Re: Cargo floor ply

It’s going in a panel van and I intend to cover it with a rubber cargo floor mat. The furniture issue isn't a problem as it had a homemade interior of which I’ll only be refitting the wardrobe and fold out bed.

Cargo floor ply

What thickness of ply is ideal for a cargo floor and can anyone recommend suitable insulation to go underneath.

Re: Starter issues

To be honest the wiring is not in the best condition. It's the original loom and is well over due for replacement so I guess that's the most likely culprit.

Starter issues

I've been having starter problems for a while. I've tried several starters both new and old, replaced the bush, cleaned earth connections all to no avail.
With the ignition on the starter works fine if I short out the terminals, is this an ignition switch issue?
Auto electrics aren't my forte.

Re: Starter motor issues

To be honest I haven't changed the bush simply because I didn't think it was that critical. Obviously I was mistaken.

Starter motor issues

I've been having starter motor problems on and off for a while now. After trying two old ones I've fitted a new Bosch starter but I'm still having issues so I'm wondering if the fault is elsewhere. Basically when the ignition key is turned the lights dim slightly but the starter usually doesn't turn...

Re: BRAND NEW Sambas & Barndoors

Wouldn't touch one even if I had the money. At the end of the day it's a repro and not the real thing which is what it's all about in my opinion.

Re: Apart from Vic Farm & SH.....

Apart from the AGM and Stanford hall we don't do UK shows. They're all the same and just money making enterprises where you can buy a tea towel but not a decent swap meet in sight.
I'd much rather do a European road trip.

Re: Whats the best Splitty Colour

Dove blue for commercials, PGSG for anything else and preferably OG paint warts and all.
