It ain't a carpet, but nylon flocking over the bare steel. Looks good with the colour of my car and it won't curl up  anymore, so the isolation-tape at the bottom of the rear windws can be removed. Smiley

Smart idea.

How are your plans on moving to Norway coming along?

We are going to Norway end of September.... For a holiday only unfortunately......

As far as cars concerned we have everything settled. The Murena can be imported for a small amount (even with the V6) and our Avantime which has now just 5000 km on the clock is a 10 year old car concerned to toll so it is importable. (still cost a shitload of money, but so does a second-hand car in Norway)

Our last problem is selling our house. We give it some time, but we have a price we need to move to Norway that gets a little lower every month. As soon as anyone want to buy our house for this or lower we'll be gone! Can't wait to leave extually..

Hilsen,

Martijn

Actually I was partying with a dutch guy this weekend, intern at my friends work, driving a Land Rover. He loves being in Norway, as he can use the 4wd now and then.

For various reasons this project has been slumbering the past year.
But recently work resumed and the first results are here. The engine is running Smiley
Not in the car but in a test setup. It took some time to setup but in the long run it will probably save a lot of time getting in and out of the trunk of the car.
There are quite a few things to sort out but I'm pretty happy with this result so far.

Oil spill because someone forgot to tighten the oilcooler lines.

Mine's driving now! Finally.....



I am still testing it and are being very careful to see that everything is working fine. So I haven't fully tested the engine yet, but I can tell you that it is fast! It drives smooth as only a v6 will do and the power comes in at very low revs already...

Cheers,
