jsj from the Netherlands
« on: November 05, 2017, 07:37:19 PM »
Hi there,

Already reading for months now on this forum. Much more info then on the dutch sites to be found here !

I'm about to buy a Fiat 126 and therefore i found it to be time to register and properly introduce myself here. My name is Jarno, living up north in the Netherlands.

My daily car is an electric Renault Zoe which I use for business, our family car is a Ford Focus Wagon Ecoboost. I have driven al lot of Fiats in my early days like a panda Mk1, Cinquecento sporting, Punto GT Turbo, Bravo HGT, and a Alfa 147. The last one was a Diesel and it went downwards after that...  ;D ( children and stuff that comes with them  )

But now is the time for me to enjoy a small Fiat again as a project car. We have got a small isolated garage for the car were it can sleep comfortably.
More details about the car hopefully will come in a few days. I will keep you posted !

It looks nice en it also drives nice as wel. But it didnt last...

My quick analyse tells me the alternator does provide power but it does not charge the battery...

Any suggestions were to start ?

Car is on transport towards my home adress and wil arrive tomorow.

Check the alternator brushes, check the fan belt, check the battery.  ;)

Finally, she's in my garage...

I will start a project thread on this forum soon.

First have to sort out the alternator issues.

Why is it that whenever anyone on here posts a picture of "my garage", the garage is immaculately smart, clinically clean, and generally indicative of someone with a well-ordered life, completely in control of their cars and their lives, at peace with themselves and doubtless they sleep well at night too?

Whereas with *my* garage...  fortunately there's so much junk and detritis in it that usually no one can get in to see what a midden lies within... life is so unfair ...  :cry:

PS: nice car !!
