Head lights, side lights, full beam!!

I would guess an earthing problem. I once had something similar with my SE5a. Switch the lights on and the horn would sound. Wiggling the spare tyre would temporarily solve the problem. Untill I got round to cleaning all the earths properly.

Carcoon

That would be ideal Jim. In fact the garage itself is ok. Except for the floor sloping backwards with no drain. Hence the water accumulation problem. Temp in the garage rarely dips under 0C even when outside temp is -20C. In a perfect world I would extend the beam over the doors, install wider doors...

Carcoon

Carcoon

thanks Jim. My car will be off the road for the entire winter period and while my garage is OK, the daily driver tends to bring in a lot of snow in the winter (expat in Sweden) which melts of creating a deal of water. With the shape of the garage and its door I can't just drive into one of the frame...

Carcoon

I'm looking into getting a carcoon or other similar system such as Airflow to look after my Scimitar during the winter and am wondering if anyone has experience of these systems. I would be looking for an indoor version but due to the shape of my garage I cannot just drive into any 'carcoon' like sy...

Petrol tank

When I was working with Surrey Ambulance Service back in the '90s we had front line ambulances based on LDV conveys with the 3.5l motor. Fuel consumption was horrific.

Photo's upside-down

Photo's upside-down

The problem is the smartphones image software trying to tag the image with what it believes to be the correct orientation and then different image viewers having problems interpreting the image properties and presenting the image in the desired orientation. One way to solve this is to use freeware s...
