Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

I was just going to solder to the pads but I guess you could use an edge connector permanently fixed to the board.

Re: Rust & the 'Ministry of Transport' test

Steps shoudn't be a fail, maybe an advisory.
On my previous van I pop-rivetted some ally sheet over the holes in the steps, no problems at MOT time.

Re: Ignition lock and switch

The click from the fuse area is likely to be the x-circuit load reduction relay which turns headlights etc off when starting the engine.

Re: Is it terminal ?!!

As above, I did something similar on a Renualt TD when I tried to move it with the alternator unbolted and resting on top of the engine. It fell down and jammed the timing belt...
I felt very idiotic.
Complete new head and valves in my case but the engine was under power at the time.

Re: Welding in Warwick

These things are easily done, years ago I drove my MGB away with the crooklock still on which meant that I couldn't steer or brake...
Also filled the van up with lpg and drove off with the hose still attached which led to a pump out of commission and a bent panel on the van.

Re: Tyre 'Aspect ratio' (I think)

If profile isn't stated then its 80 or 82 per cent. Use 80 for tyre size searches.
