Re: Alloy Wheel sealant.

Morning All, Just got back from QS (waste of time as it was a total wash out) and finally had a chance to check my wheels after a long drive. I was able to remove the brake dust from my wheels by using just a hosepipe. Poorboys Wheel Sealant is definitely worth putting on your Christmas lists. Andrew.

Re: Some Security Advice For You

Whilst the Fire Service are attending to him, a real emergency may need attention. :agree: To minimise downtime on this call, they should have simply freed him from the microwave, drilled a hole in the cement and inserted a tube so he could breathe and eat. He'd have to live the rest of his life wi...

:roll: I'm not surprised though. Drivers don't even seem to slow down in foggy conditions these days. In fact, some don't bother to even switch their lights on.

Hi John,
Thanks for sharing the photos of some stunning cars. We seem to missing a photo of a certain lacquer red beauty!
Loving the Sunbeam in, I think, moonstone blue.
The XJS estates were converted by Lynx.

Merry Christmas John (am I only the second person to say that this year? :D )

Re: Mk3 headlamps

Forgot to say that The cortina had single lights before I changed them.would the light stalk connections be different on a cortina. Hi, On single units, it's usually normal for the dipped lights to go out when the mains come on. I would check for voltage on the dipped beam live feed into the relay....

Re: Mk3 headlamps

Hi,
The Cortina relay has wiring that is different than the Capri item. As you say, it switches off the dipped beam when main beam is switched on.
Swapping over to a Capri relay should fix the problem.
Was the Capri relay you tried known to be working? And were all 4 fuses in it OK?

Re: Some Security Advice For You

They should bring them back, to help those who walk amongst us who are incapable of thinking for themselves. For example, have o...
