#384385 Fitting Wipers And Squirters Best Option

Posted by Smig380 on 06 May 2018 - 03:22 PM in Fitting & bodywork

I put wipers on my Zero a couple of years back. It was a mini motor and winding gear (cut to fit), with blades from eBay (again had to do some cutting) and a washer kit from CBS, used a solid plastic bottle in the end rather than the bag option.  Did all the wiring with separate in-line blade fuses rather than disturbing the existing fuse box. Got through two MOT's so far.

#384327 Official Stoneleigh National Kit Car Show Information

Posted by Smig380 on 05 May 2018 - 12:16 PM in Events

Keith,

 

How easy would it be to come in Sunday morning and depart just after lunch ? Would I be able to park with the club and still be able to get off site again ?




#384326 Leicester To Stoneleigh Sunday 6Th May

Posted by Smig380 on 05 May 2018 - 12:05 PM in Events

Love to join you chaps. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get out of Stoneleigh about lunchtime ? I've got other duties in the afternoon and don't want to get trapped. I know it's the AGM but I've no chance of staying that late

 

Cheers




#383303 Sadly, My Camper Van Has To Go

Posted by Smig380 on 22 April 2018 - 03:23 PM in For sale

Hi Everyone,

 

I want to give Rhocar folks first dibs at my camper van, as it would make an ideal support vehicle/festival vehicle.

 

It's a Toyota Regius Windtourer which was professionally converted by Wellhouse (award winning outfit near Huddersfield) in August 2013, from a July 2000 registered Japanese base vehicle. It's basically a T5 sized camper with the following:

Automatic Transmission, 4WD,  2.7litre Toyota petrol engine (same engine as Land Cruiser etc.) with LPG conversion by Wellhouse. This means cost per mile on a par with a T5 diesel but no NOx, SOx emissions and clean as far as London environs are concerned. It's got a bit over 70000km on the clock (from 35000 when I bought it)

Aircon, parking/reverse warning, UK SONY stereo & CDPlayer.

Double rockn'roll bed.

Pop-up roof with single bed space

Sink & Drainer with cold water plumbing & water pump

2 ring Smev hob burning Camping gaz

Fridge

Both front seats swivel 180deg.

Leather upholstery.

Webasto cabin heater (uses petrol from main fuel tank to keep you toastie warm at the wrong end of April.

Cat 1 Alarm

70w solar panel plus hook-up

Towbar (fitted but never used).

 

No built-in shower or toilet but you can have the porta potty that came with it (unused)

 

I have to put a price on this forum so I will say £18000.

 

If anyone registers an interest then I'll upload some photographs. Thank you for looking.

 

Simon

#382216 Oil Filler Cap Pinto

#377416 Fitting Wipers For Mot

Posted by Smig380 on 07 October 2017 - 12:51 PM in Fitting & bodywork

I put a screen and wipers on a couple of years ago. Went for mini system on eBay as GBS were a bit pricey. It wasn't a quick job, hints on this blog were very helpful but beware your screen position may be unique to your car so there's a lot of trial and error positioning the wipers themselves and they had to be cut to size. Used a basic CBS washer bottle kit which was the easier part, but measure up your space for the bottle first as there are size options. The elation at getting an MOT pass was pathetically worth it though, best of luck !

If you opt to remove screen for a quick hit MOT don't forget to mount your wing mirrors somewhere.

Apologies, I can't make next week as we are on hols in Florence.

 

Hope to make Bull's Head in July, at least it's far enough to warm up the Pinto !

 

If anyone's cruising in Leics. over the weekend please drop in on St Botolph's Festival at Ratcliffe on the Wreake Saturday 11am to 3pm for refreshments, although I know a lot of you are heading to Wales so hope you can make the most of the weather.

If I can bodge a rear bracket for my new alternator in time I'll join you for a shake down run



#372457 Side Doors For Rh 2B

Posted by Smig380 on 11 May 2017 - 07:18 PM in Fitting & bodywork

Salut Olivier,

I found some side doors for my zero on eBay last year for less than half the cost with GBS. They would probably work on a 2B but an expert is welcome to contradict me. I can find the link for you if you're interested. Some of the local owners here are proud of their bricolage efforts too.

Bonne chance

Simon



#371691 Leicester To Stoneleigh

Posted by Smig380 on 29 April 2017 - 06:14 AM in Events

Was planning to but scuppered by my alternator packing up. Don't think I'll have the time even to swap in one of Derek's kind loan items, bit frustrating...



#371379 Stilton Run 2017

Posted by Smig380 on 24 April 2017 - 08:54 PM in Events

Glad you had fun. Gutted to break down when even Keith didn't ! Hope to get time to put an alternator on for a bit of Stoneleigh
