Interesting Things Needed

22 October 2018 - 09:25 PM

Having fitted LED headlight units which include an indicator function, I am planning on removing the god-awful ugly nosecone indicators needed for IVA. I was thinking of just replacing them with funky looking motorbike indicators but I don't really need indicators there.

 

Any suggestions for something different (and to cover the holes)? Maybe stickers or some sort of novelty item (bull horns?  :crazy: )...

Led Headlights

Anyone know if these will fit a standard GBS lamp unit? If so, are they plug and play or will they need relays or something?

Armrests

I was out with a Caterham owner a couple of weeks ago (sorry  :blush: ) and he had these cool armrests fitted to his doors:

They hook over the cockpit edge, so double as straps to hold the door in. I'm planning on something similar for my doors and was thinking of using a sheet of ally, cut to shape and covered with foam and vinyl - does that seem like an ok way to do it or is there a better material to use?

 

I'm thinking about the ally really - would PVC-type stuff be better? I just remember having trouble bending that, when making wind deflectors...


Not Idiot Proof Enough

So, you know how it's supposed to be near impossible to NOT locate the HT leads on the spark plugs? Well, let me tell you a story...

On cylinder 4 in particular, it seems you can push the rubber bit in and actually COMPLETELY miss the top of the spark plug but, and here's the funny bit, it looks like it's on fine. So when you go to start up and your engine runs like a dog and you get that sinking feeling of 'what the Hell have i broken now', when, in fact, you're just running on 3 cylinders.

Oh, how I laughed when i worked this out a mere 3 days later...
