  1. Started the engine removal process. Removed the exhaust and the rear tin. Disconnected the wiring, and started undoing the fuel lines. Course, I forgot to clamp the line and yellow snowed a load of fuel out of the pump . Then the sleet started and I packed up.

  4. Is that like when we were 5 years old and we sat in our parent's car holding the steering wheel and making engine noises? I can see the beauty in this, no fuel costs, no wear and tear and we get to be 5 years old again :D

  8. Yes but it`ll be a full panel .
    Best to pop out the window , cut out the rust and fabricate a new piece ...

    :hattip:
     
  9. First time actually done a few jobs, fitted scat shifter(after having 4 years), replaced speedo cable and fitted gas struts to roof (after having 2 years). Tried adjusting passenger door by bending welded hinges a little, gained a bit but still have to have a shim on lower hinge.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  11. I got on the roof and finally got the solar panel fitted Didn't get it wired in, spent far too long trying to feed the wires behind panelling, that's a job for another day.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  13. Dont do much on DC but will you create eddy currents on +/- in metal bkt bud, make need a slot between holes. Google it to confirm.

  15. I think thats talking about corrosion caused by dissimilar metals, or currents flowing because the body is used as earth return.
    Which probably doesnt apply here because the fixing brackets are plastic, and both positive and negative connections to the solar cell are running down insulated wires

    Just make sure you PU seal all the holes you drilled and under fittings - silicone eventually cracks off and creates a wicking path for water..the PU will take the paint off rather than give up grip.

  18. Been to do a shop.. so went in the bus ... still smiling.. awesome job @pkrboo :thumbsup:
     
  19. Fitted a cheap steering wheel cover. Took a fair time lacing it on , deciding on what pattern of threading to do, getting it wrong and leaving a twist or two in the cord.
     
  20. Absolutely gutted. Spent 4 days stripping the (about 12 I reckon) layers of paint off my roof to repaint it. Did 2 coats of rust converter on the whole roof “just in case”, left it 3 hours as instructed. Bruised & broken (& sunburnt), but the first layer went on later afternoon yesterday.

    This morning, patches have appeared - some where there wasn’t even rust before I grinded it all back!

    Now the recommendation is to strip it off & do it all again. I am absolutely gutted.
