Blowing Hot Air...

Blowing Hot Air...

Post  nhazelwood on Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:23 pm

Hi Folks,

Finally decided (as i've been using Walle on & off for the last few weeks) despite the distinct lack of snow in the Brum area, driving a scamp is a bloody stupid idea this time of the year, especially with no heater.

Simple question....(i hope)

Apart from a mini heater, has anybody put any different types of heaters in their scamps ? If so what were the original donor vehicles?

I'm in the process of possibly designing my own heater, but i'm having cold feet (literally). Would love to know if anyone has fitted anything a bit different.

Cheers,

Neil

The peugeot Scamps use a cut down 205 heater.

The fan was separated from the heater matrix and turned 90 degrees. I fabricated an ali sheet box to house the matrix and then joined the two with dusting off the top to supply the windscreen.

A simpler way of doing it would be to keep the matrix separate from the fan with ducting and to use an inline 80mm or 100mm 12v fan. as this would make a smaller unit. There are loads of these fans on fleabay and don't cost the earth.

I'm thinking of doing this in the Mini whilst retaiing the existing heater box.

Cheers James,

I've been playing about on the CAD the last couple of nights & was looking along the lines of a homemade version of this :~ T7design (as funds are very low at this time of year.

Looking at using a VW golf matrix (got one due any day in the post to replace the now split one in my daily drive), with a nice big 140mm axial fan for cabin heating & some 80mm CPU fans for a light screen demist. Will give me something to do over the festive season, in between hangovers of course....

Cheers,

Neil
