Cheers for that ^, although I could probably do with having a clear out of my own!

This Tex Magnalite indicator switch has 4 blue wires coming out of it. Someone had chopped the original wires and twisted the blue ones on resulting in me not knowing which was the feed, the earth, the left or right flashers.
The wheel is missing too but I can cancel them manually.

I'll dig the soldering iron out tomorrow.

It still says cream on the v5. I would have kept it cream. Probably would have removed the covers before painting too. The scotch blocks got the chop.

That cream looked a nice colour, every other damn series on the road is blue.

If it helps I can dig out the one I have in the garage somewhere and see which wire goes where.
Alternatively, you could brave the self-righteous, priggish, incompetence that is the Series 2 Forum and see if the pathetic twat running that, managed to loose the pictures of the Tex Magnalite connections like everything else.
