Maybe it can make it to 4 - did you notice that there is still a red wire attached to the black wire - although this time it is heat shrinked.

I did, that's the Nextbase kit though, the wire from their fuse attachment is red so as long as all the joins are good then I'm not worried.

It is, Halfords did it. I'm not sure whether to ask my dealer if they can tidy it up. What would you suggest?

Update: I've booked it into my dealer for them to have a look and check it over. I don't want to take any chances (these things always happen to me).
Hi

My wife bought me a camera for Christmas so I spoke to my dealer about getting it fitted and he mentioned they had someone in on New Years Eve who wanted theirs redoing after Halfords had initially fitted it.

I guess you get what you pay for as the Halford's website quotes £10 for fitting.

Cheers

That's interesting to know! Not just my branch that can't fit them properly then! Would your dealer fit yours for you?
