I didnt realise comparison sites included classic policies. They didn't when I tried a few years ago. Which did you go to ?

Welcome Shog and well done for buying a TF. Had you looked at a few before buying or did this one leap out straight away. /

Those are the exact 3 wire flasher relays ive used on my MGB Mike. That car had separate old flasher units for indicators and hazards, one rated for 2 bulbs and the other for 4. As one had failed and the other was getting unreliable I replaced both with these new types.  They just needed an earth wire to the 3rd terminal then were plug and play. They have the advantage I can now use any combination of LED and incandescent bulbs at all for the indicators on that car..

Notanumber replied to the topic 'Servicing?' in the forum. yesterday

Ive always done my own servicing and have only ever paid to have a service done on fairly recent cars where it might significantly affect it's resale value.
A pair of axle stands,a trolley jack, a socket set and popular sized spanners are pretty much all you need for servicing a TF unless you need to dive further.
For the mileage you are doing an oil change every other year is more than enough but do more regular checks on the oil, coolant and brake fluid levels, topping up where necessary. An annual check of the brake pads is always worthwhile.

A cam belt change should be done every 5 years. It can be done by an averagely competent weekend mechanic but is a bit of a pain due to the tightness of the crankshaft pulley bolt and the difficulty in accessing it in a rear engined car.

You have done well fabricating this panel.  How much difference does it make to the ground clearance in centimeters?

It looks very well made. Does it need to be wound or is it battery driven?

You can swap the standard indicator flasher unit for a modern non current dependant one. I did this recently on my MGB project car as I was introducing LEDs. Cheap as chips to buy. Where the indicator flasher relay is located on an F / TF though I'm not sure. If in doubt as Airportable says just buy led indicator bulbs that have parallel resistors built in, they are available.

Use of those white plastic retainers were a poor design as they inevitably crack the square holes they fit into which can spread to visible cracks along the top of the binacle

They are certainly a strange and confusing bit of styling. The ones on the fuel filler flap are arguably even odder, real allen key bolts but held by a retaining ring with no length of thread at all behind.

It could be worth repeating this in the PSCAN sub forum to get a quicker answer https://www.the-t-bar.com/forum/pscan-uk-diagnostic-tool-forum   As far as I can see the current version is 0438.  
Id think the easiest thing would be to download and install it, allowing it to overwrite whatever older version may be on your PC.
