  2. It's been almost six years to the day that I took possession of 165H. Unfortunately during the last few years the car has sat and really not done much at all. I believe that these cars should be driven, seen and shared. As always life gets in the way. So with a heavy heart I made the decision to pass custodianship of 165H on to someone with more time and resources than I have. 165H is being delivered next week to it's new owner and I know he will be active on this site, so the car's story will continue for all to follow. So from me, it's a huge thank you to all for sharing in the highs and

  5. I think that advertising is very very well made, honest, direct and not full of splatter. I think life is very beautiful, and that is what the add portrays; and I also think there's nothing beautiful in being smashed in an accident. I too am amazed of how many are not wearing a seatbelt, front or rear, and not wearing a helmet on two Wheels. I was witness to an accident, where an elderly couple drove their car directly into a man on his bicycle. They got a dent in the door, and he died with his skull split in two, while I was trying to hold them together to prevent everything inside his

  6. I've witnessed a serious head-on collision @ 50mph and the consequences of the front seat passenger not wearing a seat belt. It was a pretty awful sight as he ended up on the bonnet and suffered serious trauma to his face and head, with large chunks of windscreen embedded in his scalp and face. I was off the bike and first on scene. Several people simply couldn't help as there was so much blood and they had to turn away but as mentioned adrenaline kicked in and I provided towels and shirts to stem the bleeding and my sleeping bag (we had been touring France and were on our way back through Oxf

  8. What Derek says sounds perfectly logical to me Jimi, I'd start with the easy stuff. But if I have any other views on the subject when I get the new module, I'll post them up. Might be worth having a look inside the pod lift module to see if there's any obvious signs of overheating on the circuit board.

  9. If one headlamp pod stays up then I would suspect excessive resistance to movement in the affected headlamp pod which causes an increase in the current drawn by the motor resulting in the pod lift module cutting power. The cause could be stiff hinges, misalignment of mechanism due to wear/damage or the motor itself could be worn internally. The other cause can be the pod lift module failing.

  11. I think something along these lines would have much higher impact (substitute the boat with a car - and change the music ). http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=590038514450911

  13. The EBPV/Throttle jack circuit has a dedicated 10A fuse and relay already. The wiring diagram above is only if you intend to keep using the EBPV. Otherwise, the wiring to the EBPV solenoid connector is rated for 14A, and the fuse is 10A, and the relay is 40A, so you can use those for most water pumps... My pump pulls 8A, no problem with it.

  15. But surely the best solution would be the ability to raise and lower? That way you can drive it at "normal" ride height, get reasonable handling and even tyre wear, then drop it when you want looks? I think you should ditch the footpump Charlie and fit an electric pump then you can raise and lower "on the fly"...

  16. Tim, here is the link showing chassis loop mods necessary to fit UN1 w/inboard Wilwood brakes http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001391065878&ref=tn_tnmn#!/media/set/?set=a.178528142158430.44883.178516808826230&type=1

  17. UN-1 w/ INBOARD BRAKES conversion If you want to upgrade the gearbox using bolt on parts w/o fabrication search for a Renault UN1- 027. They're getting pricey these days but it's an easy conversion with no welding. Here's a conversion done by JAN HOEL. All of the nickel plated linkage parts and exhaust mounts he got from Mike Rodrigues. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=179165288761382&set=pu.178516808826230&type=1&theater
