Repair Stories:
    * http://vwlt.co.uk/2016/06/16/simon-evans-lt-self-build-story/ :
        * "There was no budget I tried to look at it as a college course and learn on the job even though it was like night school working on it every day off and night at Emos unit for around 3 years. I would hate to think the amount of cash that has gone in to it – it’s got to be around the 8 to 10k mark by the time is done and on the road. And that’s not counting my time. Welding and engineering £4k, paint £2k, glass £700 plus fitting and re fitting due to a forgetful error."
    * http://vwlt.co.uk/2015/12/21/a-real-a-lt-ernative/ :
        people love their LTs and they're getting trendy
    * http://vwlt.co.uk/2016/10/31/andras-felegyhazy-and-his-4x4-extra-high-top-conversion/ :
        great conversion with specs

Buying Tips:
    * http://www.ukhippy.com/stuff/archive/index.php/t-39156.html "buying a VW LT, any advice?"
    * "Take a magnet with you, if it does not stick, there is no steel."
    * different differentials?:
        "Not much to say, except they are not all the same. There are fast and slow ones, 3.79:1 to 6.43:1"
    * electronics:
        * "The printed circuit on the back of the instrument cluster is prone to burning out where it goes around corners and the connector that connects it to the loom often corrodes and causes trouble it is not a risk you want to take"
    * quality:
        * "The LT is an extremely well built vehicle which was available in several different engine types. They were known for having problems with gear changes and have their share of common problems like all motor vehicles"

* raise in registrations:
    "Howmanyleft.com says that 2014 has seen approximately a 10% increase of registered LT Mk1’s in the UK, after a steady 10+ year decline."

* price of old ones bigger than new ones:
    "for this reason i put that there ... to investigate why 2000 year are same price (or lower) than 1980-1985s"

* it's bigger than Transporters

    Driving Trucko: Basics

Read "Basic Maintenance" part of the document!

Pedal positions:
    <------- #TODO write it down! :D

Main door key:
    * to unlock and drive use the newest looking key
    * the "bulge" is looking out - towards the end of the vehicle

Side door + back door:
    do not currently work !!!
    you can open the back door from the inside.

Starting:
    * use same key as driver door
    * turn car electronics on, wait 5 seconds, then start engine!

Gears:
    * gear #1 is only for very sharp climbs. use #2 for starting (like you would normally #1)
    * other ones as normal:
        (we tried 1-3 + reverse)
    * "reverse DOWN one UPRIGHT two DOWN three [...]"

BE CAREFUL:
    * accelerator pedal:
        It might fall apart. It's fairly easy to fix. Do not kick it from the sides.
    * the doors:
        especially in wind! they might blow out
    * see basic maintenance below!
    * [...]


---------------------

Also #Todo:
    * check other gears (4, 5) at proper speed
    * check all electric switches, etc
    * ask +dushan for idiosyncrasies (non-standard stuff) again when car is running
    * [...]

    The instruction video with +dushan:

This video was made when we took the car from previous owner.

VIDEO0326:
    0:20 enter
    0:30 keys explanations

    0:50 starting the engine:
        * with keys "high on the top"
        * count to 5 to warm up the engine

    1:20 gears:
        1:30 first own is very short (LEFT+LOW)
        5 gears
    2:00 put in cooling water:
        spent 4€ for "RADIATOR WATER" (green)

    2:40 enter from back:
        * "trick is to open from inside"

    2:50 checking oil
    3:00 opening the engine:
        in 2 movements
    3:30 engine is open, opening "engine coolant" tank:
        we need 2 litres !!
    4:10 opening oil:
        at moment is half full
        checking oil with reading indicators (via cleaning by paper)
        "has to be inside these two points"

    5:00 if the van stays still for a long time:
        "you cannot start the engine"
        you pump the diesel manually
        "now it's hard, because it's full of pressure"

    5:50 d: "i was thinking about cleaning the engine":
        "yes, you can do it"
        d: "i want to convince people car is nice"
    6:10 new gas bottle:
        installing it
    6:40 gas valves:
        it's the middle one put horizontal to turn on
        the other ones are "cut" and "for the fridge in the past"
    7:30 making the bed:
        need an extra piece of wood for the end
    7:50 some things were left, "you can have it"

    Engine

        Basics

Supposedly it's in good shape.
People say it sounds nice.

