Late 5a Fog/Spot Relay Location

I've got switches and wiring fitted to my 5a and only a single relay under the fuse box so am wondering the same thing tbh
I say below the fuse box, as it's currently free to wander about I presume that's what it is of course.

MP3 ripping software

I-tunes is what I use for CDR's in the Saab Steve, just create a playlist of what you want on desktop then burn that to CDR but first of course make sure I-Tunes has ripped in MP3 format and not their lossless version, that doesn't work ask me how I know :oops:

Replacing Mechanical Fan.

I bought, following measuring, a 12" fan from the restoration show but you should really measure your own radiator as the two I have differ in size for some reason so bought for the smaler of the two

Did one today and took only 5 mins to switch to historic and get the tax.
