Opel Manta SR in the workshop
Something else you don't see every day, and I seem to be having quite a few days like that of late, an Opel Manta SR. The right side rear lamp cluster wasn't doing what it should and the dash cluster had given up the ghost, both faults sounded like bad earths and that's how it turned out. The previous owner had fitted just about the worst battery negative lead he could come up with so I fabricated and fitted an improvement. The tail lamps were missing an earth wire, adding one and cleaning the connecting plug contacts sorted that out and I cleaned and tweaked the contacts on the main electrical plug to the gauges with the same result.
