Re: My Storage tips

My 480 stands for months at a time usually, so no different for it during these times, I just disconnect the battery, that is all. Never have any issues. Always runs and starts like it was run the day before :D

Re: out of hibernation for a while.

It's crazy, but since having my whole underside cleaned up and treated with POR15 - probably the best thing you can use - I have been more precious about taking my 480 out in winter! But honestly, after a jet wash to the under side all the crap just washes away and it looks beautiful again. I would ...

Re: out of hibernation for a while.

It's a long story Jeff, I won't go into it!! :lol:

As for the heated seats, I have actually never tried them and a fear trying them to be disappointed when they don't work! Maybe I will try them,I don't much care for heated seats so I won't really care if they don't come on :hopping:

out of hibernation for a while.

My 480 is making an unusual venture out in winter this week while my C30 is having her headlights split and painted. Dropped off the C30's headlights to first drop off in a relay up the country to get them to Newcastle. Ice everywhere, closed roads and now a stone chip in my windscreen :cry: but it ...

Re: 2005 Lincolnshire Meet Photos.

Ha, yeh I was on my own in the 480 :lol:

Far too much enthusiasm on the treasure hunt (I wasn't driving), lost control round a bend and landed on a wall. Was no fun, trailered home and later stripped her down. I still have spares and parts on my 480 - she donated to many 480's.

Re: 2005 Lincolnshire Meet Photos.

I'm sure I went to a meet at this venue but I think it was slightly later, when my 480 (light met blue turbo) met it's end on top of a wall during the treasure hunt :cry: I remember sleeping in your red turbo JohnTurbo??

Was great to see you all and meet new faces, just a shame the weather was so poor. was great to take my 480 out for a good run, its surprisingly clean thanks to the good waxing it had earlier on! Was amazing to see so many 480 warriors - the great survivors - all ...
