Looks brilliant.
The wheels/tyres combination have proven to be an excellent choice

Seats looking good in the sun



I installed a little fuse board for the various devices which need a switched live. And tidied the wiring up a bit. Not much I can do about that massive bundle as it's so tangled together.









Door seals re-fitted. Terrible pic, sorry!

Slowburn popped round the other night and dropped off some pipe for the windscreen washers.

I replaced the wind screen washer tubing at the weekend in the RR.
Check if your WR has 2 Small clips near the bonnet 'vents' that will hold the tubing against the bonnet. If they are there thread the tubing through them for a neater installation and then pass the tube  through the the reinforcing and exit through the smallest hole next to the hinge bracket.  The tube then runs down the top of the mudguard next to the bonnet release cable to the ww pump. (All is then 'hidden')

I hope this helps, I can send some images if you need them

Pics would be helpful yes. Pretty sure I don't have those clips.


I realised when I moved it that something is stopping the car from rolling smoothly, most likely a stuck brake caliper.
Other than that I need to fix the passenger window as it's really stiff in the tracks, put the bottom of the dash back together, and sort out the wiring to the headlights which has been re-done to provide better voltage, but the sidelights don't work, headlights seem to be on full beam only and one foglight only works with full beam, the other works with sidelights or headlights.

Hi Rob if its any consolation or to determine a baseline, all the lights worked okay and correctly.  I didn't play with the wiring or relays that (presumably) Richard installed though - just sorted earths and replaced a couple of bulbs I think.

Yes you need good thighs to push it around - the front left brake caliper sticks. Didn't determine whether it was the caliper or a hose.  Replacing all hoses was a no-brainer anyway so hadn't worried too much about it.  Try new hoses and fluid change first... :)

It's probably my plugging-in of wires that has confused things. :D
New hoses are on the list. I have discs and pads ready to change.

I just used double-sided sticky tape, as that's what they were held on with before. Hopefully it will hold!

I was really happy to receive my shiny brand new passenger door handle yesterday. I thought I'd pop down to the garage for ten minutes and fit it. 90 minutes later...
It looks the same as the old one but the lock barrel is thinner so I can't swap over my old lock. And it doesn't quite line up properly, so it catches. So it'll have to come off again for adjustment. It's never simple is it?

I bought a new boss for the steering wheel, hoping it would solve my horn-beeping problem, but I have bought the wrong one. Doh. I went back to my modified one and added some screws. Might do the trick.







Also spent another hour trying to sort out the front lights. I worked out the problem with the fogs, they are correct now. There's a dodgy connection on one main beam light which I need to repair, and the sidelights still aren't right but I'm getting there!

Also I was happy to have the loom from the donor GT to use to replace a broken headlight connector.

Sorting electrical gremlins is never easy on an older car as there is so many possibilities of corroded joints etc, even more so if there have been botched mods.

Lights are working well now, except I still only have full beam, no dipped.





BMW mode.

Mystery solved! I plugged in the stalk from the GT and got dipped beam. There's an obvious click when pulling it forward which the quattro one doesn't have. Just need to take the steering wheel off again and either fix mine our swap to the spare.

More little things - alarm and remote locking is working and indicators are connected now.

Okay Wellington, no more quakes for a wile, thanks.



None of these things look nice.

















In other news, all lights are now working. I swapped the hazard switch for a spare and the hazards work now, but the indicators still don't flash, just come on solid. I traced a few things and found out a few things it isn't :)
Full/dipped beams are working now too.
I've also sorted out the passenger door handle.

Working on brakes is hard work! Guess which one was stuck on.
List of parts needed is growing. At least one c.v. boot, bump stops. Abs cables maybe, brake lines, and probably hard lines as I think I've damaged one trying to get the brake lines off.
