AllAlloyCup progress
Hi Ruairidh,

Thanks for the kind comments.  My first job
was as an instrument  Technician for 6 years,
and am still using the tools kindly
given to me by Prof Jennett , ( a neuro- surgeon)  
Who I worked for at Killearn/ and at SGH Govan.

I’ve made up some alloy P-clips
to carry the 7 core cable I’ve run to the inside
Of the boot, running along the lower NS body.
I made a separate loom carried on the
rear no plate and it connects to this 7 core
cable in the floor of the boot via a 5- bullet connector.

I’ve got 2x brake/sidelights/no plate illumination plus 2 x indicators
Mounted on the rear number plate.
Plus because I’m using LEDs, I’m taking a wired earth wherever
I’m running cable.

I’m trying to keep wiring integrated with the body tub
Rather than have any on the chassis.
Makes everything easier for dismantling
Should I opt to paint the body off the car at some future time.

Sounds good.

I am on the case for "Cup Model Gathering" at Guildtown!
Whatever you do, don't take my word for it!

Why not make it a GE gathering to include
One or two Brooklands and a visiting Stadium or Saloon?

I’ve seen XX. xxxx at Scone... perhaps
Malcolm might bring his up?

Roll on the warmer weather...

All the best

Looking very nice & neat! Not sure that I would bother with the additional complication of fitting a brake-light switch to the handbrake. I use the footbrake & handbrake together most of the time, but the footbrake is used a bit more of course because the left hand is needed for steering & gear-changing; the handbrake is hardly ever used by itself.

Hi David

Thanks for this tip I may take it!

All the best and thanks again for all your thoughtful advice and support with parts supply.

Kind regards
