Let's not count our chickens yet bud.

Gotta get product out yet, fit the steel structure into the new skin, get the bonnet catches to align and maintain the gaps all round.

Well that’s annoying, come to work on modifying the pedal box to accept the brake and clutch pedal switches and they’re no where to be found. Pffft

Anyone shed any light.........
...... no not on the where abouts of my switches.

1, Looking at the brake light switch (on t'interweb) it seems just a normal 2 pin switch........ will a universal one suffice?

2, The clutch has a switch im guessing to do something to the idle........... but im noticing it has a second switch which engages when depressed, it this to cancel cruise control or something? Or are both switches required to operate the engine correctly?

Thanks

J
