The season starts and the linkage is finished.
   
   



   

   
   The work on the steering rack was successful. It's much more precise. Now, the new project can start.

Can anyone use these side lamps? If not I'll cast them away. They are not nice and the glasses of the red one are dull but maybe some parts can be used. I don't want money for them but I think it's better to ask before dumping them.

On my MK IV I have three Trico wiper arms all adjustable in the length. Does anybody know which arms these are and where I can buy it?

   I've just replaced all of mine with a stainless steel set purchased from Holden, but there are numerous other suppliers - just do a google search.  Most will post to Europe.

   Another supplier:

   Note that my originals were black but I was happy to change mine to stainless steel.  I'm not sure where to get black ones.

   Thank you. I found another page where you can build the wiper arm you would like. Really nice: TEX Automotive

Bye, bye, photobucket. I migrated to "Postimage.org". Most of the pictures should be visible again.

 Well done DKP for taking the trouble to post the images again. Good info for the few members (like us) who are not frightened to improve our Mk IVs.
