Also the fun is for a short while because i am allready stopped by the police , got lucky because my old muffler was still on the backseat and with some lies i could get away without a ticket but the original muffler is beneat the car again.
This stainless steel one makes to much noise.
Today when i went to the halfords to get a antenna cable and suddenly when i was just about to drive away i almost hit with my head on the weel because it suddenly stopped again :pinch:
car jumped on emergency mode again and i grabbed my camera.
also had my odb2 reader in the car to read out the error
Also made some preparations for the camera's in the car.
placed some Cat 6 Ftp cables.
Planning to build a 4 channel D1 recorder into the car ;)
Why you ask ? no reason just for fun, it records were i drive , speed,location etc.
can come in handy when i have an accident or it also records front back left right when i am parked.
Motion detection , so if someone hits my car and decided to drive away i have some proof from it.
Don't know how they think of it by law we will see.
And if i do not use i maybe find another use for it :silly:
place for the recorder
wire for rearview camera or something else
Wrecked my dash for finding some cables that i needed for the GPS tracker/alarm system
relay connected to the interiior lights because the alarm system was confused otherwise with 3Volts on the lines.
Then he thought the doors were always open so made this between it.
Here a movie from the nice little function build in the gps tracker :woohoo:
The error because of the manifold were i took out the catalyst
Also a funny thing, i saw in a store a rearview camera for just, yes just, 99 €
I asked if i could see it and hold it for a moment, no problem.
I got the box and it seemed pretty familiar ,i ordered once some rearview cameras from ebay.
Exactly the same box and type of camera, only big difference is the price lol
Here it was 99 € and if you buy it from china ebay its 12 € how about getting screwed over shopping at stores
your fabrication skills are on point!
Wow. I enjoyed reading this thread, nice work!
Thanks, and i enjoy building it ;)
the "problem" is that i am still thinking every day hmmm, what can i make in my car ;)
some things are useless but fun to make in the car but the space is also a challenge with this small car.
I bought a few weeks ago some plastidip.
Just a small amount to test how it worked and felt and how it would spray with my spraygun.
Today i thought well nice day to try before i go to holiday :)
Normally you can spray a whole car inside and outside with 2.5 liters of paint ( base)
this was about 400 ml so i thought well lets see how far i come.
i had to thin it out as crazy before it was nice sprayable so that means it gets really transparant and that means many layers before it gets its good color.
I had to little paint but it still seems pretty good , nice thing is that i can pull it off without any trouble because its a rubber product.
Plastidip is pretty funny stff, here some pics
Also there was a little damage the previous owner had used ( dont know the translation, its to tip on some paint with the same car color to repair damaged pieces)
i used some sanding paper because there was some rust / oxidation beneat it, before it would damge more of the steel i made it clean and put some clearcoat on it.
When am tired of the plastidip i will pull it off the roof and respray silver on the roof.
it first looked a little ****ty when it was wet but when it dried it looks pretty good.
strange feeling , its ruff/rubbery like a grip from pliers and a motorcycle.
