Thread: Peter's Eagle SS

  1. #371
    My Belgium friend Luc has done a fantastic job in making a pair of billet alloy indicator/wiper stalks to fit onto the old Triumph switches.
    Just need to get the cowl sorted after removing the light and ingnition switches, leaving two big holes.

    I am having to make a complete set of switches from scratch as the BMW Mini ones turned out to be crap plastic PCB unit requiring a module interface. so back to the drawing board with 3 Mom off Mom and three on off on switches on a metal support plate under the plastic fascia, I will put a strip of LEDs underneath with cut outs in the wrap cover for the symbols.
    Something like this;

    Also it was great to meet Jason when he came down to La Calle resort, Calle de Mijas to do a DJ gig. blew his wad on leather bracelets in the local market and did me the honour of visiting the 'shed' and checking out Ukhozi. Had a great day, thanks mate, must do it again.

    Having drawn a blank on the Mini switch front I thought I would make my own bank of six switches and seven loops BUT at over 6 bucks a shot they would cost more than the switches so friend Luc and I had a chat and I am going to make my own, a meter of 6mm alloy tubing and a meter or 4mm threaded rod cost me 5 euros, I need to make a tool but that's half an hours works to knock up a couple of pulleys and a lever, then just bend the tube with the rod inside and bingo, threaded ends on a loop.

    So, what really happened was that Peter hacked Jasons account, and included photos of Jason Photoshopped into photos of his Eagle. We know how Peter is always photoshopping mods to his car, do we really think it stops there? lol

    Based on what Jason has said about the local beeches. I think we should all have an annual run to meet up at Pete's place & see how Pete's Eagle is coming on.....

    Not as daft as it sounds, one of the clubs, I think it is RHOC, does a trip to the sun.

    So often I say this that or the other seller on Ebay has performed less than satisfactory or the product is crap etc BUT a shining light on the car accessory front.
    I needed some toggle switch 'loop' guards and was finding prices a bit high at $7 a unit and shipping doubling the cost too which bought it into the duty and tax bracket but this guy Eric M. Jones (southbridge_massachusetts)is brilliant!

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/180639618032...S:1123&vxp=mtr

    Not only did he sell me 7 for the price of 3 pairs but shipping was only $3 with tracking.
    Parts are NASA and NASCAR standard too.

    I did try to make my own by bending some 6mm alloy tubing with 4mm threaded rod inside, it worked fine but was far from consistent and satisfactory, Luc (diy) had a go and I think was more successful but he does have ALL the gear, but all in all with the work, time and materials it was a good choice to go ready made and wait a week or so.

    Talking of Luc in Belgium, I received the stalk ends from him yesterday and they are brill' beautifully turned and polished with small black buttons in the ends for horn and washer, no symbols as I know my indicators from my wipers. He also made a perspex square with an Eagle and my name which will be mounted and bottom lit and a key ring disc to match, great CNC skills if you ever want that special or elusive part making ask Luc, I'm sure you will find his work top notch and very reasonable. Email address is luc.maes@gmail.com

    The only burning question now is, chrome trim around fascia as before or as it is now black CF not alloy bling trim, without?

    Plan 'ucking 'B', again. The idea of one continuous acrylic fascia panel was totally busted yesterday when it shattered whilst forming with a heat gun, way too fragile, I need a more flexible material in smoked 3mm but I think I will go back to a steel backing with a CF wrap and a separate speedo glass, something I was trying to avoid, but, hey ho, on we go. I will mount the 6 toggle switches on a plate so the switch nuts are hidden and hold the lot together with the guard loop bolts.

    Stalks looking good though.

    Just need to get to grips with that cowl now.
