Finally at the stage I think he’s ready for mot
As it happens one of the issues I needed to fix was the constantly blinking cooling light because I’ve deleted the expansion tank level sender.
To sort this you only need the remove relay No 43 sat on top of the fuse box.
This puts the system back to the same as lower spec models without the level sender.

After being a pain in the butt Tuesday morning crusty was picked up for mot on a recovery truck and came back yesterday with a fresh ticket.
Only advisory was the number plate lights being naff even though they worked they aren’t bright enough which I knew about.
LED eBay specials :-/ I should have known better lol

So new lights ordered and now the hunt for car insurance starts
Looks like crusty is finally becoming the reality :-)