(via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_D24_engine )

* "The D24 was fitted in the Volkswagen LT range from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, with factory production from August 1978 to December 1995.[1] Specific dates of the variants - CP: 08/78-11/82, DW: 12/82-07/92, 1S: 08/88-07/92, ACT: 08/92-12/95.[1]"
So we have DW !

* "The condition of a head gasket is typically investigated by checking the compression pressure with a pressure gauge, or better, a leak-down test, and/or noting any indication of combustion gases in the cooling system on a water-cooled engine"
check head gasket +mechanic !!!

* "The camshaft drive belt also required changing at the recommended intervals, which was a pretty involved job, not least because of poor access in the under-floor engined LT vans, and the necessity of special (and expensive) locking tools to carry out the replacement, which have always been scarce and are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain"

antonio recommends:
    going to playa honda (?) to do an engine wash
    ~ 20€

however, cumbia has probably smart advice:
    "these things work until you start touching them too much"
    aka never touch a running system...



        fixing - slightly torn hose in engine

what is that pipe?
Dushan knew nothing.



        fixing - oil sitting on top of motor

so:
    * dushan say maybe a spill?
    * coming from where?
    * maybe gasket?

        exhaust tailpipe

Exhaust is really fucked. It has a hole and rattles.
It doesn't seem a priority though ???

2.4 petrol or diesel are both the same exhaust, turbo is different. 3 components:

Should replace with something to also make car more quiet.



        rust inside armature:

<antonio:
    * use "Dinitrol" to remove rust
    * If big problem, cut + weld + polish + fibre cement? + paint

hacky:
    * "cover with good spray paint. It will hold up exposed uncovered for a year or so but eventually break down and allow rust to start again."

cleaning the undercarriage:
    * clean with solvent !!!
    * "Black Asphalt Fibered Roof Tar": For the tar I use an ordinary 2" nylon paint brush

so:
    * remove a bunch of rusty metal if needed:
        * with cutting / punching out
    * radial OR hand grate to metal
    * "Make sure you have exposed all of the rust. Rust "bubbling" under paint usually extends farther than you can see, so brush away."
    * use chemicals:
        * like DINITROL
        * like "Eastwood's Corroless. -- I swear by it now and use it anywhere"
        * "It will usually dry, turning form white to black in about a half hour. You can accelerate this process (which will be slower if it is cold) by warming it with a heat gun"
    * clean the surface (solvent):
        "Before you do anything the surface must be clean and free from any salts, grease and dirt contamination."
    * primer
    * paint

filling gaps:
    * polish (rotary / hand)
    * use "glaze putty" / "epoxy mastic" (?) / "fibra de vidrio" / "masilla" / "body filler"
    * polish + vidrio again a few times
    * primer / foundation paint (can be a hand spray, but not optimal):
        "Bare metal must have epoxy primer, self etching primer, or DTM Direct to metal primer. Primer surfacer should not be applied directly to bare metal."
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNYOhCBZH4g
    * paint

manufacture + weld:
    * cut + bend pieces OR buy prefab pieces (~40€ per piece)
    * weld pieces

----------------

Q: is "primer" same as "foundation paint" ?




    HOW TO WELD

what is most suitable?
what are the criteria to decide?

ideas:
    * should be moveable from car
    * should easily charge:
        * on external 220V
        * internal solar
        * e-car plugs :D
    * [...]



    upgrades - autonomous computer system

    upgrades - solar

solar could power "always on" module:
    * easiest would be to keep a phone alive
    * if it fails have "local guardian" respond !

put it:
    * on the roof
    * how to fix it there? <----------- #TODO

[...]



    upgrades - water tank
nestor had one, but threw it out
"didn't need it" ??



