Nice car, good value for money, wish i could get that much for mine, but everyone wants me to swap it for a 6 pack or something...

If you don't have the lights on you can jump start a 6 volt car on 12 volt.


If you have a small test light (a really great tool to have when working on electrics, and not exactly expensive example https://circuit-tester)

Test your light sockets with that, with bulbs removed, then the light switch as explained earlier (doing it in that order is just my preference, our methods may vary)


I have a car like that. Steel brake drums are fine, you don't need to change them unless they're worn out. I don't have shocks either. Car drives fine on all roads. Fordors don't really need them? Add some later if you want, not urgent.



And the clutch? Don't slip it & it'll last you for years. Mines still on the factory linings and it's 90 years old.

So is a split-window Corvette Stingray a 5-window or a 4-window?
