I think I do hate doing switch gear ...virtually every screw seized , alloy eaten by brake fluid crystallisation

Ahh well the switches are on their way one to finish , I would have used a set of replicas as it would be easier but on these the wiring goes inside the bar and it has a hazard switch , new starter button from zpower arrived yesterday 20hrs after ordering- g8 service Phil

Yeah probably a bit sad really ! Even worse when doing up the switch gear I noticed all the tiny anti slip ribs on the buttons had 40 yrs of grit and grime - so I cleaned them out ..
