  3. You ask "how do people learn this". IMO we don't normally act pro-actively as you are seeking to do. We tend to "learn" by fixing our own problems when they arise or as part of implementing a "project" like building a whole car or making an upgrade to an existing one. Much depends on your background knowledge of electricity in general, did you study Physics in school, do you understand the basics of simple circuits, OHMs law, relays, electromagnets etc.... if not then why not pay around £50 for a kids educational kit on "Electricity and Magnetism". Have fun as you put together basic circuits, understand how electricity behaves. Then get your hands on the circuit diagrams for the various parts of a cars electrical systems, youll find these on line, in loads of places, concentrate on a bit at a time, for example, how is the ignition spark generated ?, how does a light flash, why does a fuse melt ?. Then, when, in the real world, you face a real problem, like the rather general question "The guages don't work" you will instinctively know how to go about looking in more detail at the various wires and sensors that might be involved. This is just my advice for what it is worth.

  4. As to uniqueness, I did some maths the last time this topic came up: "You can just specify anything you want - to bore you with maths, there are 34^17 (assuming no letters I and O) possible combinations of numbers, which is about 100 million, million, million, million (1 followed by 26 zeroes)! That means every person on the planet could have 15,000 million million unique VIN numbers each So not much chance of getting a duplicate " https://www.rhocar.org/index.php?/forums/topic/49660-documentation-and-vin-plates/&do=findComment&comment=405489

  5. The DVLA website does cover this, you need to write a letter and ask them for a VIN. See this link: https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-approval/individual-vehicle-approval You write to: K and R DVLA Swansea SA99 1ZZ

  6. Chassis black Por 15 paint. With metal prep. I don't work for them, but if I did I'd be there best salesman. I did my wishbones and mirrors years ago. Toughest paint there is Andi

  7. There's a copy of the 2B panel identification sheet in this thread: It's not drawn to scale but it should give you a good idea. Carbon panels weren't supplied as standard so you'll need to look around for them. Kitspares don't list full carbon arches but they may be available from elsewhere. https://kitspares.co.uk/collections/bodywork/carbon-fibre+

  9. My attitude to this is to check continuity. With a volt meter measuring volts first check that both wires are at the same voltage. ( if volts are not the same then they are are obviously not connected) Then switching to a low resistance range check for continuity.

  10. Never thought of that Mine is all covered in masking tape so it's not obvious. Thanks Al

  11. The main thing switched off during starting was the radio/tape player. This was to stop the tapes tangling, remember C90s and a pencil to try to get them staright.

  17. I have a MT75 gearbox….. the zetec blacktop engine I purchased was out of a automatic Mondeo so no flywheel or clutch, thanks for the link I’ll have a good look at your blog, I’m only £360 into a budget of 2.5k, I feel I got a bargain with the engine and throttle bodies plus loads of bits

  28. Just wanted to thank every who chipped in sorting me out after my screen shattered on the run. And a special thanks to Kerry for coming up the patented RHOCAR 3/4 racing screen, it worked a treat and got me home safe. Looked at the dash cam footage but could see anything hit it. Shatter.mp4 Will be looking to get a laminated screen over the winter. I think I was lucky with no injury just found a small shard stuck in my chest this morning.
