Been browsing for a week or so
Just got a Bongo AFT, 1995 Green over Grey
Bought it quite cheap and it's probably the scruffiest one out there but then I'm not proud :D , it'll do for what I want (stick the motorcycle in the back and head off into the wilds)

I have joined the members only bit, well at least I paid for it through Nochex but haven't had anything back yet, I expect the admin is away for the weekend and it's only been 24hrs so far

Think I need to bleed the cooling system properly as it's had a new cyclinder head, on loooong steep hills if I use kickdown to get up it will begin to overheat, it's alright at all other times though, the fan seems to be working and there's enough water in there, I'd guess it has an air lock somehwere
Bits of rust on arches and the bottom of the tailgate is shot, little bits of trim missing here and there but nothing major, AFT works nicely as does everything else oh apart from the electric folding/adjusting mirrors

Happy so far and I hope to be a happy camper soon

Ooooh, sorry, I'm in South West Wales, 20 miles up the Tawe Valley in Ystradgynlais

Cheers Sparky but I haven't been sent the password or username yet so I'll have to wait before I can fix it
yeah, how dumb is that, the fusebox lid not being marked with what all the fuses are for
