David -

Scrub that idea - Rookie error on my part !   ::)

Won`t work like that as if DRL is illuminated then the indicator function would stay illuminated and not flash.

You would need to revert to your plan B of a USA style flasher unit

Sorry   :-[

You can do it with two heavy duty diodes attached to each light. 

I would use 1000V diodes either 6A or 10A

Put one diode in line with the +ve indicator feed to light - anode towards the light (line on diode towards filament)

Put one diode in line with the +ve sidelight feed to the light - anode towards the light (line on diode towards filament)

That should sort you out 

Diodes can be got from here

Looks like a universal solenoid for a starter motor

Indeed it is - a lot of the older classic cars ad them before Lucas started bolting them to the side of the starter motors  ;-)up

I`m really enjoying all this thread for the simple reason that unlike most of the build threads on here that always end up looking like a Buggy, I have absolutely no idea how this one is going to turn out

Keep up the good work mate - refreshing to see something very different  ;-)up

Looks a mighty fine weekend

And I could do with some of those pic for the calendar please  :D

Just checked on the stenna site for interested parties the Harwich ferry is £332 for a buggy and 2 people return doing cheapest options. Discount price will be looked into but no guarantee of one.

Have not price checked the tunnel option yet.

Traditionally, the best times to haggle with Stenna seem to be around the first week in November once we have numbers to play with - Tunnel would mean an overnight somewhere, so would need to find somewhere secure for the Buggies

Not sure how Brexit is going to impact this one as yet either and what other travel documents we will need apart from International Driving Permit which is available from your Post Office

That road down into Mevagissey can feel a bit "lively" at times, especially in a lightweight Buggy (worse in wet weather) there is also another patch of road as you escape Mevagissey on the other side onto King Harry ferry that does the same as well.

If the problem also happens on other roads then fair enough, but I wouldn`t panic just from driving down there  ;)

Any chassis shortened post 1999 must have been IVA or later SVA tested to be legally on the road.
