Re: Brake Upgrades

So I couldn't get the fog light air feed printed, our work machine wasn't big enough for the base plate and we didn't have time to print the scoop, so I tie wrapped the pipe in and duck taped it, but duck tape don't hold at 110+. Anyway I've tested the Mercedes upgrade on the track, I need to strip ...

Re: Restoration parts

If you depanel the front valence it is much easier to repair and reshape. I combined the best bits of 2 cars, just make sure you trial fit the wings before welding the valence back together.

Re: Brake Upgrades

So I have been working with Olof Eriksson who is redoing the A170/190 adaptor in Solidworks. So for the adaptor we have the following quotes from 3Dhubs CNC 1=£142 4=£310 10=£500 Material doesn't make a huge difference and I'd prefer mild Steel Other costs Disk machining = £25 (2 disks) Mercedes use...

Re: 360 Front stabiliser bar

I have a few of these used after swapping to the uprated Mk2 fit, could probably dig one out.

They are handed, which side do you need?

Re: Fan issue.

I think if you don't know how to do that you should take it to a mechanic. Changing parts randomly is never a good idea. The sensor is just a switch, by shorting it temporarily you can determine if the switch is the problem or not. Just stick a screwdriver across the terminals or stick a bit of wire...

Re: Volvo 360 GLT from Portugal

If that is a high compression one (10:1) they really kick ass in the low end, but you might need octane booster.

Engine pics please!

Re: Brake Upgrades

Well adaptor prototype in PLA fitted after a little extra material removal and retapping my incorrectly designed threads. Everything fits nice in 15" wheels but not 14". A set of 4 pots fix caliper would be better. Also a little worried about thin section of the merc disk where the bolts go through....

Re: 360 turbo saloon tidy up

Yeah the radiator shroud is just to make the fan more efficient at idle/low speed IMO, maybe protect the disti from water. It blocks it at high speed where I am having the temperature rise (max throttle track etc). I am feeling confident the rad mods (removing 1-2cm of blocking material top and bott...
