  1. hey dude . cheers yea it has got the auto box still debating wether to swap it out for a manual box . or a different engine all together?? i am looking and thinking of putting a 3.5 v8 rover engine in it? decisions decisions im part restoring it and part modifying it, taking insparation from euro styling and hot rod styling. so its going to be something completly different. will keep you posted
  2. hey dude easiest way to check the problem . make a makeshift bulb tester with 2 pieces of wire and a bulb holder with a bulb in it . . . well take the negative wire off the battery (leaving the positive on the battery) connect the bulb tester between these (bridge the negative terminals) then the bulb should light up . upon this go through each fuse individually taking them out and putting them back in, once the bulb goes out that is the circuit loosing power, thus investiagting upon that circuitry whats loosing power . hope this helps mike
