Re: What DONT you like about your Lancer?

Yes I know it can be tuned, one day... I've got a 2008 Lancer VR. I think the pickup of this car is so laggy very slowish. However sometimes its better at times. So i really dunno if its an issue with my car. Overall i still feel they could have made these Lancers a bit faster But yes I agree, my 4B...

Re: How do I measure PVC pipe?

Ended up retuning the 40mm and got some 32mm, with a couple of layers of duct tape it would be a good fit with the vac hose. I got a couple of bend pieces and already have some 32mm pipe so will them to join the bits through the bucket lid, which I might reinforce with a layer of plyboard. I need it...

Re: How do I measure PVC pipe?

I think you'll find PVC pipe is an internal measurement as the walls are thicker than exhaust pipe steel. Its also used as a way to measure water flow.

How do I measure PVC pipe?

So got some PVC fittings in Bunnings today to build a 'cyclone' dust bucket for my table saw, measured the vac pipe and got 40mm, checked on the shelf and the docket says 40mm but when I got home I thought they were a bit big so measured them and its about 48mm internal diameter. https://www.bunning...

Re: Nice Review of the 2015 CF

I was talking top up with some cars now getting 400-500km range, drive till its 50%, stop for a break and cheat it up to say 80% will get you to the next stop with range to burn. The idea being you top it up at every stop but it 10 min or a couple of hours. And yes those times are getting better all...

Re: Nice Review of the 2015 CF

There was news story over the weekend about a 1000km range battery, so it will happen. And if you want to keep your CJ there are companies taking Tesla parts and modernising old petrol cars to all electric. Charging with a fast charger shouldn't be an issue, start on a full over night charge when on...

Re: Nice Review of the 2015 CF

Mine has 150k on it and no plays to replace it soon. Going down the coast the other day I was getting less than 8Lt/100km, which is not bad for the 4B12 and it doesn't sound of feel rough. Yes road noise can be a little loud at time but not annoyingly for the age of the design and yes there are solu...

Re: Footwell Lights?

Yeah the pathetic single globe idea is like 50 years old, I do wonder if the boot light is better is new cars or ones from the likes of BMW?

Re: Footwell Lights?

Forgot to say that I already added LEDs to the cabin light years ago and an LED strip in the boot.

Re: Footwell Lights?

Thing is most of the time I leave the lights off, unless needed I don't even have the cabin light set to auto as 95% of my driving is in daylight hours. I just want to do them so when needed you have more light in the footwell for easier access at night.

Re: Footwell Lights?

Only thing is to work out where to place them, opinions?

I'll work on this over the next few weeks getting the bits needed and checking out behind the glove box.

Thanks

Re: Footwell Lights?

Thanks, so basically that's the plug for the cabin light, connect the LED strips up to the right wires and they should come on with the roof light, cool. Like I said looking on eBay and Google I couldn't find the genuine footwell lights but from memory they are in the $100s to get. Use the right wir...

I did a search and the only thread I found was closed. I'll look for the PDF.
