Hi everyone. Anyone into the TVR may want to have a look at my youtube channel where I am doing many mods & upgrades to the already brilliant car.
This is the playlist of upgrading & renovating the suspension & the full brake upgrade to Brembo. It is a ongoing restoration which will include the body./ The interior./ The brakes. Also how to get into your car when the battery goes flat.
Steve.

Do you really want to be telling people how to get into your car?

The answer is YES. When I post the video of how , you will understand. Nothing to do with pulling a wire or some hidden way of getting in.

I'm surprised your 2001 Chim 450 is in such bad condition ... I have exactly the same car and it's been well maintained though out it's life and doesn't need anything . If it did need anything it was done a long time ago smile .
I was also concerned about the remark about "entry" , was that just a way to get people to look at your videos ?

I guess i have done more than needed to the car, but for what I paid for it I thought it worthy of spending some money on it.
If you mean Entry about getting into the car then no it's not click bait . It's a mod i will be doing to the car so if you battery is flat you can still get in the car.

Getting into these cars isnt rocket science really so im not sure why so many get so wound up about giving the info out, its literally seconds to do with a stanley knife.

There a way in without damage if your battery is flat and the car locked though, not the scrote's way!

The project i am going to do involes fitting a external skt to use with a Ctec or similar. It will also double up as a input from say a small battery to get access in case of a flat battery on the car. Will also power a 12v tyre pump in the boot & even a car vac.
Nothing to do with stanley or bits of wire.

I've seen Anderson SB connectors used for that in the past - gives you a decent current capacity.
