    Where we are going, there might not be roads... '99 Fiat Panda 4x4

    As public said it is about 800kg. On the type approval shield the maximum weight is 1220kg, while the maximum combination weight is 2120, which leaves 900kg for the trailer. But also, I don't have an E-licence, so I'm limited to 750kg trailers myself.

    Where we are going, there might not be roads... '99 Fiat Panda 4x4

    Nearly went through the whole 2019 without updating the thread! And after the recent Airing of Grievances elsewhere on the forum, this feels like a particularly good moment to add some "normal" content. So here's a quick recap of the last year... With Beni's help, the "proper" inclinometer was...

    Welcome to XenForo

    Fantastic! Needs small tweaks, but already feels like home :mrgreen:

    LED signal conversion

    The light itself will work just fine, as DaBoom said it's advertised to work with raw 12V, so it has current limiting built in. What could be a problem is indicators flashing too fast, depending on how the circuit is done on your bike. If it's a problem, the equivalent resistance to a 10W...

    Cancer Sucks

    If you read this, Alex, I wish you find enough composure to enjoy whatever time you have left. And thanks for very literally changing my life in many ways. Any of us can go at any time, but we have the privilege of not having to think about it constantly. I literally can't wrap my head around...

    Ukraine and Romania Roadtrip 2019. Start saving up for new shocks.

    It'll be fiiiiine :mrgreen: But honestly yeah, some parts are very sketchy, and schedule is designed around that. I'm also reading travel reports from local forums to get up to date information on road conditions. And then there's streetview through the most of the route. We'll survive.

    Someone Else's Problem: Lunacy and Eternal Optimism part II - 2001 Disco 2 V8

    Does the bumper still look good after half a year? Also, is that a 15ml or 30ml bottle? I bought some with intention of bringing Panda's faded plastic back to life... but there's an awful lot of plastic on the Panda, and C4 is stupidly expensive :)

    Ownership Verified: Four more litres of displacement ('92 LS400)

    Oh wow, didn't realize I haven't posted here anything last year. Short recap: During last year's wintermeet the left rear quarter was reshaped a bit against a snow bank, which was straightened and painted during the summer. Careful inspection also revealed that there are several panels that...

    Feedback on a donation program/status?

    Awesome! Is the 25 image limit just some default or is there a good reason to have it at that? I ran into the limit already when editing the first post if the PYC 7 thread 😅

    Ownership Verified: We can rebuild it... we have the technology (7 - take two)

    I went through the thread and fixed all the images in my posts. They are still hosted on armedcats, and aren't clickable, I just fixed the embedded links. I use this thread a lot as a personal reference regarding the stuff I've done to the car, as it seems I was pretty diligent at documenting...

    Forum Suggestions / Issues

    I don't know if that's reasonable (or even possible), but if you run a replace every, a whole lot of old threads will have working embedded images again. I've started doing it for my 7 thread, but after 9 pages I'm exhausted, it's very hard...

    Welcome to XenForo

    Ditto. I'm not a fan of dark themes personally, so getting a bit of classic colors back would be nice.
