Ah Ha !.......Got YOU...your secret is out.....I saw Phase 1 and thought Big Induction & Turbo, then I read on..........That plate is higher now , is it not ? and finally Straight......CheersGot the Spider reg'd today... literally passing my docs and money through the side window of the county clerk's office...
Made the effort to try and level out the plate... whoever drilled the first set of holes must've been a total muppet, the plate wasn't centered, or level. The plate surround is now level, per an actual spirit level, even if the plate itself is not level within the surround ... Yeah, the holes in the plate itself were visibly off by an 8th inch-ish. I tried to center it side-to-side, and it's a bit closer now than it was, but not perfect... but that's as many holes as I'm drilling, dammit.
Also got Phase 1 of moving the 124Spider emblem done... removal and reapplication the 3M... waiting for another part to arrive before Phase 2 can happen...
You're slipping man... yeah the plate is about 1/4' higher and 1/4' left of where it was... and yeah, finally level... but you missed one addition in that image... 😁Ah Ha !.......Got YOU...your secret is out.....I saw Phase 1 and thought Big Induction & Turbo, then I read on..........That plate is higher now , is it not ? and finally Straight......Cheers
Glad you got a bit of a jaunt in the saddle... tomorrow, they're closing my favorite road to all traffic, to quarantine it... I didn't know asphault could even get COVID-19...Well....Had a call from Doctors surgery yesterday, wanted me in last evening so I thought..."Not Isolated Anymore"! so I took the Spider out instead of the VW -Roc, coming back in the dark.... Now, no big deal you may say, but....since buying the Spider March last year and doing my "Brexit Mods" thread including updating the halogens it was the first time the Spider has seen darkness, and it was fine, plus....the route to and from my Doctors includes my "BIKE and Sports Car twisty, knee down bends so I even got to watch the potential road kill get to live another day as I avoided them, God, Pheasants are sooo stupid !
Today at 0715 hours my Good Mate Kevan the local Garage Foreman collected the Spider to take it in for it-s second service (keep warranty intact) so at least the Spider is getting some exercise, whereas we are only allowed out for exercise once a day and CANNOT take the car on any non essential journeys.
Stay Safe,One and All, Cheers
American cousins obviously, I like to say karl was the only Idiot.......Glad you got a bit of a jaunt in the saddle... tomorrow, they're closing my favorite road to all traffic, to quarantine it... I didn't know asphault could even get COVID-19...
I wonder what the relative intelligence level regarding traffic is, compared between the English Pheasant, and the North American Turkey... they love the roads, find them the most comfortable place to just set, and set... and set...
"I THINK" we are allowed to potter in the garden, unsure about washing the car though..my Spider is back from local garage late afternoon so as it lives in my garage and my wife suffers severe COPD I am going to antibac and wash the Spider before I tuck it away, definately, then clothes in washing and shower for me. The dogs are wondering why they are only going out early morning, hard on us all, eh !I really want to wash my car but I am currently not able to... Due to Covid-19, all car washes have been closed and it is illegal to wash a car at home in my area.
In much of Germany, washing your car at home is against local laws. They want folks using specific self-serv car washes, so the resulting waste water can be collected, filtered, treated and recycled back through the car wash, instead of going into the environment.Is that a COVID-19 related restriction or is it always illegal?
Then you really want this as well... perhaps a bit large to glue on your car, but I suspect you'd find it entertaining to work on while we're all doing the self isolation thing.<edited for brevity>
Being a life-long Star Wars geek, I've had a tradition since the first moment I had my driver's license. I like to reference the scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo and Princess Leia hide from the Empire by hitching a ride on the back of a Star Destroyer by hiding a small Millennium Falcon on the back of all my cars, trucks, motorcycles and even boats. I can't tell you how many times I've had people literally freak out when they see it, want to know where I got it or how I did it.
A really good idea...but the engine paint I have takes days to cure....so that was out, at least until winter.Looks good @Bob T
one suggestion and its a cheap modification too. Paint the turbo bracket (Metal triangular bracket on top of the blanket) It makes the engine bay look better. especially since its a lower grade of metal it tends to rust and discolor. A few of us have painted it black, some red. I used a brake caliper/drum rattle can paint. ( i had it left over from other projects) It has held up really well.
I tend to stay away from the Lego stuff... I prefer more detailed and accurate models from Japan...Then you really want this as well... perhaps a bit large to glue on your car, but I suspect you'd find it entertaining to work on while we're all doing the self isolation thing.
