  1. Well, as for fiberglass and a Boxster, I don't know. But a full size cardboard one, based on the desk top cardboard model, I think is a wonderful project. Especially for children The project reminds me of those card board submarines one used to purchase, that were advertised in comic books. Good luck with your project.
  2. I can agree about about a 10 year life if care is taken. FWIW, in my history I have had issue with tire shops not wanting to mount tires over 5 years old.
  3. As if any close friends of Eddie read Lambo power, I send my condolences. Eddie changed guitar playing, with so many guitar players emulating his style and inspiring many learning to play guitar. His production of Van Halen album titled 1984 is awesome, done on an 8 track I believe. I also think he was a Lambo owner. RIP
  4. Purest will hate it.... Mechanics will love it. As I recall there was a video with a Murcie where access holes where drilled on the USA passenger side of the console to access a transmission component. Late model Pontiac Firebird owners opened holes in the trunk to access to fuel pump assembly to avoid exhaust and fuel tank removal. Late 1960 Ford Mustangs with 428 engines; some mechanics drilled/ opened holes in the front wheel well to access the spark plugs. Could one say even Ferrari created an access panel to the front of the engine when it updated to the 360 from the 3
  5. Nice post, easy to read and easily understandable. Thank you. Also nice to see you are DIY repairing. Awesome. Best of luck.
  6. Not sure how I would vote: I love those AMG station wagons. Sedan height, storage (sleeping) ability, conservative, very fast. Only "con" I know of besides depreciation or costs is fuel miles per gallon (when compared to other wagons). This is a Lambo site. The Urus is "hot" desirable right now. Many say the Urus drives as a sports car, yet better than the above AMG? (I don't know). Mileage, costs, depreciation I would expect an apple to apple comparison with the AMG. Maybe the decision may be made on ground clearance? Perhaps made on the ease of egress/ ingress? Persona
  7. I love it. I'd say that is Lamborghini design! Good direction and I can't wait to see a two seat street version.
  8. Looks like a very "clean" installation and a nice conversion product. Congrats.
  9. I enjoyed your real time video. Why the bleed screw access is not so easy...Italian tradition I suppose. Would you consider an access panel on the outside of the center console's leather? Lastly, the Neutral Switch DTC code...was its failure coincidence or related to the bleed procedure?
  10. Going back to one of the OP original questions...the clutch job. TO bearing, resurface (or replace) flywheel, PP, disc...at authorized dealer is $21K? 34 hours book or maintenance guide time? Is that the price and correct understanding?
  11. I'll offer a consumer opinion based on my understanding. The lift system is activated/ increased by the amount of oil in the shock. That oil is now be held in place by a check valve. The shock in lift mode has no fluid movement....could say it is just a closed cylinder filled with oil. IMO any suspension travel/ movement will bring excess pressure of the oil against the shock body seals. Yes, best, ask local dealer for advice. Conservatively I would flat bed. And good luck!
  12. In for answers. Seemed like an easy question. V12noise's comment above has a strong point....left & right mislabeled on the diagram? Italian service manuals....photos/diagrams better than words?
  13. Stimpy, in hindsight, do you think heating the hose in a mircowave oven, to make the hose softer/ more flexible. would be worthwhile?
  14. +1 for Mega Chad. Great content, great DIY.
  15. FWIW. I wouldn't stress and have a Happy Birthday make up day. Damaged no. Used up a few miles of clutch life yes. How many miles did you lose I can not say. If NO drivability issues, again, flywheel, throw out bearing, transmission shafts, I doubt were damaged. If you wish you could have a shop measure the remaining clutch thickness, I would not and save $$. Maybe, just maybe, you glazed the flywheel, but again if their are no drivability issues, I'd say all is okay. Re do that Birthday, have a great Birthday.
