LOL, feeling your pain brother. In the last couple of weeks replaced the thermostat, radiator cap, PCM, Govenor pressure sensor/solenoid and catalytic converter.
Good thing I got $ growing outta my *** and I don't need it for anything else!!

yep - front lens is glass, made by hella I think. Its a UK model, don't know if they're slightly different spec. Don't personally like plastic lenses - they scratch and crackle and similar.

I think turning it over for ages trying to start it with no CPS followed by the alarm going off all the time has finished the battery off - good job I've also got loads of money and nothing better to spend it on!

That's nice I'd rather have glass lenses.

You could drain your battery and then do a slow trickle charge if you have such a charger.

I'll have to look into that.

Though I'd feel better having some sort of protection up front first... This was a few weeks ago. Had my steering wheel cut all the way, reversing in a tight arc.... Didn't quite clear that tree
