Re: Best electronic ignition

How does EDIS/Megajolt compare to Lumention and 123 (except for the part that EDIT/Megajolt is more DIY kind of setup) ?

Underfelt fitment

Hi, I have a series 1,5 and I am in the process of fitting new underfelt. But I am not sure if the parts are correct: The bits covering the gearbox tunnel are not symmetrically at right side and left side. Is this correct? And why? The tunnel seems pretty symmetrically to me: http://i1166.photobucke...

Interesting project!
Why are you not keeping the EDIS and just replace the Jolt with Squirt?

A little update from Norway; The project is going further. Bumpers and lights are almost finished. Just before the winter came I took the car to the norwegian PKK (as the MOT in GB) to see if the technical was ok. I got some faults, but none seriously. So now I have a short list of things I have to ...

I guess the best solution will be to replace the floors :( To replace the floors, what needs to be removed? Exhaust? And the IRS? In order to avoid distortions in the body, it is best to replace the front and rear part of the floor separately to avoid large open areas that weaken the strength of the...

Replacing or repairing the floors

Hi, I bought a nearly fully restored 1968 OTS where PO said the rust was removed. It was only a partial truth. When I removed the paint and seam sealer I discovered a floor repair I need to do again. Left side looks okay, but the right side is not so good. Heavy use of pop rivets and little welding....

Thanks for all the great feedback. Have not decided 100% what solution I go for yet, but at least now I have a lot of info that makes it easier (or harder?) to make the right decision.

I was thinking of putting on some bitumen 3mm self-adhesive mats for soundproofing. Is this wise or should I use anything else instead or in addition? In hotte...

Thank you Christopher. I was trying to find if the "periodic roadworthiness test" was enough to check if the brakes was in good condition, but in 50 kph they would accept a stop length of 16,6m so if my E should be able to stop in 10m I cannot trust this test for verifying the condition of my brakes...

Deceleration numbers

Hi,
Does anybody know how a s1,5 OTS should decelerate with original wheels and brakes in good condition? How many meter per second per second or braking length from 80km/h?
