Re: Bongo birthday

I do love the sound of a Spitfire engine! Someone should pop one in a Bongo, it would be a great 25th birthday present! I have been lucky enough to hear that sound very frequently as they were flying a two seater out of Biggin Hill several times a day for the last couple of years, usually out over ...

Re: Stuck At Home During The Pandemic?

First thing I did was phone Ian and renew my (slightly overdue) membership.

Next job is the perennial drop links renovation and then the wheel arch rust!

Nudist camp closed so sunning myself, suitably clothed, in my garden which is thankfully sheltered from the cold wind.

Re: Windscreen wiper arm length

Got it!

It's the arm that's longer on the passenger side, not the blade!

What I really like about this forum is that people don't generally post duff information!

Happy Christmas!

Re: Windscreen wiper arm length

Looks like I've got it the wrong way round.

Can't wait to go and look but I'm not on line again until I next come to a WiFi cafe!

Re: Windscreen wiper arm length

Surely the longer one is on the passenger side?

Unfortunately I'm not near the van at the moment so can't check either!

Re: Windscreen wiper arm length

I fitted a new driver's side wiper a few weeks ago.

16 inch. Bought it in Lidl expecting it to be in a metric size which I had measured in anticipation. That's Europe for you!

Re: crafty space saving installation suggestions

If you are not using the van for family purposes, I would recommend taking out the rear seat if it is the bench type rather than flip ups. You can save a bit on the insurance and have more space for carting things around. I slide the middle seat to the back and use 'Really Useful' boxes as lower lim...

Re: Overheating - Looking for troubleshooting steps

I've found a way of getting the bung in without scalding and without letting air back in. For all recent bleeds I have been using a bucket style yogurt container as the bleed reservoir and seesawing above and below the header tank level until I am satisfied there is no air in the system. An added bo...

Re: Removing middle bench seat to create space - a good idea?!

Ah! I forgot to mention another advantage of taking out the rear seat instead of the middle one is that 'the bits left sticking up are out of the way at he back and make a convenient set of stoppers to set the folded down remaining seat in bests place for folding flat. Of course, if you decide to ke...

Re: Removing middle bench seat to create space - a good idea?!

If your rear seat is a bench on full length rails, you will be better off removing that as it is lighter to lift. The middle bench can then be positioned at the back for sleeping, further forward if you want to talk with passengers while driving or anywhere in between. Most of all, the middle seat i...
