Cheers

Cheers for that mate!! Yeah figured it might be but wanted to be sure...

Not that I did that with the XT, but any reason why it should not be tipped upside down??

theres a mercury switch i think in it that if put past a certain angle blows and stops all electronics in the car working.

it's a fire prevetative during a rolling crash

I thought it was because the laser stuffs up in the stacker :? And wouldn't a mercury switch would need power for it to work?

i have a bf and changed the circuit board at the front of mine and i tipped mine upside down without knowing about the mercury switch and it still works fine. So i guess the mercury switch needs power to work (which would make sense)

Hi Glenn (and anyone else interested)

I will be doing up a mini doco on how to remove the ICC fascia and paint.. Most people know how to basically paint, but I'll do a step by step for you all...

WATCH THIS SPACE!!

Cheers

Dozer
