Re: Doka restoration

This reinforcement specifically adds strength between the A and B pillars in a similar way to the ones fitted to a 16 van above the sliding door to add strength between the B and C pillars. I can only assume that the doka shell with 4 doors flexes more in this area due to the short roof and more rid...

Re: Doka restoration

I originaly thought all 16 doka's had this fitted. Then through checking with many owners of 16 Doka's I have only found 4 door dokas with this. This was checking years from 1988 till 1992. If your 3 door has this then it is the first one that I know of. There is also another reinforcement that fits...

Re: Fox shock servicing

At the price of the shocks I would have thought you could just go online and buy a rebuild kit. That's a big 0 from me on them then.

Re: Doka restoration

Image It is the outlined part. If you remove the front internal light, look inside, a 3 door will lead directly to the roof skin and sound tinny if tapped whereas a 4 door will have this skin in the way.

Re: Doka restoration

There are a lot ( relatively speaking) on converted 4 door 16's about. I have converted a few over the years. There is a definitive way of telling if it is factory or aftermarket. Factory 4 door had extra steel work in the roof. The vehicle birth certificate will note as well.

Re: Doka restoration

The reason I decided to do this one was because it is a factory 4 door 16 and did not want to see it stripped for a few 16 specific parts. Very very few factory 4 door 16's about. It is not a project I should have taken on but once started it is to late and have to see it through. Was going to be a ...

Re: Doka restoration

Yes bare shell rebuild. 40% https://i.imgur.com/8aN2cYK.jpg of chassi replaced and about 60% of body with new panels or very good second hand. Had to buy a complete better second Doka for parts and send a small fortune to Lars at tri-star connection. 60mm suspension lift so dropped subframe, engine ...

Re: Syncro diesel engine bars

Late ones have shorter angled bash plate mounting points as to longer straighter ones on the earlier carriers. I will take a few photo tomorrow if I remember.
