Dismal weather down my way (Frankston), it's been raining on and off all morning and now thunderstorms. Think the Zed will have to stay in the shed. Disappointed!   >:(  :-[  :

With a chance of hail, don't want to risk taking the Z out ☹ This weather sucks!

Turned out to be a great day - only some minor showers interrupted the early afternoon.

Been looking forward to the meet for a few months now! I'll be there with my "rust bucket"
Andrew

The "Rust Bucket" ain't that bad, just needs a few parts and some assembly - well that is how a salesman would pitch it.

Thanks Gordo for putting on a great day again.....shame about the weather as I didn't want to give the new baby a bath just yet.

 

Great to catch up with old acquaintances and new.

Big thank you to Gordo & Sharon for their hospitality itwas a great day.

A few of you were asking about the kit I used to get original A/C working in the bus.
Below is the link to supplier in the USA I got it from.
If everything else in your car is OK all you should need is this kit and a new receiver dryer to be in business.

Hi

Probably worth having a chat to your local A/C guy first, just in case he knows a better (cheaper) way

Very reasonable! How much does the unit weigh? Also anyone have any idea how much power it would drain when not in use?
