Need to know what's broken and maybe how to fix it ? Post here

Since the weather has got a little milder I have been sorting one or two things in the early evenings - the sort of jobs that don't need too much light...
One task I set out to do was re-mounting the washer bottle which had been removed during extensive welding. When I realised that - although the RRC has a pump, it has no headlight washers, but the Disco has -I recalled an idea for improving the windscreen washers using the Disco's headlight jets to better cope with mud.
Here is how it went:
Oh, I SO want to
Unfortunately I still have some serious jobs to do - even without the little problems of tax, insurance and MoT..
Yes! One day she WILL see mud!
I still have to:
Service the brakes (at least one caliper needs replacement)
Rig all the breathers.
Fit the boot floor (a bigger job than it looks if it is to end up with reasonable strength).
Weld the inside of the NS sill.
Fit the NS front wing and grill.
Make the driver's window open properly.
Fix the central locking on the passenger door.
Anything else that the MoT shows up (I think there may be some bushes that need doing)
I think you can see that it's close - unless I find other problems* :O
* I spoke too soon, while preparing to fit the rear floor I found another bit of teabag and now face more patching and about six feet of welding. At this rate I may have to buy another reel of wire - and I thought I was going to make it

Graham, I wondered if the manual version might be better suited to a series vehicle. Roof mounting would probably be best as you could drill the roof to take a cord tied to the handle (a stick would probably be better if you’re in to engineering as you could push the handle up as well). A 1000lt IBC of water and washer mix in the back should be ample for a day in the mud. Machine Mart sells the pipe and fittings needed. Once painted cream it would blend in seamlessly. The second picture would be a cheap mod to improve the effectiveness of the wipers, a couple of tie wraps should have these fitted in no time.
5/4 of people admit that they’re bad with fractions.
I did think about fitting one sideways for bus queues , but after using public transport for 2 weeks recently, I think the poor b's have it hard enough!
