    My list:

    Drive the car as usual
    Clean it occasionally
    Use my chassis pressure washer to clean the underside once, probably over the Christmas holidays
    Fix anything that breaks
    6,000 mile service is due in January

    Started my list already(see previous post "Front Hub & Brake Upgrade") but have hit a snag with the discs which Chris Witor is hopefully sorting.

    Then, in no particular order:-

    Swap all wheels round

    Replace clutch pipe with Goodridge braided hose. Bought direct and not via the brothers

    Add a bit of bling with a polished aluminium clutch reservoir

    Renew steering column bushes - not looking forward to this

    Investigate why radio has lost its DAB signal and the electric aerial has developed the hiccups when extending

    Should get me out of the house and avoid any jobs SWMBO thinks I have time to do

    My list is :-

    1. fit indicator buzzer with timer as can't hear it anymore and leave it on like an old person!

    2. check my timing chain tensioners with scope (Stag Paranoia)

    3.Remove the old underseal from boot floor and paint with 121 mastic +chip guard +body colour, may drop axle but suffering from SLUGITUS at the moment!

    4. add new clips to drivers door card.

    5. sleep

    Replace both door cards
    Sort out slow electric windows - both sides
    Wire-up central locking kit
    'Adjust' new remote unlocking keys to fit
    Wire header tank float switch to a lamp, somewhere
    Sort out the smelly boot
    Try polishing the paintwork - might not work

    But the biggy is - find some foam for the glovebox buffer which is strong enough to push the door open and keeps its shape after being squeezed shut, so it does it the next time.

    Where did you source your 80A alternator?

    Hi Alan

    My hose comes out of the front. I have fitted the original alternator in the left position as a test and it has at least 40mm clearance all around. I received the 80A alternator today but have not checked if it fits yet but I am sure it will.

    Dave,

    Does you header tank hose at the radiator end come out towards the radiator, or across the engine bay?

    If it comes out across the engine bay then it fouls the alternator in the new position, so sorry but more plumbing would be needed.

    Fit Electric Fan, with manually set timed run on to reduce Heat Soak, and fit Stagdad external water pump. As alternator will now be on the left so change it to an 80A version.

    Reposition Header Tank float switch. Invert it and put it higher so it becomes fail safe and gives earlier warning, and put an on delay on the float switch with initial bulb check on power up.

    Fit 2nd bonnet pull on drivers side with integral switch to isolate inner dip headlights for town driving and push button to start fan for carb cooling.

    Fit Active Breather System.

    Then after lunch take a nap.

    Dave

    Bumpers, on or off? Chrome or stainless, satin black 1/4 bumpers, let's wait and see.

    Stag no. 1 needs to come off the road for new bushes all round, another diff and a carb transplant to another set of ZS carbs, but weather here, Northern California, has been mild so still getting a few days of top down driving. Stag no. 2 has the hard top on and can't easily get it off the car single handed. I have a hard top hoist, but still needs 2.

    As far as mice go I saw a u-tube video where this guy was busting mouse repellant myths, like dryer pads, Irish spring soap and more., the only one that worked was mint oil..

    The other way to deal with E10 is to fill to brim, as that also prevents condensation forming, No problems for my 2 classics over the last 8-10 years.. but sounds like your garage is not fully dry all the time. Best be sure..

    Put car to bed:-

    Spray wax coating onto chromework & wheels.

    Check tyre pressures.

    Ensure roof up (to stretch)

    Now with E10, pump tank dry of fuel and seal off fuel cap & vent to minimise air entering fank (moist air). Then run engine until carbs empty.

    Sort out electric aerial - a radio problem.

    Check poison bait in rat /mouse traps, and check gaps under garage doors. Rodents love wiring & seats.

    Clean leaves from garage gutters to ensure rain water gets away from garage and keep garage is as dry as possible.

    Spray film of oil over contents of tool chest to prevent rusting of spanners.

    Disconnect battery.

    Leave bonnet ajar..


    Open bottle of red wine and hibernate until Spring.
