...are they Scootacar mk2 back lights?

 Rear lights on the Wrigley were made by PMG, are they a match for Hunslet's finest?....

 Wired up a battery for it today. Some faint clickings were heard coming from deep within the control box. After 45 years there's life in the old dog yet,  :D   stay tuned for future instalments of the Wrigley comeback show......

Hi Stuart

I knew you were into some odd stuff.

Eddie Mays  last used this electric chair 15th August 1963

This was the last execution in New York prior to the death penalty being declared unconstitutional in New York.

Dont worry Stu pot, Mk2 rear lights can be bought new, not a rare item like mk1's are!
Not sure you can get these new anymore!
Cream Mk1 Scootacar

You may be right, I just check with the company that sold them and they are no longer on the list.

 THE WRIGLEY LIVES!   :o 

 After much fiddling about earlier today, the Wrigley burst into life at just past 11am....



 Nothing wrong with that is there!  ;D  8)  Now all it needs is a bit of a wire-brushing and some silver paint round the frame....

Well done! Not really a bubble car, more like a chewing gum car !

It's good of the council to put a line down the middle of the pavement for you to follow!  ;D

"A bit like a chewing gum car" Marcus? Now I'm worried, our local council has a white van that automatically scrapes gum off the pavement and flicks it in a big dustbin, look out Stuart, I can see it coming! Seriously Stuart, well done for getting it going, how far can you go on a single battery charge?

Stuart, that looks great - though you could look a little more like you're having fun.

Does it just look like it darts to one side every time that front wheel merely sniffs a bump, or does it actually steer like that?  Your knuckles look slightly white from a distance......

You can pull up alongside P50 drivers, making comments like "what possible need can there be for such a huge vehicle?...."

 At long last, proof, if it were needed, that there are indeed some things in life smaller than a Peel P50....   ;)
