Re: Turn Signal/Brake Light/Side Light.

@ Steve, as you say I’m not sure about the PIN numbers but as far as the wires are concerned I think the diagram is correct. Anthony should have 2 red wires from fuse 5 , one supplying the panel lights and one to the side lights themselves. What is confusing is the fact that the fuse is post side li...

Re: Turn Signal/Brake Light/Side Light.

H Anthony, I spent many a happy hour making a new loom for my S2 so hopefully have a reasonable understanding of how the original worked. This is my understanding of the configuration. Power is supplied to the headlamp switch via a brown permanent live unfused cable. It leaves the headlamp switch vi...

Re: Turn Signal/Brake Light/Side Light...dumb question

Hi John, from the S2 parts catalogue. My 69 car had the ones in the bottom picture and I’ve seen quite a few US cars with that set up. Perhaps it depended on a change in US lighting regulations? I’ll see if there is anything relating to chassis number or date. UK spec part number C33592 US spec twin...

Re: Turn Signal/Brake Light/Side Light...dumb question

I’m not sure that’s right John. The bases are different for US and UK cars and the wiring diagram would be right for a US car.

Other bonded parts delaminating?....... Our cars were not meant to last this long. This is the result. After 40 years I can cope with, but after 4 months perhaps the quality of the new parts needs considering? Certainly in Anthony’s pic above the part looks to be a recent replacement as part of the...

Re: Turn Signal/Brake Light/Side Light...dumb question

Anthony, I think I'm right in saying that it depends on whether you have American spec rear lights which are all red or Eurooean spec ones which are red and amber. On a US spec S2 with all red rear lights the turn signal flashes red so the dual filament bulb would be for the brake and turn signal an...

Geoff it is currently minus rear wheels up on special stands ratchet strapped on all four corners to the floor ready to run it through all the gears. I shall probably just leave it like that and install a large projector screen. :bigrin:

Re: Garage Flooring

Yes, I had an epoxy paint and it was treacherous when wet to the point where I felt it was life threatening. I had an epoxy floor and found the same David . That was a while ago and it has lasted really well, however when I re do it I will probably go for a “non slip” version which would effectivel...

Re: This does not feel right

I thought as much Paul. I recognised the car because I’d actually saved pictures of the seats to copy because I really liked how they had been trimmed. :lol:
Mine’s gunmetal but will have a red interior.

Re: This does not feel right

Hi Paul, I had a feeling that was your car. The reason I asked about the car in the picture is Woodham Mortimer are advertising in writing that they were responsible for restoring the car yet don’t seem to feel responsible for any warranty work. Anyway at least you are getting it sorted. I like the ...

Re: Pictures of your stolen E-type for a news story in Classic Cars magazine

I also think the often voiced “probably in Eastern Europe now” is an easy opt out for those investigating such thefts. Personally I think with a ready E bay market for E type parts, the answer is much closer to home. A quick coat of primer and you’ll get £3k for a bonnet, 1k for a couple of doors, £...

Re: checking lsd works

I trust you did a full Risk Assessment of the car park before attempting anything like that Darren?
I,m just dissapointed there wasn't a McDonald's in the background and a few Corsas. :bigrin:

Other than that the video was "Sick and Wicked!"

Special spindle bolt on my stainless throttle linkages.

Re: Advice on rustproofing treatment please?

After some research I used Dynax S50 and have been very pleased with it, especially the fact that unlike Waxoyl it is more resistant to higher temperatures while still achieving good penetration. I’ve used Waxoyl before and the Dynax is no where near as messy and seems to stay in place on vertical s...
