  1. BTW @JamesLey , while you've got your drill out, you need to fit sidemarkers mate...

  2. That’d look ace! No way I’m taking a drill bit to my freshly painted doors though.
    Lamps arrived at the yard today so I’ll be trial fitting them along with starting fabrication on my front wheel carrier!

  3. A bit brutal, but the LED ones are only three 5mm(?) holes. Be brave ;).

    Worth IMHO using some Superseal connectors on the lamp wiring. That way you can just unplug them when you have to take the bumper off.

  8. Do you have a set of the right crimp pliers for superseal connectors I could borrow perhaps? Struggling to justify £35 for a pair.

  9. I have, sir. You can have a lend for the postage if you PM me your address.

    They're good connectors, but they can be beggars to crimp. Because the tolerances in the housing are so tight, slightly wonky crimps don't latch into the housing. Drove me nuts (I had to do 24 crimps for the cabling to the cab doors). Also need to use the right crimps for the gauge of cable.

  10. Sweet. Where abouts in Hampshire are you? I could always drive the van over when we’re on the road to borrow them? Good excuse to run it and to rub Hella lamps.

  11. I'm in Andover, but do flit back and forth to B'Mouth/Poole quite often. Could bring it down? Or PM your address and I'll post it.
     
  12. I’m in no mad rush as it’s a fair way down the list. If you could drop it off next time you’re down this way that’d be awesome.

  13. Yep. I’ll let you know. Where in Poole are you doing your van? Not round the back of Sunseeker, presumably ;)?
     
  14. It’s out towards Wimborne.
