Since getting the car I have fixed a few wiring problems as the rev counter and voltage gauge did not work. I'm not happy with the remote door openers so have a new 7 channel remote system with 2 heavy duty solenoids to fire the door locks open. Its a full kit from Spat in the USA called Shaved 40 door kit

See how much bigger the new solenoid is compared with the old plastic unit.

I also have the bits on order to convert my vacuum wiper system over to 12v. I was not happy about the £250 ish cost of the off shelf kit so got a boat wiper motor and will make my own linkage and brackets for less than half the off shelf cost.

Fitted a 12v wiper motor today. Used original linkage and a wiper motor from a boat. Just need to get some C clips to hold the linkage in place and remove the temp safety clips. Total cost was less than £50. I have a spare boat wiper motor if anyone wants one £40 posted to mainland UK.
