    If I can feed a couple of long slings under each axle and join them in the middle then that should give me better balance, then. Don't need to take seats out then either!

    Thanks for the heads up...

    There's a thought - I used to vent it outside. I'll make up another pipe or find the old one to see if that makes a difference, although it's still behind me and would have thought the wind would...

    Body balance point

    I need to remove my GD body (which can be done in about an hour, albeit with a petrol powered angle grinder :D). I've found a list of bits that need to be undone to separate the two but seeing as I...

    Stinky petrol smell

    The smell of petrol as I drive along seems to be getting worse. I can't see any leaks and the pipes connecting the pump/filter to the tank are either solid or Teflon. There is still a braided hose in...

    My local auction often has complete tool collections going for very little money. Always useful having a selection of crappy old spanners you can grind/bend to shape for the really awkward bolts.

    My heater goes to the footwell but I never managed to feed it into the demister.
  13. Those footwells don't get any wider, do they?

    I built my GD when I was 27. I'm now 42 and haven't shrunk.
    Being an old fart and enjoying some creature comforts, I thought I'd fit a stereo into the Cobra (it's really very quiet with the...

    Saw those, thought they were pretty expensive although the switching function is interesting. Undoubtedly more waterproof than mine but a bit larger. Never claimed it was an original concept!

    Thank you!

    Printer is a Wanhao i3 Duplicator Plus and I generally use OpenSCAD to design parts now - a bit more difficult to use than AutoCAD but once you have a model done, tweaking a dimension...
