    Very true using Global Delivery network isn't too bad tbh with the custom charges included and as I said I have a order going in anyway for stuff I can't get in the UK

    Another question I'm sure my thermostat is 160f will that be OK or will I need a 180f one??

    Cheers

    That's around 71C so maybe not hot enough for street use so maybe a 180 would be better, don't go any hotter than that though.

    Agreed, the 160 is too cold.

    Hi I noticed on the wiring diagram that I can run the grey/white wire to a switch which I presume is for switching it on/off when I require, the switch has two wire terminals and the relay has one wire do I run a ground from the other one??

    Regards Stuart

    Going by that wiring diagram ONLY then the grey/white is the power in for the relay SWITCH circuit.
    This is used for EITHER the ign + to control it or the switch to control it.

    This ONLY controls whether the fan can run when the ign is on - OR - if using the switch when the switch is on.

    If you want to use the switch as a manual override switch then you would add it into the black wire to the sender and then via the switch to ground. This would trigger the fan as if the sender was saying it was too hot. The switch would not illuminate if wired in this way though.

    Personally I would not bother with the illuminated switch (use a non illuminated one) but I would add it into the black wire circuit as the override. Run the grey/white to an ignition controlled circuit so fan goes off when ign off.

    If you refer back to my wiring diagranm I posted you can see how I wired it - if you want a bigger version PM me your email addy as I can't post bigger images here.
