Re: Anyone can ruin you engine

Seem to remember this being discussed a while back, someone had fitted a bar to the bottom of the tailgate to prevent opening. I'm not really concerned about.

Re: What lurks beneath

That sounds good, you'll get a better idea of the damage from inside. You can get replacement card trim clips if you happen to break any on removal.

Got to agree with this, I did mine a couple of years ago, very satisfying if a bit daunting at first :D

Re: Petrol smell inside when driving

Sounds like something has gone wrong with your breathers, you might want to drop the tank and check all the connections are intact.

Re: Re painting Badges

Yes ^^^ thats where I got my inspiration from, I did refurb my 'Camping' badge with a chrome pen but it didn't last. The stick on chrome letters work well, they're just a bit fiddly.

Re: Re painting Badges

I refurbed mine with satin black spray for the base and some lazer cut metalic sticky letters from fleabay for about £5. Fairly easy to do, you just have to be careful placing the individual letters on, it turned out really well.

Re: Varnish/stain birch ply

I stained mine with a water based stain, I learnt to let them completely dry out before varnishing. I've also gone for a satin finish but have used gloss on the inner kitchen surfaces as its hard wearing and waterproof.

Re: Some advice on sealing the fridge vents

Think the op wants to get rid of the vents not re-enstate them, welding in a patch and getting that looking right would be pretty skilled though.

Re: Hi Top Awning Rail

I've got an awning rail attached to my EMC hightop, it was already fitted when I bought the van. It works well and is set at a good height, I've used it a lot and never had a problem with it. I've got two awnings and a sun canopy, all of which slide on. I'd need to check but pretty sure that its att...

Re: Running fine on driveway - cuts out when driving

Have you checked that fuel is getting to the pump from the tank? Is the fuel filter ok?

Re: A few questions - new tinkerer

Hi and welcome to the forum! I'll have a go at 2, 3 and 4, check all the fuel lines as if you've found a perished one you're probably going to find others, they're a fire risk. There should be only one fuel filter which should be just after the fuel tank underneath, if there's a filter in the engine...
