I may be staying the obvious, don't leave it in the headlight area, reroute it somewhere that you can get to if you ever need it. I have mine behind the plug for the tow hook.

A trickle charger is the key for non-daily cars, IMO. Not easy when it's outside though. Is a solar battery minder a workable solution?

Damn, I got excited when I read the title and thought someone had found the genuine umbrella that fits into that little sill compartment.

I'm not sure how you would, sorry. I imagine that there would be a pin on the alarm unit that gets 12v if the ignition switch is working. I just went to each for my workshop but it's been moved by...

What happens when you turn the key?

I look forward to seeing the results Ger.

I've been admiring a couple of 9x6 retrofits that I've seen pics of recently. Lots more work in these though as they are using the a simple screw in...

Hood aluminium?

Miata need it for weight distribution as their engine is in a particularly pedestrian location.

Well I'm impressed, again!

I imagine that your printer wouldn't be able to interpret any colour as 'thin white' so having a layer of white would mean that they are no longer lit. Perhaps a fine...

I'm torn, but given the modernising approach that you've taken all over the car, I'd say that this change would be in harmony with that general approach.

I'd definitely try the eBay options at that price.

Get the bumper off first and eyeball it though, preferably with a pressure tester attached, it may not be the radiator?

Cool, got it. I could be wrong, but I think it's conventional to say a clutch is engaged when your foot is off the pedal, and disengaged when you have depressed the clutch pedal.

Clutch adjustment?

When you say 'the clutch no longer engages', do you mean that it starts transmitting torque again?

i.e. Push clutch 3/4 of the way to the floor and you can change gears ok, but push it all the way...
