    Default Frog friendly Auto Elec in outer easterm Melbourne

    Hi All

    I am contemplating some electrical upgrades on the 4CV, to encourage reliability and to allow me to have some amenities such as a 12V charger /power outlet in a car which is 6V

    Am currently battling away with cable routing from back to front. Current score is Reg 1 Andrew 0

    The bigger stuff - more fused circuits, installation of the 12V converter, requires somebody competent, as I want to arrive in Inverell and not end as a smoking ruin.

    It can be hard finding Auto Elecs who are flexible and are familiar with old Frogs

    I am in Olinda ( Dandenongs, east of Melbourne )

    Does anybody know an RER / old Frog friendly auto elec in the outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne?

    All my contacts are miles away in south east ( moved recently )

    Would be grateful for any pointers

    Best Wishes

    Andrew

    Hi Andrew,

    Not outer eastern - but eastern (and on the Belgrave train line, which could be helpful? - for transporting you, not the car! ): T&J auto electrics in Hawthorn have a lot of experience with French cars and they are old-fashioned auto-sparkies.

    Dear Ian

    Many thanks

    Had heard rumours about them, so it is good to have your recommendation as well

    Son and I were burned with a referral to somebody in Malvern for an old Norton we were doing, so am a bit cautious and it is good to hear from somebody who has real-life experience of anybody who is recommended.

    Am battling on alone this week, but may have to run up the white flag next week

    Many thanks

    Andrew
