    If that was all that was causing the issue why did you go spend a fortune on a new loom havery? I would have used heat shrink crimps for that.

    Im liking the indicators. I did mine too when I bought it, I think its one of those subtle mods that people don't notice but they know something has changed.
    Thanks

    It looked like it had been repaired before,I just like to do a repair once and get it right the harness was damaged in two places as it was loose inside the roof.

    The last thing I would want is it catch fire as the rear screen heater is quite high current draw,all the wires are in there.

    I will say there is nothing worse than repairing a repair that someone else has done.

    Strange you say that I have just orderd new wiper blades as the one on the near side is straight and is hitting the scuttle panel it should be curved one.

    Hello there - pleased to see all the attention the car is getting - going to be a credit to you, Harvey!

    That wiring is a mess in the boot, I know of one repair to the loom but not two. And I think I used insulating tape not duct tape! Good that you found the issue.

    You will find a crimp connector or two around the Grom unit in the front too, it was a temporary fit that you will no doubt want to redo in time.

    Martyn I still have the headlamp wiper arm here, I knew you'd bring it up and only fair, I will happily send it back up North (minus the cap that is on Harvey's car!)

    Looking forward to seeing further progress!
