Thanks

Re: Safety belts

Hi
This is a 62 fhc so we just drilled a point at the back below window level. It’s covered with a black plastic top in the picture. It pivots up and down a little

Re: Heater box

I think the problem is that when the “return spring “ is at full stretch the lever it acts on is just beyond “neutral point” thus acting to keep it locked open
You need to loosen the lever and rotate it, retighten so that the spring always acts on the lever

Re: Safety belts

Hi My engineers at Butlins Classic Cars designed a curved metal bracket (trimmed out in picture) for the inertia reel It keeps it just below the window line and is very comfortable over my shoulder. It pivots at the rear at one point Robbie https://i.postimg.cc/6pxZknZ5/3-AD6-CADF-E24-F-4-F0-A-9651-...

Aah memories
I have a picture somewhere (I’ll try and find it) of me sitting in mine in my parents garden in 1960s
It was white I seem to recall...loved that car
Wish I still had it!

Blimey...how fast do you guys drive at night?
I love my pretty closed headlamps and have never had a problem with seeing enough road at night

Re: S1.5 Instrument Wiring

Hi Mike
Let me know how you get on because I have to do mine at some point
I think the 4 small gauges are the “daisy chain” one with a spade connector
The one to the main speedo and rpm gauges go into a small diameter wrapped section of the dash loom and appear behind the main gauges
