Handbrake cable has just fallen trough the letter...

So have got home, have one horn wired up, will do the second later, have adjusted my clutch and washed the car

January/February 2007

The new year brought a fresh outlook on the Cinq. No more messing around, now was the time to begin properly sorting her out after all the bad luck.

So first up was fitting the yellow rear lights



The plugs and lead's were changed as they were getting a bit worn out by now, and a rear gearbox mount...
