Hi PO,

How do you find these in day-to-day use, are they visible enough?

I'm thinking of using a set on a daily where fitting indicators in the wings is a big no-no and am weighing up my options.

Thanks,

Will

Honestly - they are pretty poor, so much so that I fitted additional mini (bike style) indicators on the rear parcel shelf and behind the grille. Visibolts are possibly marginal at night, but invisible during the day, especially against chrome bumper and bright sunlight. They weren't particularly cheap either.

Ideal solution is fit indicators from a BMW or Audi - they are invisible too :D

First time out today, although just round the block. I did a few maintenance items - new top ball joint and fixed a slight leak on transmission cooler, and it's ready for what the year brings. After not using it for a while it doesn't half feel quick.

Nice Feeling isn't it when you get to play. Even if it's for a short time.

Still too much salt for a proper drive. The amount of salt Dundee puts on the roads - including my cul de sac is shocking.

That would be good - Hot Rod and hills in June? My other V8 Minor - Muj hasn't been used for a year, but it's ready to go too. It's a totally different drive to Horace, but still good.It's been sheltering in my Mum's garage whilst my son's new garage was being built. Once I get rid of the scimitar out of my garage it will return.

Well, that's the electronic line lock fitted and working, just got to try it out now. It is easier said than done what with folk with dash cams and cctv, so it may take a while. I've done about 50 miles over the last couple of days and it's going great, so roll on summer.

Good stuff Pete, you are more than welcome to pop up to mine and utilise the rear lane - private, dead end and very quiet during the week. Even more so with me hopping around for the next 5 weeks and Mabel parked up in the garage too :(
