  1. Woooow, long time. Looking forward to moving this to new shed and getting stuck into the rest of the floor/chassis repairs. She gets put on a trailer this Wednesday, many excite!
  2. Does 2k fuck up your weld though? Coz I use crc zinc spray and it's like welding clean steel
  3. Also jumping on the bandwagon here- rust converters are shit. I've had panel beaters tell me this, and I have seen it myself. Its not uncommon for light rust to form UNDER the shitty rust converter finish.. its just plain terrible stuff. Probably fine to paint it over 99% mechanically de-rusted surfaces to treat any shallow pitting, then sand it all off again before epoxy, but otherwise no. The problem is trying to explain to people that its simply not a magical wonder fix and the labels on the bottle are a lie. Edit. Everyone can do the test themselves. Take a piece of st
  4. Amazing. Is it going to banana when removed off the plug?
  5. This is getting more and more incredible!how would they have made rails in the factory? Surely they wouldn't have had access to a press large enough to do it in a few stamps like they do these days?
  6. Damn that looks gooooooood.
  7. Rather than a servo, there are 12v garage door style remotes and receivers that would work well. I have one sitting around I think, pm me your address
  8. Wow 250 for nos reflectors seems like a bargain now. Maybe inflation? Or I'm not as broke as I was?
  9. Why would temps be high? Isn't it rated for 300deg c? Inlets and outlets easy, could simply lay up a thicker pad of material and drill /tap for screw in nipples.
  10. Damn that's a great idea (composite overflow) I need a weird shape one for the bike, why didn't I think of that ffs. I wouldn't bother with that plastic but that's just me. Foam works great, easy to shape and you can dissolve it out later on. Plus it's cheap and accessible
  11. Unbelievably cool. Might want to extend the load cell bracket so that it acts as a stop if the load cell or linkage fail to restrain things.
  12. You could buy a cheap Chinese w2a intercooler and run a coolant line through the wet side, then feed the air side by a naca duct. /hot air balloons etc.
  13. Surely that spare 200cc motor is going into the gn!!??
  14. @Roman is really good at cfd stuff and also graphs. Dave plz help.
  15. Doesn't really mean there is a problem or fault. The safari has an engine driven fan that runs 100% of the time, and it's a grunter, maybe that's just what it needs?.
  16. Yeah that's epic. Don't worry about minor flaws! It is hand made after all! My bits anyways have a few spots where the weave has been high and iv rubbed through to the layer below. I actually like it, keeps it honest.
  17. Kinda sounds like your bits of cf were too large? I mean, you could chop it up real small, mix it with resin in a cup and then kinda spoon it in
  18. yeah that is honestly the best way if its possible. A 10mm radius would do wonders for how that turns out. Also, don't cut the CF too close to the edges as the over-hanging material adds valuable weight to pull the material around. your plug looks great so far! Don't bother getting the finish too perfect because its largely irrelevant to how the outside visible face will look. Just make sure you wax and PVA it more than you think you need to. Edit. Fuck you, roman.
  19. OH!, actually. Two things. Firstly, that dimmer circuit should be the first thing to check. If it is faulty then just remove it and join the door switched wires to the interior lamp so they just turn on/off as per normal. secondly, its possible that the dimmer unit is always on with 6v being pulled across the lamp but at very low amps. Dont quote me on any of this, because I really have no idea what im talking about. Maintenance chargers are the best thing ever. Seriously under rated bits of kit.
  20. Have some pieces of plastic (cut up big black sack would likely work) and have them handy while you lay the CF. With sharp corners like this, you may have difficulty getting the CF to stay flat on the surface. If this is the face, push plastic on top and squeegee out the air. You'll find it works really well to keep it all sucked down tight.
