Better dust than rust, right, Brits?

Ordered the coolant today for $AUD51 delivered. https://automotivesuperstore.com.au/nulon-rll5

The car needs doing as well so I should get 15 litres total out of this. The bought premix is 1/3 coolant to water and I still have some from the time I did the timing belt.

Success!! Found the new clock globe - not very big either 15mm long and 4mm wide.

Also I found the solder iron and Heather found the solder - just waiting on plugs and heat shrink to arrive from China

Coolant should get here Monday and was in Adelaide at midday today.

Plugs arrived today - nice white ceramic around the terminals which are totally enclosed.

Just waiting on the heat shrink to arrive and I can get it fixed.

Noticed a loose terminal on the LH headlight globe as well; first time I've seen that. Should have a spare globe around the place some where.

Started getting the bike back together today. Only replaced the one broken plug and lights working ok. Should be ready to roll on Friday.

Mostly put back together. A little soldering job on the 12 volt power socket wiring to do before I reconnect it to the battery and hook the GPS wiring in place as well.
