Ah ........... was hoping to avoid mention of the plaster :whistle:

Suppose I'd better explain.

The wing on my V8 is fitted with a high-level brake light.

Coming into Tern Hill on the A41 I noticed in my rear view mirror the light swinging the breeze.

On pulling into the next lay-by I discovered that one of the retaining screws had come adrift.

No one had a spare but Rich kindly donated a screw from one of his headlamps ( but sadly not long enough )

So with no other option we removed the other screw and disconnected the retaining leads.

Now we needed insulating tape to stop the 2 leads touching and causing a short.

Contrary to what we all believed, we had no gaffer tape/plumbing tape/insulating tape of any description.

Thankfully Mrs Oneshot came to the rescue with a box of sticking plasters :clap::doc:

Having taped up the leads we started again and thankfully nothing else came losse or fell off :sofa:

  • 3 weeks later...

Well the car didn't miss a beat on the run, but ordered a new 40" 8.5mm comp lead from Magnacor.........

2 weeks after the email with the orderform I recieved a call to say they just found it, and he would call me back later that day or the next with the price........

2 days later he calls me (wednesday 2nd) with the price £16 something plus vat plus post, so i said go ahead, he said will be in the post same day....

the cash went out on thursday, its now sunday and still no lead :thumbdown:
