Yes please let me know what the post is and how I can settle up :)

Please let me know how that goes, had the same thought last time I was out that the wipers seem tiny.

Been gathering parts for cavalier twin headlight conversion, what am I missing?….

Light units obviously but the frame only has two holes so how does the other side fit in place?

Also the light housing has threaded screw holes but how do the attach to the frame for the lights?

Any help appreciated, want to be able to revert to stock as well, so will need to keep the loom intact and piggy back off it.

The mounting frame is Hella.

The two screws in each unit are the adjusters, they adjust from the front so,  you need to remove the bezel.

So the screws gets all the adjustment, other two corner sit on plastic spacers, stays. 

As for fitting the bezel, best I've seen is threaded bar,  penny washer,  and wing nut, very agricultural.

Thanks makes sense. The original lights are held in by 4 screws the new units only have two on one side, guess I need to offer them up and see if I need to make a plate up or drill holes.

OK so can’t find these Cavalier door release trims so getting my local 3D printing company to make some, if anyone wants some (unpainted) let me know as once they are scanned should not cost a lot to make.

Not finding the time I need to work on the car, haven’t touched it for over two weeks.

So the missus said why don’t you book it in at Marks (my local old school village garage). Now why didn’t I think of that, going to see him in the morning get him to fit new shocks, new pinion bearing & doughnut, renew the flexi fuel lines. I have all the parts just not the time.

He will be glad to see me, likes working on a car with no black boxes.

So went to cinema to see Thor film, first cinema in over 2 years.

Well said MrsG. A bit of extra help with focussed work can really help deal with the whole time availability & subsequent frustrations. 

I hope it all goes really well 👍

Thanks Trooker, she understands my obsession, also a good reason to keep working after I retired in early 2019, pays for the hobbies!
