Re: Side decal remover

Took most of the decals off my van during the week getting it ready for paint.

All it took was a hairdryer, petrol and patience :lol:

Re: Original camping pod gas hob

They seem to be a universal size but you need to make sure that the dials are on the top like the original or they may not fit/be accessible https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49643637408_302891eb70_w.jpg IMG_20200310_150900 by Sodium Streets , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49644161...

Re: Trying to find lowering springs

I'll keep ye posted. I actually bought a body kit for it recently too. I'm going to lower it first though and see if it will still fit. The picture here shows it on the standard springs on 15" wheels. I'll be putting on either 18's or 19's so maybe that will lift it back up a bit from the ground. I ...

Re: Trying to find lowering springs

Thanks Bob,

Re: Trying to find lowering springs

I found these on eBay a while back, the retailer in Japan has two different models, one for Rwd and one for 4wd. I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of these but want to confirm that they are the correct ones for my van. I have a 98 Bongo Friendee AFT 2.5TD 4wd https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RS-R-Dow...

Re: Tips for touch up painting

That por 15 is some tack. I completely covered the underside of my van with two coats of it (one was topcoat).

Re: Couple of questions regarding front speaker change

I put mine just to the right of the passenger footwell.
It was literally the only place I could fit it in my van where it wasn't in the way :lol:
