I remember trying the aluminum idea as a lark. I had some sheet on hand and I used a 2x4 as a shape to bend it over. I had to do some more complicated bending for the cutaway part to accommodate...

If you have a plastic supply store in your area, you’ll have a lot more choices with regard to thickness, and the prices will be better. A sign supply shop will also carry the stuff

The shortened winder and the notch on the forward edge of the upper trim piece are all to clear the cage. But it's true; they also cut weight. :)

Yes. That's how I've done it. It should be about a second or two before you can disconnect the booster and leave the trickle charger to do its work.

Those are the same as what I have.

Out of the car, see if you can get it from green/flashing-yellow to green/yellow by briefly boosting it. I think it only charges if it sees 90% of the 14v in...

Yes. I've brought mine back more times than I can count. If it goes below a certain voltage, the float charger will just flash yellow (with a steady green). What I do is get out my boost charger...

Solid advice. I've got a magnesium-case '77 915 that's been mated to a 3.6 for 17 years now. I go to the track at least 10x per year. (Yikes!)

You'll only see elevated temps from track driving....

I like the idea of the Saturn cover.

Nowadays, GPS/cell-tower based locators are pretty cheap. My car sends me an email whenever it leaves a pre-defined circle around my garage.

Idle question on transaxle maintenance: How full is full?

In 19 years, I've done a bunch of fluid changes on my 915. I always add to the point where fluid starts coming out of the fill hole. But I recently made a pump-reservoir-thing to fill it, and it...
