Hello everyone,
    Greetings from Florida. It looks rough but a lot of the parts are body parts no near perfect.

Out for a washing, and serious reorganizing.
Post above should have said, parts now near perfect.

  Remembering why it's so much fun working with fiberglass in 100+ degree heat.
Later😀

You can't fool me! You're kidding us about all the fun of working on fiberglass in the heat! ;)


I believe that's what air conditioning is for!


Speaking of A/C, are you planning on having it in the Europa?

I wish I had it! When I built my car I hadn't heard of electric compressors (if they existed) and there was no convenient place to drive one. Then, I'm not sure where I'd put the condenser and evaporator.

Does anyone know the voltage used in electric refrigerant compressors?  In checking with the Chevy Volt, it looks like some 200 volts!

The Tecumseh masterflux Sierra was popular a few years ago for diy electric vehicles. It can work off 12Volts.

I hope that helps.

There is a company in the UK that developed an electric air conditioning kit for classic 911s, but they do sell the parts seperatly.

BIG FAN ,

Love your videos,

   My ac system will probably be a container fill with ice and a fan blowing air into passenger compartment.

Lol


Drove my pickup without air for several years , two windows open at 70 mph will keep you comfortable. I also worked on aircraft no air on hot concrete for years so ac while driving this Europa will be added in.
Your friend,

£1800 for the compressor and controller alone.  That's not cheap.

   Yes I understand, Florida is heat and humidity. I have fans in shop.
I work according to the weather ,painting is iffy and at best requires
Test pieces, weather reports for dry air and a lot of experience and luck. October thru march are perfect.
   I like that post went a little off topic but down the road it will be addressed. I met an 82 year
owner of a Europa from Vegas that said driving his car is limited because of the heat.

Fiberglass work coming along on the last of problem areas wheel wells and a complete firewall..
Slow day on Europa but I helped complete a 6'x2' oval Tiki head.
Ok don't laugh but a friend of ours has a son who can twirl fire like you would believe.
So my daughter carved it an sent from t back to them to coat an then have it painted by her . We may also add some dry ice tubing . Well I'll try to post some pic but that was my week .
