  1. Do you need to have reverse lights hooked up for cert/wof? (I did search this thread and the LVV documents - couldnt find anything specific either way. I did 'see Cletus mention you don't legally need reverse gear (you probably should!?) but if do have the gear and not the corresponding illumination - fail or all good?)

    Battery chargers

    Checked the batt in the project, some kind of big calcium generic thing, usually charge it about twice a year when it gets down to the low 12s V. Read 16.5!? Must check meter on daily to see if its telling lies otherwise what the heck?
  3. Chinese gamble only worth it if you put fuck all value on your time (which you shouldn't, unless you're pretty solid on reincarnation, which you shouldn't be)
  4. I guess yeah... back lights can wait - Im over wiring diagrams
  5. So gauge back lights stay on when headlight switch is on and fuse is pulled ... obv using wire between HL switch and fuse... yeah nah fabrication foible?
  6. Good to hear, just ordered one yesterday

    Muffler Tech

    Stainless resonators in a steel exhaust system go nogo?
  9. Any recommendations on a auto helmet under $250?
  10. Umm dunno? Finding the bastard and getting to it sounds a lot harder
  11. Yeah figured thats the go, dont think the tiny gauge lights will add much load to the circuit...
  12. Is it ok to splice into head light wiring behind fuse box for VDO gauge back lights?
  13. Beautiful car. Trouble with factory ignition is finding a distributor with good ignitors factory J109 are moon beams. I used Bosch ones and hollowed out the J109 to act as just a plug. They are reasonably small so you may be able to hide them somewhere, wiring will go via Bosch ignitors and coils of course so a bit of a deviation from factory but you would have to look pretty hard to notice. I can find the p/n if you need it (BIM-something).
