Any news on the dimensions?

Are these blue or grey in colour please Peter?

Any plans for a transponder?

Just thinking that they might be nice for my F27

Hiya Chris,

We moved out to Cyprus last year, but we're coming back to the UK next week.
Not sure where we will settle because I'm looking for a change of career. You never know, might end up near enough to you to Issue ya at the weekends !

The type I have used to good effect is the Olympus one listed above. These are now obsolete and hence very cheap on ebay etc, but if you want the new type (a lot more expensive) this will give you an idea http://www.precision-camera.com/category/wide_angle_converters I don't know which ones work and...

Another possible solution to the projector throw problem

If you are struggling with getting a big screen size with a short throw, I'm experimenting with a solution. I managed to get a wide conversion lens for a video camera. When you put this in front of the lens of your PJ it makes the screen size bigger by a considerable amount. Right now, I have a 0.6x...

I've found that height is very important if you are gonna use a projector. You need the PJ so far back that you need a lot of height over and above your "cockpit" It's probably been one of the biggest headaches for me even with a lowly Queenair sim. Right now I'm in a 16ft x 8ft x 8ft trailer that I...

I use a VGA splitter/booster. With cables about 15 feet and 10 feet long I couldn't do without it. Got it on Ebay, about £30 I think but it was quite a long time ago.

Part of the problem is that new developments are made and you want to incorporate them. Or you think of a better way to do something. Or worse still you spend what you can afford making a bit of a compromise on what you want then some company goes and releases a product for the same cost that you ha...

Hi Claes, I know that you didn't ask me but since I have been working on Land Rovers for 21 years I thought that I might reply. You didn't say what engine you have fitted. Also since you have a station wagon, I am surprised to hear that it has no sound proofing, it doesn't sound like a county model ...

Anyone in the UK found an alternative? I am looking at something called foamalux, since I can't find anyone who has heard of Sintra over here.

Thanks again Peter. I might take that route, but as you know the light caps I am after hold the edge lit plates in place and since I have all the holders there in my panel and a 24 volt supply already illuminating the overhead with the correct caps,I would like to stay original.
