Job 101 - Fitting the Fog, Reversing & Number plate light
Now that all the work has been completed on the paint work I decided to start putting the bits I took off before painting back on the car.An easy job which simply required re-bolting them all in place.

Roger popped around for an hour so we took the opportunity to re-bleed the brakes which didn't take long.
Job 103 - P-Clipping the Handbrake Cable
I had never really been happy with the Handbrake fixing solution in the manual (Zip ties)! So when I saw that Andrew Bissell had used P-Clips to fix the cable, a much better solution in my opinion! I shamelessly copied it. :-) Thanks Andrew.

Following the first start last night I wanted to restart the car at a decent hour, but despite being on charge all evening the car wouldn't start properly, it just clicked!
I discovered after a lot of head scratching that it was because the battery terminal connections weren't great. I ended up removing the terminals, wire brushing the battery terminals, a dab of copper grease and replacing a 'furry' battery bolt and bingo, it started straight off. Happy Days. :-)