    Running on used cooking oil

so:
    * find places to collect
    * find ways to clean
    * monitor quality and engine status somehow

    CHT: FAQ for "buying a car"

Why buy a car?:
    * we were spending 100€/week many times on a car
    * this just doesn't make sense anymore
    * we can also modify/hack the car, learn about it
    * we can store shit in the car

Is it worth the money for buying, tax, insurance, repairs and the hassle of upkeeep etc?
Especially if compared to renting through http://www.billiger-mietwagen.de/ or other cheap brokers?
Yes, see "Why buy a car."
Especially no brainer if there is to be a base that operates in a stable way.
The whole focus of http://totalism.org/season4 is investment, not renting.

How much haggle space is there when buying cars? How does this work?
???

Is it possible to negotiate a warranty with owner, and how [so it doesn't break in 2 weeks]? Is there any protection by law?
I think +alfredo spoke about this being made illegal, so the car needs to be sold as working etc. So you always have some protection. (?)

CHT: Should we go through the ITV now, even though there are a few months left?
This might be a good idea.
The owner must guarantee this is possible.

CHT: Do we know someone on Lanza that knows stuff about cars?
Not really.

What are the requirements for owning a car on Lanza? Insurance? Tax?
How much does all the insurance, tax etc stuff cost?
(above)

Who can drive the car?
Seems like anyone.
In case of accident they're covered. <--- ??? unsure

What's the deal with insurance [in case of accident]? Is it for the car or the person?
"""
2PADS/cht4c2-1.txt-    * insurance ~200€ (for car + person)j
"""

Who can buy it? Who to write it on officially?
???

Do they need a driving license to own it? [otherwise it's David that can own the car]
???

Is there an incentive to have an association own the car?
???

Can it be moved to the association easily later?
Probably the stamp fee and the other taxes to transfer a car have to be paid again.

Is it different (less complicated) for a local / a formal resident, or same for foreign person?
??? Maybe
It seems to be impossible to own a car in Spain if you are not a spanish resident.

Does the person need to be present here to do certain things?
Both seller and buyer have to go to the Registro de Propiedad on the Rambla Medular in Arrecife with photo id (to do the transfer).
For other things:
    ???
Check:
    ITV, insurance, ...

We buy a car and it breaks down completely. What are the costs?
Tow it away = 100€
Inspect it = 50€
Destroy it = ???

Should we invest +400€ to buy a jeep?
Maybe ???

Cars that can be fixed more easy / more modern cars?
When did this happen, around 2000? How to know this?
Different for different models.
Is this really good to have for us?
This impacts price / serviceability?




    "How to change owner?" !!

FACTURA DE TRAFFICO
EN TRAFFICO
Do it "sin agencia !!", otherwise it will be expensive.

* "transferencia":
    "If you buy from a dealer, the “transferencia” will be taken care of normally as part of the price – that’s changing the registration into your name. But if buying privately, you and the seller will have to do that job yourself."

via:
    * http://www.lanzaroteinformation.com/content/buying-car-lanzarote
    * http://www.lanzaroteinformation.com/content/car-options-people-living-lanzarote

PROCESS:
    * "Both buyer and seller should then visit Registro de Propiedad on the Rambla Medular in Arrecife, with their photo identification documents and Certificados de Residencia, as well as the car documents – the ficha tecnica and the permiso de circulacion."
    * "Tell the staff it’s a vehicle change, and they will give you a copy of a sales contract (Contracto de compraventa), and a copy of the form they need to calculate the sales tax."
    * "So for a €6000 car, you will have to pay €240 transfer tax. The buyer normally pays this, but it can be negotiated or even split. "
    * "Next you need to go to Jefatura local de Trafico (known as trafico), who are on Carretera Los Marmoles, opposite the petrol station, in Arrecife. "
    * ..."Once you get there, join the queue at the payment window on your left, and tell them you want to transfer a vehicle. They will take the money for a transfer (€50) and issue a receipt. Now you can take a number for the main windows."

EXPENSES:
    * SALES TAX = 4% of sale price ... so for 1000€ = 40€ ("can be split with owner")
    * TRANSFER = 50€

WE NEED:
    * certification of residence (green paper)
    * [...]
