Re: Recommended repro sun canopy??

Excellent info, thanks!! I was looking at that Olpro one on ebay as a possible candidate, so may get that as a quick useable option before going down the more lengthy route of making a proper copy. And here's the link to the nice but pricey original one on ebay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpr...

Re: Insurance outside EU

I eventually found that HIC do additional cover (in this case for Morocco) and that insurance can also be purchased on entry at Tanger Med port, though the HIC cover looks more appealing. Trip has been put off until Spring though due to unrelated issues. Thanks for the tips anyway.

Insurance outside EU

I want to take my bus out of the EU for a month or so, but RH who I am insured with, wont cover outside the EU. Anyone had any experience of this or know of a solution/company which would cover me for this period?

Current to coil is fine, electric fuel cut off at carb works, engine turns etc, but the strange thing is I ran a test lamp from coil - terminal to earth a...

Re: fuel gauge.

You have to grind away most of the back of the bezel with a dremel or similar where it bends round to fit the gauge, but leaving four or five areas untouched to create some 'tabs' which you can then bend back to remove the bezel undamaged. If you try and remove the bezel without doing this it will b...
