    I remember someone telling me that they accompanied Brian Milton across the Channel one time. The person I spoke to said he was in a Quantum and up at about 6,000 ft, and still pooing himself,...

    I've more or less finished the dashboard now, and here's a couple of pics of it.

    Aerial,

    Thanks for your post. Those Klixon CB's look the business! I might invest in one for the ignition switch, so that everything after it goes through the CB. That way, if anything does go, I...

    To be honest Gentreau, I didn't know that RS had a reputation to uphold. It just never occurred to me that they were anything other than a shop that sold all sorts of electronic stuff.

    Roger,

    Please excuse my ignorance, but I fail to see the difference between your 3 amp CB's and the ones I found rated at 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 amps. They all seem pretty much alike to me. I can...

    Roger,

    I presume the round bits numbered "3" are where the circuit breakers are?

    On Ebay I found an advert for something very similar, but with a transparent cover over, for 2.78 each...

    Dave,

    I dunno. Can you get 12 volt circuit breakers? I'll look it up on Google and Ebay and see what I can find.

    tomshep,

    Antoni,

    As I am rubbish at electronics, your opinions are probably much more informative than most of the 'facts' I've read about LiPo batteries and their chargers.

    nigel,

    It'll probably be whatever a 3/8" bolt is. On the LAS website 3/8" bolts are designated as AN6.

    Here's a link to the relevant page on the LAS website for AN UNF bolts with drilled...

    Asgard,

    The LiPo battery I've got is a Haijiu HJTX4L-FP-1, which I believe is a sort of 4 amp hour battery. It may not be strong enough to start the engine on its own, but I've got two of them, so...

    Oh, and I forgot to ask in my previous post; do I need a voltage stabiliser for the lithium ion battery I'm fitting, or can it be charged from a normal reg/rec?
