    Stafford Aircooled Meet

    Thanks Sparky, I left SoCal in 2008 so could have been on here before then. Any way of easily finding username or posts from then? Or do you have a list of usernames I can look through?

    Rear Seatbelts in Panel Bus

    Thanks for your helpful reply Graham. Did you weld these nut plates to the bus? Does anyone have diagrams with measurements for the seatbelt mount and rear bench mount locations? I’d be interested seeing the isofix mounts in the bus if anyone has it installed. @froggy has a really nice setup on...

    I do yes, it’s a 70. The slider has the Louvre window and tailgate has a heated window, I bought it in SoCal in 1998 and brought it over here in 2013 I think. Yours does have unusual windows! Wow lucky man, what a win 😁

    Rear Seatbelts in Panel Bus

    Thanks Mike! Forgot you had a panel van. Do you still have any photos of it? Our child car seats are either isofix or require 3point seatbelts… Did your lap belt child seat have a leg in front so it doesn’t flip over? I’m thinking of possibly using a longish square pipe or angle iron behind the...

    Rear Seatbelts in Panel Bus

    Hi guys, Having just taken our little one on her first run drive in the Bus I’d like to see what the best options are for (having) seatbelts installed in the back of our Panel.

    Do your Kids love busses?

    Just had my first drive with our little one in the bus today! Whenever our little 2year old girl walks past the bus in the garage she pats it and says hello bus, just like her dada 😍 Due to only having two seatbelts I’ve never taken out the family on a drive, but thought why not try the...

    Your Early Bay Picture of the Day .....

    Looks brilliant! And I think a much more pleasing line height than the other one. Very nice work around the cutouts for handle and fuel flap!

    Hi David, Thanks for posting the photo of the headliner. Could I buy the two visor clips please? If the coat hangers are in tact I’d like to get them too please. Thank you.
