New Switch Backing Plates.


Couple of car related posts to follow, but still making things and learning all the time 🙂 Back round Nick’s place to design and make a couple of carbon fibre plates, to go behind some new switches in the Scimitar.

The headlights aren’t wired through a relay so all the current goes through the switches. The original lucas switches were good for a few years, but they burn out eventually. The chinese copies on ebay last a few hours if you’re lucky!! Most owners fit relays to solve the problem, but I never liked the original switches so I sought an alternative.

Here’s Nicks machine and laptop where we (we being mostly Nick!) Designed and built the backing plates.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
