Finally got around to fixing the dreaded headlamp wobble. The spot welds gave up, so I decided to drill it out and install four screws with loctited nuts. Needs a clean up and a bit of paint, but the wiring looks surprising good. Of course the headlight refused to work when I put it back and I got a bit confused as to why it worked when rigged up to a power source and there was power at the socket. Took a cup of tea before I remembered it's earthed through the mounting bolts - doh! If it's not one thing it's another..............
