    Hi Robert

    Saw you at Bicester but as you were heavy in with your loving followers I could do no more than nod.....

    Car looks fantastic, didn't see V she was probably sensibly getting hot drinks, great show, very eclectic but cold.. ah well this is England

    Regards

    Hi Paul , oh that's a shame i would have preferred you came and nudged me ! it was a bit of a chatfest.... i had several people at once asking me questions, i felt like an umpire , all very friendly though.i must put a data sheet on the car.

    at least you can look at the car , and say to yourself , hey,loads of that was made in my huge mega vice of wonderfullness !

    ola compadres ..


    Well not a lot happened this week , APART FROM I GOT MY V5C !!! with the new number on ....


    Now...going insane trying to find the font i want in a plate that doesn't cost 9 million gatrillion pounds ..cannot even find stick on letters ! blimmen charles wright !!

    meanwhile i have a scrappy cav mk1 ign module for the front engine so i can have matching coils ,as the twins in the gynacologist requested , also still researching my inj malfunction.

    no driving going on since its be noah'sville here , i did spend a happy few hours angle grinding the rust off my guards , , during which i found a crack in th top mounting bar on the hub , so whipped that off and braced it with a 6mm s/s bar of goodness ...that won't crack again !

    i wondered why i could smell rubber on the way home .




    tinkety tonk.

    regards
    robert

    guten aben ,


    My Mission for this week ,which i chose to accept , was to fit my SLC free wide band exhaust gas fuel mixture dubries .

    They look like this ..






    which just won't do , it's about as gentlemans roadster as a shell suit and a burberry scarf dontchaknow ... might as well get huge fake bum implants while i am at it !! #innap.



    so my evil plan is to take the 0 to 5v read out , run it through my friends box of tricks , which will give me a 1 to 2v output ,then ,if the air fuel ratio is 10:1 to 20:1 , then a voltmeter will read the air fuel ration directly ,just with the decimal point in the wrong place ..triffic.


    i soldered the SLC's as shown in the instructions ..




    thats all those little soldered points in the front , and the 4 and 6 pin end plugs , then i painted the case satin black , since i will have to have them visible to see the o2 senor temperatures , i will pop them in the side of the scuttle .



    next was to mount the mounts for the digital readouts , which you have seen a page or two back , these i simply drilled through the scuttle and used s/s button allens... m5 i think todays particular vintage was .



    NOW , since i had burnt out my digital temperature sensors with a jump start , i did a bit of research , and found they are not at all happy over 15v .so i wandered through ebay , and found a little stamp sized adjustable voltage regulator , bought it , and hooked it up to try it out ...

    first i connected it to 12v bench supply , and popped a 12v led on it .











    then adjusted the weeny little pot on the regulator to give 9volts ish ..








    marrrvelous , hopefully that may protect the 4 digital readouts about to be unleashed on the car .



    so i popped in my new temperature dig RR's and lo and bloody behold , one of them read 95c ! pox.

    spent another happy half hour working out the sensor had gone spasmo ,so cut, soldered, and heat shrunk the bejaysus out of it and we were beck to functionnositynesstasticnoodle.




    Went ahead and constructed my customary cats cradle of wires behind the demi dash ...







    having already mated the voltmeters with their respective hosts .

    next was to turn it all on ..













    HG WELLS !! pfffft ..take a back seat buddy



    ok ok maybbe not , but hey , i like em .


    next is to fit the boxes , wire it all up , and then i get constant real time air fuel ratio feedback ,with no big innovate boxes clumping up the seat , neaty neat neat .




    regards
    robert

    That look terrific. I wouldn't believe that digital readouts would look good alongside a traditional brass dash but by eck they do
