Ja-Nee.

Ten spyte van “The day After”

N Geseende Kers Seisoen vir almal


This was my Christmas Day yesterday. (Happy to delete if too much “Thread Hijack”)

Full thread here: http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/206 ... er-stripes




Christmas Day jobs.
My time.
Solo.

Harley and I ate a whole tray of Fox’s biscuits, Dreamies, some Tuna, and some other treats.

Eventually by 10.00 am I was bored with eating and sitting still and went out to mess with the Blazer.
Checked the oil, water, belts, tyre pressure, cleaned the inside glass, grinned at it, thought of the changes so far and grinned some more etc.
Then went to fetch the vintage style horn I had bought a few weeks ago, the sound system and reverse light has to wait till I have a responsible adult on site who knows how to work a multimeter and connect wires safely, but that can happen any time soon.

So the first task was to find the existing horn.......

Not anywhere in the engine bay, not to be seen up front by the radiator.

So decided to remove the headlight surround, heavy cast aluminium piece.

Image

Found one.

Image

And another one, which does not work.

Thinking I may look for an original grille to replace this aluminium unit too.

Image

Supervisor in place.

She has to be around to help, weird creature.

Image

And said offending, anti-social item fitted.

Image

Video of previous horn vs new one.

Before that, I had fetched the new ductape that I had ordered last week and the wheel trims and started by putting two layers of tape on the outside edge of the wheel rims in an attempt to get the stainless steel trim rings to stay in place when I go drive the truck. @PaulY made the suggestion from his past experiences that had resolved a similar issue. Let’s hope they stay put, it hurts to see money rolling down the motorway.

Image

I REALLY REALLY LOVE THESE TRIMS.

Image

Done.

Image


Potential T-Shirt design.

Like it??

Later all.
