    Wanted: Minilite, Vitesse or Rostyle alloys

    My Vitesse wheels fit ok. I did have to adjust the d post, but that was more to do with the 205 tyres than the wheel. Also, the Vitesse wheels have the correct offest at 40, where the minilites are 30.

    My first road bike was a blue AP50 MLJ220P. I went through the strict training schedule (One down, four up, here's the keys, ride on the left) rode it for ten days then crushed two vertebrae and split my collar bone because someone left a barn too close to the side of the road :) Then I had a...

    First P6 in OZ!

    Pretty sure the average wages were less than £30 a week, so nearly two weeks wages for a push button radio :)

    Headlights

    A brown/white feed comes from the shunt (behind the dash) to the light switch. This doesn't need to have to carry as much power if you're only using the light switch to fire the relays, so I used this (now redundant HD wire) for the pick up. I then ran two wires from it to the relays behind the...

    Experience, not a problem

    You can, as Colin says, just put a line in your signature. I've just done it to demonstrate. I wouldn't want to put the location of everyone on their avatar, as a lot of people like their privacy and may not like it, just as a lot of people don't have their date of birth on their profiles.

    P6 V8 Starter or Solenoid Dead?

    Try rocking the car backwards and forwards in a high gear, that may free it up if it's jammed. Check also the engine earth strap. If that's loose, it will affect the starter in the manner you have described.

    Battery Trickle Charger

    Never used one on a car, but the bike battery does go down over a period of time so I have a Noco Genius 2 battery maintainer for that. It has crocodile clips but they can be taken off leaving a couple of eyelets which are permanently connected to the battery. You just plug it in now and then...

    Delayed wipers

    Don't see a problem with that. Just find the relevant wires to and from the delay unit, and run them to the electric relay instead.
