    Demister tube in Dash

    I seem to remember taping mine on with duck tape. That seems to have held up very well...

    110 lifting roof (has begun in earnest)

    How has that happened ?

    Bilstein b6 bushes

    I contacted them directly and they sold me a full set - they were super helpful and a really good price. It started off with me emailing them and they said:

    The rot on the tub is really only on the end panels, either side of the tailgate (not sure what you call them?), and a small section on the bulkhead that needed cutting out. This is where the rod that retains the spare wheel is bolted on: The lip on the left side of the picture is where the floor goes. I posted a pic of the floor earlier - it’s been made in 2.5mm ans seems a lot thicker that what came out. I cant believe how many holes have been drilled in this. Both sides are the same - it’s just successive changes to number plates, back lights, changing the badges, and retro fitting indicators.

    Chinese diesel Heater under seat on a 110.

    Thank you ! And sorry for the typo. I think I searched under rheostat and they were coming up and £89 😳

    Link here to where someone has dismantled the basic controller: https://www.zinreich.de/blog/inside-the-webasto-heater-rheostat/ It seems the pot/rheostat is 2.2kw - Googling a pot of that resistance seems to show that they’re expensive? I’d like to have used this type from the series : https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F282567885676 But I think they are only 0-20 Ohms

    Mine is the Airtop 200ST - so just before the CAN came in with the STC model I think. I found the wiring .. The white and red works for it to just be a cold blower I think. It looks that red and black are the simple switch for on/off - with blue and white going through the rheostat. It would be nice if I could wire a series rheostat in there to keep it looking the part in my 80” - but I would think the chance of the resistances matching must be almost zero...

    What are the other wires that run to the rheostat controller for? This looks quite neat: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F232190442696

    I was going to go planar until a good 2nd hand Webasto came up. When the Chinese copies the Yamaha PW50 - all their parts were interchangeable. Only the quality varied - so it’s possible ....

    Thanks Nick @Snagger

    I wasn’t convinced about them - so paid more for a 2nd hand Airtop.

    Wow it’s a real thing... I wonder if they have a Chinese diesel heater on there?

    Starting to clean the galv on the windscreen now. It’s quite thin on the actual frame - but it’s coming up nicely. My NOS door tops are a blessing:

    Do you have a picture Neil?

    I have heard some sellers say that it’s better to have a smaller one running near to capacity than a bigger one that never gets near it though 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Inch and 5/8 by the look of that.

    Got it - thanks @Gazzar 👍🏻 I was googling for it but only getting pictures of the individual parts. I’ll think about this - 1” seems a reasonable amount of clearance to me, it seems like the mounts would need to disintegrate to get that amount of movement on that plane!? it’s cited by a number of manufacturers as acceptable and my local peers say I’m ok at that, but I also respect the opinion of folk on here.

    @FridgeFreezer are you happier with an inch of clearance? 😊 Yours H. Heathen

    I remember you posting about the diesel going in back at the beginning of this thread... 😊 If it had still had its original engine when I found it I’d have kept it, but it was gone - and I did try to track it down! My goal is to make this as useable as possible, so I can use it as much as possible. It’ll be very economical, powerful enough to keep up with modern traffic, I’ll be warm in it!, I’ll be able to plug my phone in, I’ll have modern tyres, and I’ll have lights that are bright...... all of that means my family and I can build memories from as many road trips as we can plan and make time for. plus I love the sound of a diesel - something reassuring about it 😊

    I haven’t seen one of those? Do you have any pictures? Or a part number please?

    Both wings are on with the galv fittings - which cleaned up lovely 😊 The other windscreen bracket went on after I’d taken the photo... Exhaust is done - it’s come out really nicely. I wanted it to look as 80” as possible - despite being a much bigger diameter. The full install - looks a bit like Land Rover might have done it don’t you think?

    Thanks for the input @FridgeFreezer and @Snagger. It wasn’t finalised in that picture - and the picture did make it look worse than it was .... but the radiator has been moved ... there is about an inch there, though this picture still makes it look closer than it is:
