    Thanks CleoMar. It seems the bed changed at some point…. NLAVW sell hinges for late and early bays, they are different

    Group buy- Delrin bush for shift rod

    we might be divided on tyres, engine oil and stock/lowered but it seems we are united on paying £40 for a tiny bush in hope that it helps us find 3rd/reverse etc. thanks Mike for finding a topic we agree on 🤣

    Westy bed hinge springs

    Thank you Nigel. There is just no way that mine will do that….. I think might do some experimenting with the positions of the front bracing legs or other points…. At the moment there is just no give at all if I try and lift that leading edge of the seat/bed when it’s in the bed configuration...

    Westy bed hinge springs

    i know ive slept in this van close on 350nights, but am wondering if i misunderstand how the bed "is supposed to work". to fold it from bed to seat i have to reach down between the big cushion and the seat back with one hand and with a fair amount of grunting lift it 3 inches. after that i can...

    Westy bed hinge springs

    They don’t for the early. I called and they did a comparison. They sell hinge springs for late bays and complete hinges for earlies. The complete hinges have bespoke springs…. And they won’t sell me them separately

    1969 Westy parcel shelf above the bed

    My 68 had a net, but I upgraded to a bruised forehead. With a bit more sense, I’ll probably go back to a net……. Whose Annette I hear you ask…. Sorry I’ve still got concussion. Man that headbanger hits you hard on a Saturday night

    Westy bed hinge springs

    Hi. I’ve been away at the weekend and been reminded how awkward the bed is to fold up in the morning. There were at some point some remains of small broken springs on the hinges. Anyone know of a source of new springs, what size the should be and how they might fit. Mine is a 1968 if that...

    Indicator lights on speedo face 1970 Bay Window

    I did similar with mine when I re wired it. A simple and easy change although I’d be happier if I’d made an effort for them to be ‘off’ by default
