This is what I used
https://www.only944.com/partscatalog/on ... lightseal/
I'm sure with a little effort something similar could be sourced in the UK from https://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/ or similar
you need just under 130cm per light

Having struggled to start the car over Christmas after a week outside in the cold I decided it was time to replace the old battery

with the old battery out I thought I should clean the battery tray out and check for rust

not too bad for 36 years old, I can live with that.

hopefully that should start on Sunday morning for a club trip to Bicester Heritage

Lucky chap! Mine wasn't too bad either but enough water had crept into the seam that I ended up digging it all out and filling it with dinitrol to be safe.

Decided it was time for some improvements on the candles that pass as lights

including the Piaa competition Bulbs

Very impressed with the results, cant comment on whether it was down to the lamps, loom or bulbs that had the most effect but well worth the upgrade

Are you doing away with the spots Chris? I notice the box-section has gone from behind the plate

Been seriously ignoring this car, haven't touched it since September, other than to move it out of the way so other things can get in and out of the garage. Feeling slightly guilty, but life just keeps getting in the way of progress

After a disastrous weekend with the Imp on the Lombard Rally Bath, the fuel pump failed on the way to the start

I ended up with some garage time so made a start on the 924

Water pump and Radiator swap planned,

Water pump removed
