Latest progress:-
Steering wheel removed with the aid of a 2 handed person - indicator & headlight switches changed & steering wheel replaced. Hazard warning light
switch now working after fitting a second flasher unit to it.
Review of all systems - fuel / oil / lighting / brakes / cooling / electrical / steering - all working ok.
Very short test drives (500m) done ok - auto gear box changes gears ok. However the gear selector has problem (fouling console )getting into park
position & wobbles around in other positions. Further investigation required.

Car checked by garage mechanic for roadworthy compliance for concessional licensing & passed on 17 Dec 21. Government paperwork delays prevented issue of licence until 14 jan 22. Have done a couple of 25km runs & all ok.
