Hi Paul,

I've done a bit of digging and this can be done but its going to be some work to get it how I know you will want it!

We are using Amphenol Terrapin connectors (info on the web) in similar applications (push/pull connect/disconnect) but they are mounted in bespoke machined housings

Honestly speaking I think you might be better doing a remote horn or backtracking a bit and getting a pre-wired wheel mount which I have seen.

I could probably get sample Amphenol Terrapin connectors if you wanted to try to make an installation.

Happy to help if I can

All the best


how about using a 3.5mm headphone jack and socket - both rigidly mounted on a machined boss?

would work a treat...

Hi Guys,

Thanks for picking up the baton and running with this, really appreciated.

The jack plug was my original thought but probably will be the last tango since I discovered the joys of Amphenol Terrapin connectors courtesy of Steve (Bacchus).

And here it is, something like this which we could machine in to the original parts or a new boss.



Something like this with a simple push fitting and small enough to fit should do the job. What do you think Steve? It seems a bit cheeky of me take up your offer of a sample when I'll only need 1 but if it were possible I'd be extremely grateful worship

All the best,
Paul santa

Hi Paul,

Hope you had a great Christmas. When I get back to work next week I'll see what I can do regarding the sample, need to call in a favour from my Amphenol suppliers.

I'll be back

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve,

That would be absolutely brilliant, I can't thank you enough. If possible a smallish size around 7/8mm dia. would be great.

All the best,
Paul

Hi Paul,

Samples due with me this week. Can you please check your inbox for a PM on this subject? I've just sent it but it did not appear in my outbox so can't be sure it actually was sent.

Cheers
Steve

Hi Chaps,

I've just noticed that recently the thread has ticked over 250k views worship

All I can say is a huge thanks to all who have viewed and especially to all of you who have contributed with posts.

When I started Plan B I just thought I'd share a few photos of the build, get advice and possibly make a few like minded friends on the way. And I have made some great friends thumbsup

Cheers
Paul

Hi Ian,

Yes, I'm really looking forward to some days out soon. Always enjoy them with you guys. I haven't even looked at me car for a month. Must get it out from under the sheets this weekend and warm the engine up.

Hi Keith,

That looks like a really good day out, hillclimbs are a bit of fun and great surroundings at Harewood. I'm looking forward to it.

Hi Mojito,

That's great & much appreciated thumbsup Thank you for contributing.

See y'all soon,
Paul

Paul, there's an absolutely stunning 924 turbo for sale on 924 owners club, if I had sold the 928 I'd be all over it!


Keith, saw your car at the metro today in the rain!! It was parked miles away from everyone, I was going to leave my transit parked right next to it for a laugh but I had to get home Thumb it looked great by the way

Hi Paul, well done for producing a great car and a great thread. A credit to your attention to detail on both.

The 924 turbo Ian has mentioned looks like a bargain car, I looked at the Gmund car on wednesday which has a ticket price £8k higher. Worth a phone call I think.

Statistically, 250k views could easily be the NE lads reading each episode of your thread a few times! It compares favourably with the dross on TV most nights!

Hope to catch up soon, cheers, Keith.

Hi Chaps,

Sorry I've not been around of late, I've been doing quite a bit of work at home. However, I did take take the old girl out for a twilight twirl yesterday and here are the photos to prove she's not buried under the patio Grin














I'm due to take her to Redtek for a service but she's done less than 3k miles since last year so I'll give it a few more weeks.

Hopefully I'll see one or two of you around during the summer.

Cheers,
Paul

Looking 'Lush' Paul.
Glad to see your pictures haven't gone missing Smile

I've been trying to get some reply out of Nick (Redtek) for '4' months!!!!!! Like Photobucket, i've given up the ghost......
(Loads of calls, never returned. 8 e-mails, never answered. I even discussed the engine build with him at Oulton Park in March and still not a sausage). He must not need the business I guess Question

Anyway, lovely to see Black Betty 1 out and about Thumb

Hello again,

At this point I should have apologised to anyone who's reading the earlier pages and noticed something missing, Photobucket now wears a bandit's mask and I'm in the same boat as The Red Baron!

I will try to reclaim my photos and drip them back in at some stage.

Lo siento,
Paul

Hi Chief,

You must have posted that about the same time as I added another one about Photo-bl**dy-kick-the-bl**dy-bucket Grin

How are you keeping?

That doesn't sound like Nick at all, would you like me to call him for you? Not that I have special influence but it might help?

Cheers,
Paul
