At the end of march i bought a L701 from my uncle which he bought from one of his customers.
I’ve driven it every day until 2 weeks ago when i bought a Clio with AC (please don’t judge me. I only bought the S***box because it was cheap and had working AC).
Tried to sell the Cuore for a fair price so i could save up for one with AC, because that seemed to be the best way.
But they’re just nowhere to find (especially with a automatic).
So yesterday i decided to keep her and just put AC in her myself.
The reason i’m calling her ‘‘The Little Giant Killer’’ is because of how quick and feisty she is.
When pulling away from a traffic light i’m the first one gone. And the best part is the annoyed face of people with bigger and ‘‘better’’ cars. You should see the look on peoples faces when i pass them.
After doing a ton of research if found that the AC system from a M100 is almost a perfect fit.
The evaporator and condensor seem to be slightly different, but i might be able to make it work.
The evaporator from a L900 is just too different, but i might look at other parts from it if needed.
The evaporator is supposedly 10mm thicker but otherwise the same.
As for the condensor i’ll try to make it fit otherwise i’ll buy a new one that’s made for the L701.
As for the rest of the plans…
~Do a couple of performance mods so i can leave the traffic lights even quicker.
~I’m going to fit a boot release mechanism.
~Replace the engine (cause i think there’s some rodnock starting) + with my driving style i have to add engine oil every couple of days and sometimes even everyday if i drive a huge amount of km’s. Might be the reason for the possible rodnock.
~Maybe a roll on paintjob to mask the little dents and scratches. Even though i really like this blue colour.
~Fix up some little things; like put in a new spare wheel cover/panel as it’s missing, fix the rust on the gasfiller neck, add the right side roof strip (missing too).
~And possibly/most likely some more.
I’ll be going to the wreckers the 13th for an engine. And if the have a M100 i’ll try to pick up some of the parts for the AC too.
I hope you guys will like it.
