I can read my odometer! Thanks to Adam for soldering LEDs in place of the factory bulbs, Roissy.co.nz for identifying what pin they were connected to and a bit of re-wiring by me.

Hopefully, this is the end of the trials and the tribulations can begin

You might be surprised I've found 80s vag technology to be surprisingly reliable in terms of not being left stranded.
But yes expect many niggles basically forever....

Argh damn cats! One snuck in and got locked in the garage for 24 hours. Again. Looks like she spent the whole time going under the house on the muck, then walking on and sleeping on my bonnet and roof.

I have to agree with VW'n. I have owned my '88 MK2 Golf for 22 years and up until 4 years ago it was a daily driver. It only let me down once, the hall unit in the distributor failed and thankfully it was when I tried to back out of the garage. Yes, I have had to do ongoing maintenance but this is expected of an old vehicle.

Have you topped off the tank so you can take the long way home?

Good idea :D I like your optimism.
That reminds me I haven't looked into the issue where it was really hard to get fuel into the tank. Getting 90 litres in will takes ages at the rate I was filling it last time.

New problems have arisen. The brake lights thing is new. Dodgy earth maybe. Water in headlight must be from it being jet washed. Brakes - will bleed them again and see.



New HT leads arrived today.



It may have failed its WoF again, but it looked awesome doing it  The drive home was great, nice and smooth and pleasant to drive.

Well, look at the positive,  at least they can only do a recheck on the failed issues if you go back in the next few weeks.

I'm still deciding whether or not I like these. I think I do, they're something different. Will fit them and see how I feel about them later as they're easy to remove.

It's your car Rob, if you like them then leave them on. I think they look good. ;)
