Currently playing around with the speedo (see here http://www.project-l.com/images/bast...cho/thumb.html).

PS: Still a lot missing in the story - should be enough for now though!

It suits the car really well. So the airbag still functions oka s well?

HMT 14-01-2010 06:41 PM

Well, i didnt test it, if that's what you mean...however it's wired to the airbag ECU and there's no error code.

70NYD 14-01-2010 07:01 PM

HMT 15-01-2010 12:21 AM

Almost right - that was at the german side of the alps near lake constance, a region called "Allgäu" - black forest is a bit to the northwest from there (and one of the most lovely regions on the world imo - highly recommended :)).

More pictures from that day:

Just out of curiosity what does the symbol on the back window mean?

I agree.....its one of the most beautiful places I've been to and the best scenic drive I've ever done. Thoroughly enjoyed the drive.....nice windy road with pictures scenery (all roads I driven in Europe are far ...far ...better than Australian roads!!!) . I was there last summer in the black forest region when I went from France to Switzerland crossing borders during my annual European tour. Those pine trees are very unique for that region....I even visited the cuckoo clock factory and bought one! remember those cows with big bells!! :)

HMT 17-01-2010 11:59 PM

Yeah, it's great fun there on a nice spring or summer day - just awesome!

Well, i used to be a fan of Gigi d'Agostino and he uses that symbol as a logo - chinese for dance...
Removed it though, dont like that kind of thing any more :)

HMT 21-03-2010 11:33 PM

HMT 22-03-2010 03:46 PM

Thanks mate! The seats are genuine Mazda leather seats ;)
