Emissions are just a bit too lean, but I didn't have time to fine tune after I calibrated the cpr and fueling. 0.37 % Co and 37ppm HC isn't that far off.

It's about time my D got more attention....


Has it been that long since I did anything with my own D ?

I've been busy doing a realistic 3 month project in 8 weeks to write code and commission a water treatment works that was mainly completed Friday 29th. So, time to start giving my own car a bit of attention.

After giving the D a quick one over, I took it in for its annual MOT and it passed !

The only thing required were that headlights needed realigning after I changed one of the H4 lamps before going.

The emissions were spot on ;)

I say this every year bit this year is definitely definitely definitely the year I give it more attention as there is a small patch on the underside where I noticed that the epoxy is just starting to lift. A bit of POR15 should nip it in the bud.

Fluids change and LED lights are first on the cards :D

Side markers also changed and flasher unit changed to club LED compatible unit.

Not much, but at least it's a start :)

alright.

Can I ask how this works out with the fog light modification? The three pin on the inner brake light? might contempate buying a set....

It works perfectly with the fog light mod. I already had the LED's fitted to mine when I wrote the how-to for it

I suppose it depends on what your fog light mod is. It sounds like you mean you are using a dual filament bulb and have possibly some custom wiring to use 2 different "modes" on the same bulb....? Possibly even some custom "work" on the board.
I've never heard of a fog light mod using extra wiring and dual filament bulbs. If that is what you have then no, these particular LED bulbs won't support that. But they will support the more convention fog light mods, including the one we sell: http://www.deloreanclub.uk/uk-fog-light ... n-kit.html
