  1. That would ruin my yearly tradition of thinking I should go and leaving it too late..... Will confirm if I can get time off tomorrow.
  2. Like you I usually use the Kyteler/Hemi method which works 95% of the time - when something being a bit of a cunt (usually the jag where the rear pipes has lots of ups and down or if a systems been completely drained) and still has a small amount of air somewhere in the system bleed as per above and then go around each corner again this time get someone to pump the brake pedal a few times and then hold it down while you crack open your bleed nipple and then tighten it before they release then pedal you should only need to do this once or twice at each corner. This pressurizes the brake fluid and makes the air into larger bubbles rather than lots of tiny ones which sometimes can't be seen you should get a few bubbles at the affected corners (no way of knowing which ones they are so do them all).
  3. PI dash is the same size - you can get the center panel as well which is where the clock moves to on the PI models
  4. Yeah I don't recall mine ever working either - might be able to clean out the rheostat to see if it helps. If its anything like the Jag it'll be pretty dim at full power anyhow
  5. The knob you're asking about is for dimming the instrument lights
  6. Looking sharp! You got a good score with that crack free dash and interior parts
  7. Uggh not fun. Did mine last year - I won't offer any advice because I obviously muffed it - hand brake pads came off the backing caused all sorts of weird issues (brakes sticking in reverse etc) Half way through fixing it now (I've taken the handbrake system off while waiting for the parts to arrive)
  8. Nice score on the spare parts, those side repeater lamp are impossible to find for one side (can't remember which one though)
  9. 'Occasional' rear seats
  10. Nice car Apparently the Majestic Majors were pretty quick for a large four door, it must be crazy fast in a small fibreglass 2 seater
  11. If you're still after wheel bearings Wilson Bro's in Annex road seem to be pretty cheap. I got bearings and seals for both front wheels of the Jag for less than $80, the best quote I'd had before this was $80 for one side.
