My mate popped over today with his 92 Eunos VS (? I think) and showed him how to change the oil, the air filter, and changed his clutch fluid as his bit was about 1mm off the floor... All happy and he has gone off with all his cricket gear in there to Norfolk.

We're going to have fun with his car though. Rear drain needs reaffixing, his heating/AC doesn't seem to work at all, and the windows move slightly slower than glaciers... :-)

I will indeed introduce him soon, although I am not sure how much internetting he does, even though he is a youngster! I am still kicking myself for not doing his windows, but he had to rush off, and I accidentally smashed my knee into a wheel stud so was more into hobbling around swearing for a bit...

Not sure if I am setting a good example!

(By the way - how easy is it to rebuild the up/down-in-one-go type window switches compared to the normal ones? The normal ones are easy and I've done them...)

Few weeks ago, fitted a new super duper Bluetooth enabled sterio to my mates Eunos and then noticed that his rear high vis brake light wasn't working.

On investigation found some numpty had cut off the bulb holder, had a rummage and found one, so cut it in and fitted a new bulb and now it works and he is as happy as a songbird.
