  2. Enjoy it we are on our way to full blown winter!
  3. My DIY security ....about 30 years ago before technology lol I had a problem with ppl stealing our snomobiles I took a motion sensor light and mounted it under the eave of the shed (wired it with an extension cord) directly above where the sleds were stored I pointed the sensor down at the sleds and in the socket instead of a bulb I put in a screw in adapter that turned it into 2 prong outlet now in to this outlet I plugged in a an old battery charger and ran the charge leads to 2 nice loud Chrysler car horns all mounted up under the eave of the shed it worked very well we would park the sleds go in and plug the cord to the motion light. And yes it worked great the sensor area was directly down over the sleds so it never went off unless someone was poking around out there and they were! All we ever saw were the tracks they left now days instead I would use a laptop adapter instead of a battery charger and for the horns some of them self contained air horns would be cool to scare the crap out of them.
  4. Well on Monday Nov 2/2020 we drove 900km to Lloydminister Alberta then Nov 3/2020 we drove 300km more through Edmonton to a rural area with the smart car in tow and dropped it off for a winter holiday at Stickman007’s place to work his magic on it. Unfortunately we only got to visit and meet for about an hour in person with the Covid and all and we did a fast turnaround and travelled back to Lloydminister then rested a day then back to Manitoba We are getting the works done on it by the master mechanic! Looking forward to next spring! Thank you stickman007 for taking this on.
  5. Best day today!! received my EGR Emulator from stickman007 in the post ! . Just wanted to share I just got this car a week ago it was in limpmode took a chance and traded for it ......what a great deal! scouring the net for info I found Stickman007 and got all the information I needed to get the little beastie going at zillablast break neck speed! well ok a little exaggerated but it felt like it. Looking forward to a possible remap! thanks everyone for the help here and thanks Stickman007 for his great magical device!
  6. I have HEARD that using the wrong type can bang the kilometers up on speedo 10,000km each time its plugged in I was wondering about that too.
  7. do you have a Picture of the sponge install please? I need to do this
  8. oh i have not found the vent tube? anyone have a pic?
  9. Nigel thanks! .....ahhh ok eliminate the connector wire it direct!. I saw that connector and my battery was loose in the well sliding forward and I put a chunk of rubber under the battery and tightened it down I was worried about that connector getting damaged I like the bypass option...sorry for the dumb question only had the car 10 days so far I'm learning lots here!
  10. just curious I have a 450 how do you bypass it? just unplug? Thank you
  11. lilturbo, here is a wheelbase cross reference tool there are some out there close you might find something suitable anyway for entertainment purposes here is a link
  12. Welcome ! please post pics when you get it done! maybe think about putting the smart body on a 4x4 chasis from something else? I'm sure it will be cool whatever you do to it smarts are cool!
  13. please put a link to the post i would like to see it so I know Thank you
  14. Thank you Willys I will keep that in mind I just did not want you to go to the trouble to dig them out and then I not decide to take them is all My nephew actually printed some this afternoon so will take that option first but thank you... I will post a pic... he's in BC and will send them in the mail to me.
  15. is there by chance anyone by chance 3D printing these? I really need some and would be happy to buy if I could find them
  16. I will call Winnipeg next week for giggles and see what they say I will post back here when I get the information Thank you
  17. Don't spend time searching I think I have a lead on some thank you
  18. That is good to know Thank you I don't mind shopping around and that is the great thing about capitalism it gives us options and researching them is not always a bad thing
  19. lol that's not happening for $40 but thank you
  20. here is the thingverse pattern for some you would have to check compatibility
  21. Yeah maybe but I'm in Buttstick manitoba 250km from the dealer so just thought I'd throw that out there to see if anyone was producing them there is a "Things" pattern available if somone wanted to print their own and I'd rather pay a homegrown business during pandemic than a prosperous corporate entity at this time.
  22. Thankyou Willy's I will heed and add your comment points to my list! the little car I got is in pretty good cond and I want to do my best to keep it that way and to do what preventitive actions are required you have given me great pointers thank you
  23. Hi from Manitoba I'm just new here and new to Smart Cars I got a 2006 fortwo smart car! YaaaaYYYY!! I traded it straight across for my old 1990 Daihatsu Hijet with a bad head gasket (The guy wanted it no matter what) so the good thing is the little smart runs like a sewing machine except the EGR is throwing it into "limp mode" either way I'm willing to learn what it takes to unleash the ponies in this cutie! . Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge! My name is Traci btw. and thanks to Stickman007 for the heads up on this great forum! Sorry I've already posted in the wron area!
  24. Thank you ! Wow just down the road I'm in Souris "Canada'a Longest swinging bridge" on the prairies lol
  25. Hello I'm in search of the foam floor panel that covers the battery compartment for my 2006 Fortwo it was not in the car when when I got it and dealer must have lost it anyway if you have one I would be interested Thank you Traci .
