So we discovered yesterday that the brake lights have stopped working on the hotrod. Upon inspection it turns out that the wiring loom is an utter mess, there are left over wires from all sorts of things and loose connections, missing earths and a plethora of electrical problems. So we have enlisted the help of a local auto electrical company who came and spent a few hours assessing the many problems before deciding that it would be best simply to rip out all the electrics and start again. One of the problems with the hotrod having been built by an unknown company in America before being shipped over here, is that we don’t know what parts they used for anything. The brakes being no exception, it seems that the brake switch is a hydraulic one that doesn’t unscrew like modern hydraulic brake switches, it is actually built in, inline, and can’t be removed or replaced without bleeding down and dismantling the entire brake line. So it was decided to leave it in place, and simply disconnect the electric from it and install an electric brake switch instead. So he is coming back on Monday and getting started.
The Web Design Company have invested in an original steel bodied 1928 Model A hot rod as their company transport. It is bright yellow and features a 5.7 ltr 350 V8 engine. It is loud and yes it is fast, but most important is that it is great fun, and everyone that sees it loves it… We will be posting photos, videos and details of how we get on with using a car that is almost 90 years old as our daily driver…
