Bill,

I'd say you've pretty much summed it up in a nutshell.


Charly.

Key,

I'm modifying my picture of you as a "mad scientist". Now I see you as kind of a cross between Wally Byam, Thomas Edison, and Hannibal Lecter.

Also, I'm not sure I can carry the "open window" metaphor far enough to cover your last installment of the f-stop/LED taillight thesis (although I'm thinking about it). For the moment, you're on your own with that one.

Condolences on the Range Rover, but you know you're flying in the face of inevitability with that battle.

Charly.

Steve,

Anytime you fell as though you have bitten off too much, just bop over to this thread...it curled my toes, and not in a good way. I might have tackled it at 50 (I had a 3 year old then), but at 65...I just want to relax more.

More Dr Frankenstein than Hannibal Lechter

Yup, I was following his progress... he is the guy who got me into the vented pads for buffing.
Scary project, but good!

Have been crazy busy with other time sensitive stuff, so not been able to get back at it this week.
This morning I walked over with the GF and dogs, and we spent time looking at, and deciding on issues of storage, TV placement, carpet, wood flooring, etc.
The TV plan looks good!
The Larger LCD on the bracket looks like it will really work well!
It was good and whilst she does not come over that much, she is very pleased with the progress and how I visualized everything, and is in agreement on 99% of what is planned.
We walked away very excited for 2012, and talked about it for maybe the whole 10 miles walk!

I just posted my "Mad Scientist" tail lamp project over in the Trailer section for fun.. lets see what they say!

I was sitting reading thru my ECT2000 manual and found out something REALLY AWESOME it can do!

Find battery drains!

By disconnecting the + side of a Battery and attaching the Transmitter, you inject the Tone signal into the wires... You can then trace where the tone is going... thru wires, fuses and find the circuit/item that is consuming power!

Sounds easy in theory!

I've had two Jags (XK-150 & XK-E) , a Land Rover 109 and numerous Rover Sedans: I feel your pain, though, I thought they went to Bosch electrics, or was that just masking the darkness?

Lucas Industries plc

and for those of us old enough to have enjoyed {??} British sports cars and motorcycles of the 50's, 60's, and 70's -

"
The Original Anti-Theft Device - Lucas Electrics."

"Back in the 70's, Lucas decided to diversify its product line and began manufacturing vacuum cleaners. It was the only product they offered which did not suck."

"A Land Rover doesnt leak oil, it marks itīs territory."

Q - Why do the British drink their beer warm?
A - They have Lucas refrigerators....


da dump! ymmv.

Oh, ok.. you wanna start?
LOL...

Anyone know what V8 engine the Range Rover, MG, and Triumph had in it for years?
Yep, a Buick V8...

Know who came up with the design and winning prototype for that American Icon... The Jeep?
Yep, the Austin Car Company...

I heard 70% of all Harley Davidsons manufactured are still on the road... The other 30%, the owners gave up and called AAA..

What Americans call Football is a game you play 99% of the time with carrying the ball with your hands... and if you kick it with your foot and score... you get less points..
Yet you insist on calling it a sport... where one of the more famous players was called the Refridgerator...
A game where the players have to wear padding, and have a rest every few minutes so that the commercials can play...

Now, I know a few American Football players who tried Rugby.. and gave up cos its too rough and atheletic...

Basketball?
Oh, please... thats a girls game where i grew up, called Netball.
And to make it difficult for the ladies, you cant move when you have the ball in your hands, and also we removed the backboard, so be accurate with your throws please ladies...

Baseball?
Oh, men mostly dont play that in England... its a Ladies game... and we call it Rounders... again, to make it tricky for them, we make the bat short and they are only allowed to hold it with one hand to hit the ball...


Now, who started this?

The British and Americans (including Canadians)...two peoples separated by one language, eh?

Healey 3000 very dependable...nothing a sharp rap to the fuel pump with a copper hammer couldn't cure. Heat in the summer, cold air in the winter, paper towels for a defroster, but the best damn crumpet catcher, short of an E Jag, ever made. "carburettor is a French word which means 'leave it alone"

Got my winter gas today while it's still cheap (relatively). Not sure about the Peoples Republic of California, but the premium gas we get here at Pure stations is still ethanol free. I always put it in everything for winter storage, even 2 strokes, just to be on the safe side. I was still 70 here yesterday, but freezing will be here soon.

Something Derek probably doesn't have to worry about in the Tampa area.

Sorry, www.pure-gas.org does list some stations in far Northern California (very near Oregon).

Hate putting it away for the winter.

Bill
