just got my Pollys :)

wohoo

just got my poly eliptical (however its spelt) lights for a hugely fair (in my favour) figure

anyway.... need ot go back and cut of the side light bit (i forgot being a numpty lol)

had a little test fit to see if i could do it successfuly (i had an urge to mod) and noticed that the indicators wouldnt work... they acted as if the bulb was blown, ticking really fast.

is that becasue their is no sidelight connected? so its trying to take the extra current? of just a faulty bulb ? or me being a numpty again lol...

Re: just got my Pollys :)

yay polys! the indicators are not connected to the sidelight circuit, so the missing sidelights wont be the cause. as blu says, one bulb isnt conected or has blown, but it can only be the indicator bulbs (6), switch on hazard warning lights and check all 6 indicator bulbs. dont forget the front indicators have their own wiring connector seperate to the main wiring connector.

Re: just got my Pollys :)

Im after a pair of Marea door handles to replace the rubber ones on my Bravo which have cracked and pealed.

What colour was the Marea?
Were the door handles still in tact?
Are they painted plastic or rubber on the Marea HTX?

Also after a foglight cover for my front passenger foglight if they have one available thats not cracked?

Drop me a PM if you can get your hands on any of the above and how much they are?

Re: just got my Pollys :)

there was a boring red mareea with no handles and the one i got the lights from was a petrol greeny metalic colour with the plastic painted handles. (front ones are mine lol) but if you are de locking then the back ones are still free (so long as no one else gets there first)

HGT steering wheel... i will keep my eyes open jug... does it look like a normal one just leather????

front fogs??? yea if its the same as a marea on then i can do that (so long as they are still there)

im going next on saturday and am getting myself

marea headlight washers
the extra marea sidelight things
door handles (will probably be free courtesy of my pockets lol...)

:P

Yea wheel has the little thumb rests/grips as well as leather and nice stitching. You'll be lucky to sneak handles out as it takes so long to get them someones bound to notice.. lol

no i tried a coupe turbo steering wheel, but it cant fit, so its sat in my garage collecting dust

the hgt steering wheel is hard to find, i've been looking for a long time. there's one on ebay right now but its £60, which is double what i want to pay. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1995-02-Fiat-B...QQcmdZViewItem

Re: just got my Pollys :)

what ive done with my lights is ive taking the 4 pain wires out of the original lights and rewired them in to the new lights, It works. You need some silicon to seal the back of the side lights just so the cables stay dry,
