Japshow 2014 - Saturday Event Planning - Have Your Say

Post by d-peg » 04/07/14 22:11

Unbelievable ...

... Unfc ukingbelievable...

4 times I've done Japshow now..

4 times and only made it once in an MR2. (Kermit made it once also for the OC mashup)

It would appear this year will not break with tradition, I have been let down by master Sonic. :sad:

The hook on the battery came off the clamp, the clamp swung round and had arced out on the positive terminal. Thought I'd got away with it but came home to hear a rattling from the engine - only to find bits of the alternator back casing hanging off. Something has gone bang big time. Put the volt meter on and watched it steadily drop 13.32. ... .31 ... .30


Bummer...


Left it idling for a bit then 3000 revs for a minute or two.

12.84 .... .83 .... .82

You muthers!

Rach suggested we just go in F'anni . But I've said I'll bring the BBQ so.. once again I'll be turning up in the fat slag - unless anybody has any bright ideas..? :crybaby:

Dan, thankfully (although it is no consolation) they aren't charging any more for non jap cars to get in this year - one price fits all :th:

Anyway, got the car all loaded up now, just having a coffee with Erin and I'll be going over. I'm a bit late this year but never mind ;)

Good news is that it rained overnight but has pretty much stopped here now...It's supposed to be quite good by this afternoon :th:

Oh, and if you remember rightly, in all the years I have been going, last year was the first one I actually made in the right car - I have taken a Mondeo estate, a Saab 900, a Subaru Legacy.....
