Re: Type 85 Cruise Control


My '88 has cruise.  As to its detailed workings, I'll have to leave you in
suspense until next week sometime.  My car is_still_at the shop (since
Midsummer) and I've got to go have a look next week sometime, possibly to
pick it up.  The project got delayed for many reasons, the latest being my
decision to have the car completely painted.  It seemed to make sense as it
was completely disassembled, the body sitting on a trolley waiting for
assembly.  It should be out of the paint shop this weekend and on the road
by the end of next week at the earliest.
