Hellertown Pa, British Car Show Sunday.

Great day under the trees at the Reservoir. Penelope got out for the day with my Jensen Healey. My son drove the JH over and we swapped on the way home. Good Day Great weather with like minds. Carbuff was there also and placed in his class. But I am sad to report he has gone to the dark side and brought his wife's Jag F type. Congrats on the place Atwell.

In other British car worlds, my TVR 290S S3c should be home tomorrow if all goes as was planned. I am trying to suppress my excitement.

F1 judges have epic fail

I am not a huge fan of the top two F 1 teams. But this past race shows how epic a fail the judges produced on Vettels off track mishap. The video clearly shows he did the best he could considering the speed they were at. The race was truly won by Seb, Congratulations on a well earned win. The judges need an eye exam and a little looking into their actions. Congrats to team Renault on the effort to move Riccardo and Hulkenberg up the positions finish. Great job!!

Other news

In other news the TVR 290S S3c is now home with her sisters and enjoying New Jersey life.
She is better then I could have ever hoped for. A very well sorted car. I enjoyed my first drive with English plates on the car.
Thank you Richard Parramint for your extra effort to get her across the pond.

G car relays

I want to upgrade the relays into a well sorted mounting system. I am very tired of the hap hazard way they are in the car now.
Has anybody upgraded their relay mounting. If so pics and what was used please. I keep having fan issues and want to settle this area once and for all. I am a bit tired of cleaning them .

Love the integration of the proper driving lights on the TVR. Not many cars make such provision these days. One of the reasons an '02 Subaru WRX is still my DD after all these years. (yes that's the snowrx)
And no one makes anything like it anymore to buy new....

Soooooooooo, Back story, This girl in the video is Simone Giertz,, she is a quirky YouTuber that loves just building stuff, crazy stuff of all kinds. She is also a kewl chick that has an inoperable brain tumor. She had an operation that was an attempt to safe her life,, now her worse fear is back. The tumor is growing and she is living life at it fullest while she has time. Thus her one eye is lowered from the tumor as you will see in the video. That chick is my hero of all things tough and I love her style,, Piss off cancer I want a Tesla truck too. Jenna

Take this as encouragement to be creative. I realize you are dealing with the front relays. This is just a general format to an idea that should be yours. Mine is an '88, so I know, completely different. I was looking at upgrading to an SE spec engine and knew there would have to be many changes to the relay box behind the engine in the floor panel. I saw a pic somewhere of an Esprit that was being raced and they relocated everything in the relay box to above the battery. Looked like a great idea! Polycarbonate sheet, A.K.A. as Lexan, Makrolon, etc, is really versatile stuff. You can fold it like sheet metal, drill it, paint it... Just use a piece of cardboard as a template and some scissors or a knife and start figuring out a shelf, panel, what ever. If it's a small piece of Lexan you can bend it in a vice. But you will have to "sandwich" it with a couple pieces of plywood or something so you don't mark it up. If you have access to a sheet metal brake, set it a bit "loose" so you don't bend it in too sharp of a corner. It won't break, but it may have small fracture lines along the fold. Here are some pics of what mine looks like;

The leg stands on the ledge of the body behind the battery to support the back. There are two pins that are drilled for a single wire that supports the front. I was pleased with the way it came out. I can take out the trunk floor without messing with wiring and it's open enough to get the battery in and out easily.

So let the creativeness begin Jenna!

Very nicely done, and a green that is is beyond good

I will have to come back to this idea when it's time to rewire my Megasquirt harness!
