    Paprika Leather

    Have you tried Fulcheners to see if they will do supply only. This one also lists Paprika. https://www.martrim.co.uk/car-trimming-supplies/red-leather.php
  6. I have heard that the main alternator feed to the car can work loose, too. It has been recommended to me to solder the feed from the alternator (via access panel behind rear seats). Maybe this is working loose, in which case this is a lucky early warning signal (rather than complete car shut-down)?
  7. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can source Paprika leather to retrim part of my Evora? The car is in Malaysia, but I have relatives in the UK who could buy there and ship to me. Or any suppliers who will ship worldwide. I have been stumped so far so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Calais to spa

    E40 being the most direct , and in theory the quickest, route but as been mentioned around Brussels does get busy! Even worse in the centre! Are you in a rush? Personally I think the A16/A25 to Lille and A27 / E42 would be my choice as a little less congested and avoids Brussels but slightly longer.
  9. Done some wiring work on the car. This sendor unit was connected to coolant temperature wire. I've changed it over to be correct and follow the wiring diagram. I've got everything else connected but can't find a wire for this. Can anyone tell me exactly what it is and what wiring I need to it / wire colour etc? I have the wiring diagram but just can't make sense of it at the minute. Help appreciated.
  10. Hi guys.. Sorry it is me again As i start putting the pieces together in my car i am starting to need more information Does anyone knows how the crankcase breather valve works in the NA together with the cold enrichment valve? From the service notes, 1 outlet is connected to the crank, the other to a hose leading to the airbox. The small outlet is connected to one port of the cold thermal valve, which I assume is port 2. The cold thermal valve is attached to the coolant rail. The other port, which i presume is port D, is connected to the carb, and also to the ATC sensor in the airbox, which I do not have. So, I am a little confused. How does all the components work together, and what is the effect if i closed the hose to the ATC sensor as i do not have an ATC sensor? Please help to explain... Thanks

    Good grief! Did it actually have any fuel in it? What a fire hazard!

    Only time I’ve been that way has resulted in tailbacks. Just my experience. Trevor.

    Just taking out the RH tank from an '85 TE. I think this one qualifies for my black museum.

    What made you UNHAPPY today!

    Very sad. Lost our boy Sherman in April. I know how you feel mate, but you gave him a great life and he made sure you knew it. He'll be up there telling his new mates about the great time he had.

    Euro question - 23rd June

    Can't blame Mrs may entirely as anybody is going to struggle to get anything through parliament. Although the country split was roughly 52-48 in favour of Brexit the parliamentary split was probably 60-40 the other way and they are likely to oppose anything but a very soft Brexit.

    Instrument Failure

    One of the guys over here had a similar issue. Dealer thought they had it narrowed down to a loose wire in an instrument connector. They fixed that wire but it wasn't fully resolved. They then found the alternator would sporadically drop voltage and then voltage to the whole vehicle would drop. The vehicle continued to run fine during this. If this is the cause, it also appears that the low voltage event may be stored in the ECM or ICM. Although low voltage may not show itself by a CEL or a wrench symbol, it is possible that it may be read by a dealer. (I don't think regular code readers pick up on it since there is no visible fault). The dealer replaced the suspect alternator and the instrument issue was resolved. Of course, this is just something to remember if it turns out that you do not have a connector or bad wire issue....
  24. I believe you can also order on here through @Bibs
