Few updates...
swivel out table leg..








Loaded it up to see what kind of weight it would hold....22.5KG on this..


Also spent all weekend under the van, had a 3rd gear selection problem so had a spare box checked over (DQL) from a 2000 1.9TD and fitted 0.65 5th gear....

Swapped over with my 95' CRN ratio box, only problems was i needed the rear mount from the later box to replace my early mount....
Running sweet as!!!!T:

Little update and a few changes...
lick of paint on the stove..



And a cupboard face lift



New switch panel..



And a bonnet strut cos its easier and spends soo much time open!!!



ive also been plagued with gearbox issues.. the DQL diff failed so had my original CRN rebuilt and refitted, sadly last month that died again, 2nd synchro was shot and the spring clips in the hubs on all gears had failed, 2nd hand unit i got was just as bad..so again had mine rebuilt and refitted with 0.65 ratio 5th..stuck a VR6 clutch in too..T:
