Before our 1958 Austin-Healey 100-6 gets delivered to its new owner, classic car technician Jonn has been doing some finishing touches to this beautiful classic.

He first attended to the non-existent washer system. After finding a suitable place to mount the bag and pump, Jonn made a bracket to support the bag etc. He then found the switched ignition feed on the fuse box and routed the wiring along the bulkhead and into the car.

He then mounted the switch in the dash and ran the wire back through the bulkhead to the pump. Jonn Earthed out the pump on the frame and ran the washer pipe into the car.

Jonn drilled out the bulkhead scuttle panel and mounted the centre washer jet and connected it. He then topped up the washers and tested them.

Finally, Jonn removed and cleaned the spark plugs, wiped over the car, fitted the roof, ran the car up to temperature and was happy with the vehicle.
