    Headlining - one or two parts!?

    As many have said, It sounds like your camper started as a van. I think the 'spikey rail' is available to buy

    No thermostat and no vents flaps

    So, the thermostat and vents allow the engine to warm up when its cold, blocking air to the barrels/heads until the stat expands and the flaps open, allowing air to pass over the heads and barrels, as I suspect you already know. Personally, I kept them all in our buggy engine, mainly because at...

    Servo problem with new Weber ict 34’s

    I'll be fitting the same carbs to my bus, so just to clarify, there is now one balance pipe between both carbs, and a separate take off for the vacuum on the left carb, is that into the manifold? Any chance of a pic?

    T’Haus Flipped Spindles / Coilovers

    I used a small spacers on the bottom of mine, worked fine. i seem to remember the GAZ eye isnt as wide as a stock shock, so it gets pulled over towards the bump stop when you do the nut up. I didnt like the shocks, and have gone to uprated stockers from jk, much nicer ride. I had to modify my...

    Walk through seat back cards, how do they fit?

    Thanks all. Dont suppose that bottom piece is available anywhere? My van was a shell when I got it, so none of this was in there. The rivets, are they pop rivets, so there's about 5mm or so sticking out the back behind the seat? And what are the metal strips for? I looked at a bus at...

    Walk through seat back cards, how do they fit?

    Ive managed to get hold of the padded top and sides for my walk thru, and have tmi panels to go on, but how does all this attach? From what I have found, there are metal strips behind the seat that are screwed thru to hold the pads on to the metal bulkhead, but what about the panel, there's no...

    Leaking front Windscreen seal.

    My screen leaked, good quality rubber, but the screen wasn't fitted properly, not centred in the hole. Answer was to take it out, another good quality rubber, (same make as before) and refit, no leaks.

    bays and blowers

    I've been thinking about adding a Kompresor Haus blower kit to my new 1600, the thinking being that it would give good torque, so improve hills etc. Apparently the 'mild kit' boosts a 100 to about 90bhp, and they've sold quit a few to bay owners. Today, I received Hayburner, and there's a little...

    Cornwall ‘22

    I down loaded an app to my phone and drove the van, I now know 60 is 55, so I try to do between 60 and 65 on the motorway, below 35 around town for cameras. I think Speedy Cables in Wales offer a recalibration service, at least they used to. https://www.speedycables.com/
