Fitted my replacement for my failed texmagna.
Ordered on Monday from www.carbuilder.com/uk/heavy-indicator-dip-horn-stalk-assembly-500mm
Simple enough to fit and doesn’t look to modern.

I found out that Michelin XZL tyres don't age well.....  Drove back 60 miles up the M5 from Bridgewater with a regular dunk... dunk changing with road speed and me thinking a failing UJ.  Propshaft removed, all smooth.  Tyres less so.  Bought these from a member here about 4 years ago and put on GEU about 2 years ago.  The tyre age on the tyre wall is 2001 so in fairness, it's me, and justifies why tyres are recommended to be changed after 10 years from manufacture.

Gave me quite a fright when I saw the cause of the dunk dunk.  Glad they are tubed..... :agh
