    Default How Many Fans?

    Hi Renault lovers. A quick question to the administrators. How many active members do we have in the the Renault forum here?

    Yeah I made the conversion and run my interior fan off freshly ground coffee and organic NZ butter.

    Made the world of difference.

    Ah no, you need to put them first in a bur cycle. Some use a conical pass first, but not recommended. Straight to the bur.

    Planar burr all the way, unless you have $2.5k + to spend on a commercial slow speed conical burr.

    People register for AF as a whole. What forums they visit is up to them.
    I don't know whether an admin could even give you the metrics; or even if they have any meaning. I occasionally visit the Peugeot forum (very occasionally). I've never owned a Peugeot, because I do visit, does that make me a fan...... hopefully you get my meaning.

    back to the fans - some members seem to have seen something shiny and gone off on a tangent.....

    My R26 has 2 fans - one for the rad - one for the cabin.

    How about these new LED retro fit headlight globes though that have builtin cooling fans...now it gets confudling !

    Cheers

    Some peeps might consider this to be an anorak rather than just a fan..just sayin'.
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    I'd agree with a Lurker tag, but not an anorak. That would imply some knowledge on my part of Peugeots and Citroens, of which I have none.

    btw, that's a nice pug 403 in your profile pic. Did you restore it yourself?

    You could always add up the number in the various car clubs. Of course there would be many more not in clubs. Not sure you'll get a very accurate answer either way.
