Cab light

Hi all. I have one cab light in my ‘85 panel conversion that is above the driver’s door. Does anyone know if this is meant to come on when I open the cab door? It doesn’t but works if I move the small plastic lever off centre so bulb is good. Be good if it came on automatically when I open the cab d...

Re: Recommendations for garages full restoration.

Hi. I know you're midlands based but as you said you're prepared to travel thought I'd share my own experience on this - we're based in Bristol. Our van is currently being chopped apart and resprayed by vdubresto just outside of Bristol. Mark has been great all the way through and reasonable with hi...

Online design tool for respray

Have found this online and it's been hugely helpful in making a final decision on our respray. Haven't seen it mentioned on here so thought I'd share. Also helps if thinking about changing wheels.

This where we ended up:

Re: Replacement latch for sliding window

I’ve noticed that JK do one. I phoned them and they say it’s only for factory fitted windows. Has anyone fitted one from them and know if it can be adapted to fit non factory windows? Cheers.

Re: Worth updating Zig unit?

Looking at the spec suggests that there is little difference. Seems very expensive compared to the cost of a decent smart charger and just using your current CF8 as a distribution unit. Having said that, I used my van for accommodation 4 nights a week for several years and never had any leisure bat...

Worth updating Zig unit?

My van is currently stripped out at the bodyshop so using it as an opportunity to check over the electrics. It has the original CF8 zig unit at the moment. I’ve had it looked at and the advice was along the lines of ‘it’s old and out of date and had a bad reputation, often referred to as the battery...

Replacement latch for sliding window

Looking to fit a more effective latch on my sliding window. The original broke and has been removed with a low grade replacement now in place. Anyone know of a particular latch or mod I could do to make it more secure and aesthetically pleasing! Cheers! https://i.imgur.com/w08Vllj.jpg https://i.imgu...

Re: Viking Roof Latch - need longer thread

I would check that your roof is fitted correctly and that the hinges are all okay. I have a super Viking and when I bought it it only had one working latch - the other was missing and a cable tie had been used. Didn’t have an issue with closing the roof and using the latch though. I now have protex ...

Recommendations for new bed

Hi all. Interested in any recommendations anyone has for a new rock and roll bed. Re-doing the interior of mine and changing out the current on for something newer. Remember reading about this on here a while back but can't find the thread now. Remember m1camperbeds being mentioned and have had a lo...

Thanks Tony, good point. All looks okay, there’s some pics below for anyone who might know better than me what I’m looking for. https://i.imgur.com/kUjZfsM.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FYJa2hL.jpg I noticed on the one I purchased it has 4 holes to attach it.

Steering column gaitor/boot

Should there be one of these? I’ve got a lot of air coming into the footwell when travelling 40mph+ and it seems to be coming in at the point the steering column exits the footwell. Have taped round it with gaffer tape and it’s made a difference. Just wondering if it’s missing a gaitor there - maybe...

Re: Benefits of a front spoiler

Some really useful info in this thread. Cheers all. Looking at fitting one myself and thinking the most straightforward way is to purchase the Brickwerks one. Am I right in thinking it’ll fit all vans? Mine’s a converted panel van that goes a wandering at higher speeds. Changed the steering rack bus...
