Anyway i have a few questions?!
Oh and i'm uber excited, hopefully i'll get to hear the V8 after a year of sitting!!!!
No not one of marty's I got a 2n'd hand one, tested with a 30 money back guarantee.
He also has 100% positive feedback. so i'm not too worried.
When i pressed the tailgate button the fuse went pop!
and it kept going pop until i disconnected all the wires in the tailgate.
rear wiper, rear release button and associated wires.
Which was odd as she worked perfectly the day before!!!
Oh so it's most likely the latch motor that has failed in the tailgate causing the fuse to blow?
Would the Drivers latch and tailgate be connected in some way?
For both of them to fail at the same time?
You can swap the key blades across fobs to keep your original transmitter.
The ole' beast will be used as a toy when i eventually get around to rebuilding her..
At this moment in time she has an AC Stag premium LPG system on her.
Is it worth keeping?
Of course it'll need a recon as will the car but will LPG be necessary on a vehicle that'll only do 1-2 k per year?
By the looks it is staying lol
My nearest LPG station is 4mi away!
So pretty lucky on the part, assuming they don't get rid of it!!
whats the biggest tank you can fit in the wheel well of the P38?
Any updates on these beauties ;)
Wouldn't mind a few interior pics ;)
Same the blue VSE might be broken up!
The Alveston red VSE is a lovely looking car.
Does it have the red carpets?
Oh that rowan cherry wood is beautiful, as is the red carpet!
That has to be the cleanest P38 interior i've ever seen!
Would love to get mine upto that standard one day!
Love the Alveston red paintwork!!
Shame you didn't keep the Blue one for spares, but hey ho i'm sure you'll get around it!
Can't wait to see more progress!
I'm sure it would work with some modifications!!
damn these new electrical pixie cars!!
I'm sure we could make a P38 run on anything!! lol
I seem to read a lot of the influx of these new fangled vehicles that are powered by magical electrical pixies that come 'oot of a plug 'innit! ;)
Now, my Old P38 will take, by my financial estimate and general dafuq calendar, roughly 8yrs to get to pucker condition.
I want to do some travelling with her once i'm done, will all these new emissions laws cause any issues regarding this, what will happen to these fangled stations that produce that magical go Juice, petrol?
She'll be on LPG and petrol obvs ;)
I've always thought about hitching up a nice tin tent and travelling across Europe. France - Germany - Poland - etc. and of course everywhere as is possible in the Uk.
Now I know ya'll can't predict the future, but is it feasible that these old petrol/LPG machines will still be going in the future?!
And a nice post on how electrickery is crap would be nice.
I pick up the spanner and screwdriver and head towards my 38a and can't help but think, whats the point if i'll never drive it..
Here's a nice P38
It's mine BTW ;)
Any words of wisdom for an profoundly odd 18yr old..
E10 is a new "petrol" they'll be bringing out in 2020..
Apparently it's bio-ethanol fuel..
so long as its flammable lol
Lovely pair you have there ;)
Find out what number your P38 is from the Vin??
There were 167000 P38 made, roughly, is it possible to find out what number out of those 167k mine is?
Any help truly appreciated,
First of all!
1) why is it necessary for the vehicle to be up to temp before it'll switch?
2) Is there an infrastructure building for the fuel?
3) oh and Range!
What is the best range you've all been able to achieve on LPG?
Is there an increase of interest in LPG as a fuel do you think?
I've bought a new/used latch for the drivers door..
The circumstances to how the previous one failed has me worried..
It appeared to die right after i pressed the tailgate button, Fuse 15 went POP and it hasn't worked since.
I've had to disconnect everything in the tailgate to stop the fuse blowing..
I'm thinking as to connect the new latch, will fuse 15 blowing damage the latch?
Also is it possible for a faulty latch to cause the fuse to blow?
Ah yes thanks..
Is this what i'd be looking for?
The switch itself has a spike of 16.0 OHMS and it gradually drops down to 0.19.
MAke any sense..
Not really a leecy wizard lol
