As in the hydraulic cam followers aren’t fully pumped up, a drive ...

Re: 5th Seat with Three Point Seat Belt

Thanks for the suggestions. I wouldn't want a forward facing seat in the sliding door area as it would take up too much space.  What I like able the rear facing one is that it would double up for sitting around the table. Good to know I might be able to get a cheaper seatbelt somewhere else.  I'm o...

Re: Unidentified pipes/lines connected by 3 way splitter

Looks like the unit on the top is part of the ignition, possibly an ecu with vacuum control , or do you have cruise control? the pipes are vacuum pipes( not fuel) the fraying isn’t unusual but they’re chreap to replace, 5 mins work and £5 of pipe

Re: 5th Seat with Three Point Seat Belt

That seatbelt isn’t anything particularly special, you could buy something easy enough for much less, the necessity for a three point is less so when not forward facing, I have one of those jumps seats and was just pondering the headrest, not had a chance to properly look but it seems to be a stock ...

Re: High Top Removal

It could well be bonded on with resin , it’s pretty normal to be attached that way , usually a couple of inches deep all round, just be careful not to flex the roof when leveraging, it’s easy to crack
