As a 'poor man's solution' you can also try this: - pull back the door panel until you can access the connection of the two rods - extend the rods by using the alternative holes (M6 screw) Now your door lever has 3 positions instead of 2: - 45° angle: door closed normal - pull lever: door opens - pu...

But I think it all works: - seatheating - cameras for reverse - 2 CB's - tire pressure control - temp in/out - alarm - warning for open doors - Garmin & Terratrip - compass - 2 full level controls - consumption meter - oil temp - wiper inter...

You're kiddin? It is difficult to find such speakers? Why don't you just go to Amazon and order them: http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-TSX150-60 ... =pd_cp_e_1

I fixed the Pioneer 2 way speakers in a very simple way: A piece of flat iron is bent 90* and screwed to an existing mounting hole in the rear of the roll hoop (arrow). The bend avoids that it turns despite there's only a single screw. The speakers have some thread inserts and are mounted to these i...

Hi Eric, this is not as hard and robust as fornica, it's more a thin adhesive film on both sides. We have a supplier nearby who manufactures the boards for RV and Caravan companies. They sell surplus for bargain prices. The benefitof this material is that you get all the bandings, hinges, push-locks...

Camping Interior

After some positive reactions to my camping interior in another thread I though it might be a good idea to introduce the concept in a new, separate thread. The idea was to build a car that can be used for occasional multi-day trips with basic comfort. So here are some details: - Power is supplied by...

Thanks a lot :D The interior also looks a bit more cosy now with carpet, cushions and curtains: http://up.picr.de/2625035.jpg IMO the 4x4 Pinz has just the right size to spend a few days travelling. With 60 litres of water, fridge, 2x1.2m bed, 2-flame stove, toilet... you have all you need for the w...

Thanks for the flowers ... live's too short for boring cars :lol: In between my Pinz looks a bit different, it's painted flat black and features a roof rack. http://up.picr.de/2622649.jpg The structure of my roof allows to bolt on some rails which I use to hold the aluminium roofrack. It's made out ...

Hi Pinzinator,

you say '... no spring compressor required, just lower the axle and remove the lower support pins..'

If you remove the limiting strap can you lower the axle far enough to release the pressure from the spring? Don't you damage the inner seal with such an extreme angle?

I purchased one on ebay which is out of an old VW.

It's glued with some 3M tape to the glass and I do not want to miss it.

Hi Bob, I think you better search with the smaller manufactures, the 'main stream guys' don't care for niches. Over here in Germany this was quite easy if you look in the oldtimer/vintage car or agricultural supply websites. Isn't Miller an american manufacturer? http://www.millersoils.net/M3_cgi/mi...

I changed all the oils some days ago, but I did not use GL4 in the 2 gearboxes. There were lengthy discussions in the german Pinz forum on the pros/cons of the different qualities and there are concerns of using modern GL4 or GL5 oils. The GL4/GL5 oils are great in the diffs and the wheel hubs, but ...
