Re: Winter projects

I have a MSD Atomic sitting on my desk :). It's basically the same system with less fancy features...
I know several people running that system with success. To run it right, do some research in the forums, e.g a absolute leak free exhaust system is a must.

Re: Tripo headlights

I had them on my car as well, the pattern is not that great. If you drive only a few at night, it‘s okish.
I changed to cheaper but much better Hellas with H4 bulps.

Re: Fire extinguishers

Honestly, all of those tiny Mickey Mouse extinguisher are not worth it, especially for our "plastic" cars. If you re looking for real safety, invest in a fire suppressing system!

Re: Registering a uk car in France

What ive seen the last years is, that the registration date have to make sense in relation to the company providing/ building the kit car; the registration date based on the donor car is quite unique to UK and often THE hurdle in other countries.

Worked out perfect with highly visible orange turning light for more or less no costs :) Would add a picture if i could... To be honest, that sound...
