I have checked Towsure and their kit is about £20.- cheaper.

I only don't know if the plug fits through the window. Anybody can me tell an...

I was just thinking of asking the same question. I want to put the main hook up point in the engine bay just like Matt and just have the lead out with the engine lid slightly ajar. I have seen a mains hook up kit on the JustKampers website for about £80.- which seems a bit much to me. Any ideas wher...

I am getting a 1600 fitted in my 67 split next week. The engine has been built by Laurie Pettitt and he told me to just use unleaded petrol (95 octane).

'Painting' heat exchangers

Don't know it this question has been asked before, can't find it anyway. Can you paint the heat exchangers to protect it a bit better from rusting? Maybe using Por20 heat resistant paint? http://www.frost.co.uk/item_Detail.asp?productID=9499&frostProductName=POR-20%20Aluminium%20(473ml)&catID=24&fro...

front seats

I am looking for 1/3 + 2/3 front seats for my 67 splitty. I might be able to get some out of an early bay. Would these fit? Also these are in a RHD van and my van is a LHD. Would I have to change anything to them?

Thanks for any advice.

Easy to buy?

Haven't heard of this system before. Looks very good. Can somebody give me some more info? Eg. What system type to buy, where to buy, what the cost is. I am looking into making my splitty a bit safer and this is one of the points I am looking at as well as 3 point safety belts in the back.

I know you can drive to a MOT station without MOT or TAX but it wouldn't be insured (small print in insurance claim). The change is small that something happens but you never know.
