  2. Re: The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars in 2030.

    All good points Norm, part of the problem is simply an extension of the trend for ever bigger cars anyway. There’s no problem making compact relatively light BEV but people seem to insist on driving...
  3. Re: The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars in 2030.

    The trope of ‘there isn’t enough generating capacity’ just won’t die will it. It isn’t a problem, according to the people responsible for it. The current(!) problem is charging infrastructure, or...

    Neil Simons used one of these on his turbo-nutter car: https://www.chargecooler.co.uk/. Worked really well IIRC

    They do look for the engine number, but if itís difficult to see they accept a photo. Once you are confident itís correct, why not just refresh it with some number/letter stamps? Avoid the angst of a...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    It’s reasonably visible once fully plumbed Leigh, although you might need a camera! As long as the numbers match(!) donor V5 is fine. That’s what I’ll be using for mine.

    166 gearknob

    Bit of a long shot, but with all the interest in fitting period accurate gear knobs, I wonder if anyone has a decent OEM Alfa 166 gear knob going spare? I have one already, but it's pretty tired and...

    Re: Spare Key

    ...and the final product. Not exactly elegant, but it'll work for an emergency spare key. I suppose I could print a car-shaped body for it? :)

    Quick update on this. After a couple of minor glitches, sorted with help from Graham, we have success. The first issue was with me using the wrong format for extracting the data, easy fix, the second...

    Fantastic, thank you for all that - makes perfect sense.. I've just ordered the same programmer, once it makes it's way from China I'll get busy.

    I'll bother you again once I have that data dump...

    Re: Spare Key

    Mmmm, interesting. The donor for my project came with 2 keys, but one was the valet key, so pretty useless as it stands. If I could make it a working key that would be great.

    Nowt wrong with a few wires, fuses, relays and switches Phil. PDU’s probably make sense for a high-end motorsport application where the significant cost is less of a factor...and in mass production...

    Re: Yet another non Stratos related project !!

    Looking good Phil. Re the wiring, everyone seems to be fitting fancy PDU’s these days. Does away with all the fuses and relays...and no doubt a chunk of the bank balance too.
