided to deconstruct the two harnesses into separate bags of colored wire. In the process I was able to salvage some single and double and even triple connectors, a few bulb holders, and most of the wires. Now I can wire my new electric stuff with the proper color coded wire...I hope

If you have not already done so, you should find and fix whatever was drawing all of that current on the white circuit!

In other news, I found my missing rad hose! Last night I armed myself with a brighter flashlight and some fresh determination, and after 10 minutes found it on the floor, in a corner of the garage, hidden under and behind some brooms!

Hiya folks

I found a set of tatty alloy rims from a Lotus Europa. I am keeping the original wheels and caps but these might look a treat. Once they are stripped and painted with a fresh polish I will start saving up for new rubber. Small steps forward. I am working on the front valance, patching holes and welding new bits on it. The rear one is even worse. Then fix the boot floor and the welding is done......I hope.

Thanks for listening and please let me know what you think.

First of all I am acutely aware of my misplaced post. I am also aware that I should delete it but I don't know how. Finally I aware that my 5 year old could do all this...


I have been spending a lot of time futzing with good ole Kumar. I put a nice rug over the back seat as I learned, quite quickly, that strapping a child into black vinyl on a sunny days results in A LOT of crying... And the kid was kit happy either. Also, i realized while working on Kumar at my folks house that their garage rules. Kumar and a Porsche Boxster (many mock the box, but speaking from experience it is about 50x more car than can bun used on the roads and 10x more capable a car than I am a driver). Barely visible in front of Kumar is a '67 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider. I not allowed to touch that car.

Will do mate,next thing i have to do is replace the clutch. My car has a 2500 motor and gearbox from a salon.The gearbox mounts
looks like it could be welded in!!!! if so will post some pictures.Bloody hard to get around the car shed at the moment as one of my 4
daughters ,husband and three kids have moved in to our house and all there stuff is packed around the Vitesse.Not good for pictures
but great to be able to help them out until they buy their own place. Our Jap cars have to live outside but they don't rust and no snow
in this part of the world, in fact its been very mild this this winter/spring
cheers Max

I just brought home my freshly rebuild radiator today. $92.00. Looks great but still a little sticky with the paint they use on these. Just need a few hoses and a finished Herald now.
