What Could You Share?

121 posts in this topic

OK, So I believe we had a thread of this nature somewhere in the forums but I cant find it! So I shall start a new one!

This is an area where, if you are happy to lend anything from a photograph, to a piece of hardware then let the forum know here!

I will kick off!

I have a few things that I would be happy to share.

1) Haynes Manual for a Focus CMAX

2) Bluetooth OBDII connection for mobile troubleshooting, error codes, and even as far as 0-60 and BHP Readings!

3) Modified ELM 327 cable - Would be happy to help any local bodies with switching some things on. Would post for someone to borrow (with a returnable deposit) for just beer money.

4) F Super Cable - For PC oriented diagnostics, Error codes from various modules and some other diagnostic software. Again, would be happy to loan for a returnable deposit and a few quid beer money :)

Otherwise, I have done a few small mod's so am happy to help with a bit of wiring and advice, and would be happy to help with any repairs that are not miles out of my comfort zone!

So over to you folks - what would you be willing to do to help others on the boards?

I will continue to pore over Microcat as long as this version remains active and happy to make piggyback cables for anyone wishing to fit additional 12v sockets for a nominal charge.

Advice on keys and suchlike always offered.

I'm new to the world of fixing my own car, and even own a car, and as silly as it sounds, if any body needs a helping hand down here in Somerset, I'm happy to lend a hand what ever the job is.

I have been thinking about a 'for hire' section on the forum for a while now and if it would work. Maybe even a section for those looking for help/equipment in their local area?

I reckon there are a few guys on here with car specific tools they would hire out for a small fee - those tools are just gathering tools in the box otherwise.

I know I could help anyone out locally within Fife, and would travel outside Fife where possible.

I have quite a number of tools I could hire out, such as hydraulic spring compressors, gen2 wheel bearing tools, hydraulic press etc.

I wish I could have a 2 post lift mate lol.

Yeah the bmw is still happening.. Just waiting on the guy phoning me when he gets the engine. Should be sometime soon.

I have been speaking with the wife about a few funny picture/video opportunities I will have - I'm saying no more about that until I post them up lol.
