    A New Year - a new website?

    Well not quite!

    Hill Engineering (your friendly F-chat sponsor!) has a new domain name

    www.customferrariparts.com

    The old www.hill-engineering.co.uk will still continue to work, but it was never easy to remember :)

    I have changed the look of it very slightly - (yes - I know I need to keep my day job!)

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks all and Happy New Year to all

    Paul

    The new site looks good! Now I'll put in a product request. How about a 348 extinguisher mount? Please?

    Happy New Year - John

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    John - Need to do a bit of investigation on the mount. Out of interest is there a standard diameter for a fire extinguisher? (I should be so lucky!)

    Gabriel - Interesting one! - Thinking cap time!

    Paul I had done some work with a company in Chislehurst Kent a few years back. Spent maybe 15 weeks there getting the project done. Companies name is Sira Ltd. Is this close to you? Just tring to get a reference as to your location.

    Steve,

    Yes - only a few miles away from us! They are quite well known within the Engineering fraternity in our area :)

    Nice work Paul - I like the new layout (parts are more easily found) and the new site name is better also. :)

    I'm a bit late replying, and not much help either! I don't know if there is a standard diameter for the fire extinguishers. People mention both 1.25lb and 2.5lb units, but I am not sure what the difference in dimensions is. Wayne at Pelican Parts posted this link in another thread...


    http://www.drivewerks.com/catalog/shopcart/MISC/POR_MISC_safet2-detail.htm

    Both units say they have a width of 3.5", with the lengths being 10" or 14 3/8". Upright mounting is what manufacturers recommend, but it looks like most people mount them horizontally out of necessity. The only place I can think of to mount one vertically in a 348 would be between the seats on the rear cabin wall, but that would interfere with targa storage and possibly convertibles (not sure). I have seen mounts on the passenger seat floor, using the rails as mounting points. I saw a 348 here in town yesterday that had them mounted horizontally on the rear parcel shelf, but I think you would have to drill through or cut the carpet, depending on how they were mounted. I am not sure if there are existing bolts on the ledge you could use.

    I am just rambling, throwing out some ideas.
