I have found I have to take the nose cone off quite a lot and that involves disconnecting the indicator lights. Recently the inevitable happened and one of them stopped working because of all the constant fiddling. So time to do a proper job. Interestingly she doesn't behave like most cars, where the flashers run double-speed if a bulb fails. They still run at normal speed.

designed to be taken apart. I also treated myself to a heat gun so that
not only are the joints all soldered (rather than just twisted
together) but they also have heat-shrunk insulation on them. Should
