Picked up a heater for it tonight 😊 

The 2KW Webasto Air Top - I may be the first person ever to be warm through a winter in a Series 1?

Feels a bit slow at the moment - from a mixture of not a lot of progress and what progress their has been notnbeing very visible.

With the Air Top going in the 200tdi heater circuit becomes redundant- here’s the blank:

The seats should be finished end of this week, with the heated elements in. They’ve been done by the same chap who does the Land Rover Reborn builds - he’s done a cracking job of getting the pads in; having cut a channel in the foam for the cables and putting a nice old bit of leather at the back for where the wiring comes out.

The tub cappings and floor have been removed - the floor was thin, hard, and cracked - so a nice new thick piece of alloy is needed to make it serviceable. I’m trying to uncover the original finish on all the galv parts, but a couple may have had too hard a life ...

I’m trying to work out what the neatest product(s) will be for the electrics in the Seat always box. I want a fused distribution box - with switched loves via a relay for the heated seats, and probably a permanent live for both the Webasto and a USB point. Any suggestions welcome !?

Bluesea do some nice little junction boxes if you've got somewhere to hide it out of sight.

Thanks Ross - I was looking at one of theirs with a negative bus on it and 6 junctions: https://www.mudstuff.co.uk/blue-sea-fuse-box.html

I think they could work quite well - and keep everything neat and contained in the seat box.

I did look at one of these :https://www.adventurebikeshop.co.uk/electrical/altrider-rowe-electronics-pdm60-power-distribution-module-fuse-block-replacement-/ so I could put delayed switch offs and so forth on the circuits - but so think I’d get limited benefits on this.
