    Drove it to the local Triumph/MG specialist who will be installing LED lights all round while I am on holiday in Scotland.

    Then I'll be able to drive with confidence in the hours of darkness.

        Does this specialist put it through Type Approval as part of the ‘upgrade’? Technically it is illegal to retro-fit LED bulbs in lamp units Type Approved for filament bulbs. Which is why most reputable sellers of external LED auto bulbs state in the small print “for off-road use only”. Even Halfords.

        Your car, your money, but you should be aware of what you are agreeing to. Enjoy your holiday.

          Drove from home in Bristol to a friends house in Cornwall. A38 all the way, avoided the carnage on M5.

            DSCF7929.jpgDSCF7930.jpg put on my new louvered bonnet, looks great (I think) and should help with those 30+ degree days. Ok I might be a bit late but there's always next year I hope.

                            Been busy preparing the car for the forthcoming RBRR. Diff oil topped up, gearbox oil topped up, wheel bearings checked and the nearside engine mount replaced.

                            Also discovered that the offside rear brake cylinder is leaking fluid behind the rubber boot so that requires replacing.

                            Regards
