Re: Window rot panel van - solution?

To post pics in topic - in the icons above the text box there is one which is a solid black square with an "i" inside.
click that :ok

Good luck with the repair - Sounds a cheaper option even with new rubbers.   Be maticulous about protecting the bare edges from the cutting

Re: 1.8 t at 50 degrees

I think my exhaust system would have benefitted form one of those flexible sections.  Current was is almost toast and leaking, I'll make a note to include one on the new system.

Re: Awning Fitting

Have you looked at the pole and clamp method.
There are awning rails you can buy like a J or C channel, i have seen sections of this mounted on the roof under the pop roof.

Re: Cab door seals...

Mine are stubborn - we have found it easier to open window slightly to help - else its SLAM  -  and I always have to tell new passengers this. had the van 6 years now and although its a bit easier, its still the same. I also need to push the door slightly before pulling the release trigger as I feel...

Re: Help! How much to repair?

As Moki says, its hard to say - but there is a lot of work on show and you usually find 3 x as much when you start digging. The pic with the 'Artex' is a worry - its not even a good bodge.  Its above the jacking point.  The rust looks very well established and therefore has likely gone deep.   Attem...

Re: Awning

We bonded a reimo rail to a T5 without the self tapping screws.
Can't recall the sikaflex type (they are not all the same), but the black stuff which comes with the rail is mega strong.

Re: Flooring

we have a ply floor topped with vinyl (with raised circle pattern and matt finish).  Its nice and grippy and very hard wearing.

winchweight used the jigsaw foam flooring tiles in his - I like the idea, warm to the touch and soft when kneeling in - may go with this next time

Re: tyre preasure

Yup, sell on those horrors and get some proper wheels and tyres. Mefro 15” steeliness with 215/75r15 ATs from your favourite maker (BFG, General Grabber, Coopers, Michelin). I run ours on 38psi all around, although some run the rears a little higher than the fronts. I air down off road and air up w...

Re: Is this normal?!

As above, exhaust mount missing - or ripped itself to bits. Mine did that - and when I replaced it the force required to align it and get it bolted up was ridiculous - bolting the other side up causes that end to really kick out and mis-align. I'm hoping when I get a new exhaust it will be a much im...

Re: Tailgate not sitting right after fitting new seal

I twisted my tailgate once  -  after fitting new gas struts, I closed the gate to one side - I later noticed the other side sitting proud at the bottom.  I simply opened it again and gently reverse twisted it.  Bizare, but it worked, ever since I have been careful to close by pushing down at the lat...

Re: Running time on compressor fridge

Mine runs for days no problem ( I was even amazed it mananged it these last few days after being stood for so long and well past their best batteries).  It kicks in and the comp runs for a few minutes at a time. Stab in the dark, but during your test run, have you got the fridge full of stuff (or at...
