The List.

I have been thinking ever since I got her what I would like to do with Martha.  First off I had to fix the windscreen washer, which I did, and did very well.  It works, what more is there to say?!!

I also fixed the sun visor that was held on by a screw!  The plastic at the side towards the middle had broken at some point, and the previous owner had put a screw in place of it to hold it onto the clip above the windscreen.  It was a simple case of yanking out the plastic that was left & flipping it around so that the other side of the plastic was sticking out!  Simple!

I also gave te visors a good clean, they were pretty filthy! I was exceptionally suprised at the change of colour when I started cleaning them!

Marthas left eye was also a bit broken, it was very dim, and I wasn’t sure if it was the bulb or something more serious.  I took the headlamps out & swapped them over, and found it wasn’t as simple as a broken bulb, but someone suggested looking at connectors on the wiring, and polishing them up to see if that helped.  Sure enough, when I looked at the connector, it was exceptionally grubby, so I cleaned it up using a bit of sandpaper, and voila!  A perfectly working headlamp!

Other little things I have done include getting new rubbers for the pedals, replaced the original glove box liners, and a gorgeous crocheted blanket for the back seat (it had to be done!!).

So.

Onto ‘The List’.

The list is a little reminder for myself of all the work I would like to (one day) carry out.  And here is the list;

In no particular order;

  • Weather strips front & rear
  • Flash & bonnet handle
  • gear stick gaiter
  • carpets
  • CD player
  • Replace windscreeen washer jets for twin jets
  • Clean & re-chrome bumpers
  • New light buckets & rims
  • Re-spray
  • New interior
  • Sort out wiring (tidy up!)
  • Clean engine bay
  • Quarterlight mirrors
  • Seals on quarterlights

So not much eh?!  If you have some bits you would like to offer in return for cake, drop me a line!!
