The boot lid release button on the citroen C4 failed a few weeks back. So I eventually got it out and got a price for a new one. We’ll is have been happy to pay ten quid, is have stretched to twenty. But when I was quoted fifty quid… Well, I just found a little push button switch and lashed it up. Perfect and works beautifully.
Since writing this blog I think I have moved house a few times, this time we moved from Bracknell in Berkshire to Cattistock in Dorset. We have a larger house in a more idillic setting, and importantly a larger garage.
There is a lot of work to be done to turn the garage into a decent space, fiorst off I need to get the ligths and sockets working, I am not sure where they’re fed from so haven’t been able to deduce why none of them work. Maybe I will just install all new and feed from the consumer unit in the studio next door.
Hacked a patch out some new 2 mm thick mild steel.
Did it in the evening, the neighbours will not miss that aspect of me.
Not too bad I didn’t think, the camera lense makes it look less concentric than it actually is.
Having done all of the hacking and noisy stuff far away at the garage so as to not upset my direct neighbours or worse still wake the littlun, I retired to the garage for some fettling with the bastard file. I now think that I need to slit the exhaust where the patch will pass through the bracing braket.
