Took the box of steel bits to the platers this lunchtime, looking forward to getting it back

Fixed the front sidelight / indicators, the sidelight bulb holders had both snapped to bits and someone had kindly superglued one side back in :roll:

Did as per Waynes guide here:

Two layers of adhesive loaded heatshrink and all good. I used some Turtle Wax glass polish that'd been kicking round for ages and it's made them look great

Had a day faffing around working out where parts go and what's broken or missing

When I got the mudflaps from the car being broken I took off the old clips, they'd all sheared and were pretty much junk

Pressed out the old nuts and sheared bits

Used a heatgun to heat up new M5 nuts on the end of a bit of bar then pushed them in when they were hot enough melting a new hole

Got the door glass and electric window in this evening, cleaned out the tracks and greased / lubricated the cable. The door rubbers with the exception of the doow to window seal were in good condition so they went back on fine, i need to buy a pair of the door to window seals at some point.

Run it up and down off a 12v battery and it's really smooth - and fast! :-D

The lock mechanism was full of 25 years of filth and caked grease. A lot of it is a pressed part so was hard to clean. I used engine degreaser in a tub with a paintbrush to get in all the bits, then took it inside and cleaned it in hot water with Lidl all purpose cleaner before rinsing in hot water. Once it's dried overnight i'll grease it up and hopefully get it back on tomorrow evening
