Re: winter storage warmth

What? It would probably cost less to store it in a proper facility then to run an electric heater day and night.
Plus heat inside cold outside will create major condensation issues.
Don't do it.

Re: Jumpy Tacho

I think you may need to check all of the other wiring.
Clean earth as you've already done.
Ingnition live straight from the fusebox. Piggy back off another ignition live.
Clean wire straight from the coil.

Hey Dave. You've gone into hiding mate.
I've been over here for 6 years now. Plenty of shows. Haven't seen your bus at all I'm afraid.

Re: Jumpy Tacho

You need a diode in line with the coil feed. Cost a few pence from your local electronics store or you can buy them off ebay.

Re: Bare rear seat bench frame from 67 combi

Doesn't look like a VW seat Tom. Was it clamped in position when you got it?

Re: French toll roads Sanef auto pay thingy

Plus the A roads are usually a shorter distance although slower. Use less fuel. Drive at a sensible speed. See more of the country side.

Re: Paint scanning technology

Any good paint technician should be able to start with a colour and mix it to better match an existing colour purely by eye. Trial and error. No need for fancy scanners.

Re: Brazilian lmports

I'm going to upset a few people here but would you drive an Aston Martin made in India? Or perhaps a Ferrari built in Nigeria?
Last count 9 of the 25 Splits on ebay were Brazilian imports.
