    Making a temp sensor holder :)

    As some may know i have a temp sensor in my intake

    shown here
    the wire going in.

    it links to a temp display within my car, which will look like this, but black surround
    -t25qfcxmpmxxxxxxxx_57869005-jpg

    i got ordering some bits off ebay. some perspex, some 3m carbon wrap, the temp sensor and odds and sods.

    so far.





    got this lot and

    a switch im gonna put my horn on.

    firstly cut the perspex out



    and at the moment im wrapping in carbon....

    will update soon.

    For a minute I thought you were just going to pull the one out of your front right brake duct and have the OBC display it


    If that rolling pin was red that would be one funny pic

    hehe that sensor is long gone, i need to replace it. but i wanted to keep it for the ambient temp outside.

    ive also got a usb data logging temp sensor to, but i either need to make a carputer or wire in a laptop for it to log temps of the intake.
