RE: Knowlege base

Great idea. I'm sure I speak for those of us with some grease under our nails; we would be happy to contribute.

RE: Knowlege base

As a newbie I would concur, what I try to do is "surf" through other forums to see if the issue has been delt with. I've only been here for a month but I would say that there is nothing better because of you guysyou have my full attention.

RE: Knowlege base

I'm doing my motor mounts soon, my girlfriend has a digital camera to document it as well. So count me in, sounds like a great idea.

Knowlege base


We each have our own skills and experiences tricks and tweaks of this Unique piece of mechanical and electrical Machinery, and most of the time in conversations I find I know more about the car than the service personel at my local stealers.
It is possibly true, with your own cars as well as others cars..we need to be able to help ourselves..Rather than rely on those whos only interest is £or$ pre hour or unit....

RE: Knowlege base

I'm in the process of creating a web page that describes some of the projects I've undertaken. Unfortunately, I did not take pics for most of my projects as I did not have a digital camera at the time. Maybe I can just do a narrative in those cases. I'm now writing up my Throttle Actuator rewire saga. I'll let you know what the address of the web page will be once I set it up. Once we figure out how to set up our knowledge base, I'd be happy to contribute what I have to it as well.
