    Looks absolutely brill. What's under the (lovely) dog. Storage box?
    I'm as green as the truck with envy. Assume it's a 300tdi. Like the home made "takeaway" hook, always hang my googoo bag on that for long journeys.

    Its a cracker tbh its had all the welding done its not perfect but its had a mint spent on it & most of it is
    less than a year old I delighted with it. :)

    Yes matey its a 300tdi it does look great for an old disco, you are correct....the back has 2 storage drawers, one side has the sides for the awning & rad wading cover the other is spares & straps ect I need to re-do the top as there are spaces
    at the each side an also the rear & I don't want my pooch to fall down them.
    I might make lift out lids same as boat storage lockers.
    googoo bag lol

    That's a super cool tidy looking disco. Wanna swap with mine?

    Those cup holders look interesting. Not seen them before.
    Stock ones cover the heater controls
    Good find mate

    And those friggin OE cupholders hold f all except standard can's the number of times a bottle has fallen out under my feet as I'm driving around something! AND the stupid stay-in-stay-out catch breaks for a pastime. End up pinching the one off the ashtray or whatever. AND you have to move your drink from side to side to operate the heater/ac all the time. Look brill but don't work well. Ministry of carp Design!
    Still gritting my teeth with envy!

    Just realised, "Bonny banks of loch Lomond" We spent Christmas week in Tarbet, or rather using it as a base, in our D2 last Christmas. Fantastic countryside, especially loved Glen Etive, but it is all lovely. finding a Green Lane was impossible though. We found the road sign with a red line through a bottle amusing!

    You've got a point the oem ones are pishhh ive had bottles fall out & underneath the peddles :mad:
    I take it you like my new purchase then :)

    Tarbet is lovely as is Glen Etive but my fav is sunrise at Glen Coe in the winter, I like to get up early for some snow
    boarding & its an outstanding site to see :cool:
    There are no green lanes here only off roading centres like drumclog ect but a leisurely drive through the mountains
    & lochs make up for it :D

    That looks like it has had a lot of love lavished on it at some point, very tidy, not sure if you're aware that planning permission might be necessary when getting your erection out in public places :eek::eek::eek:

    Hope you are going to keep this and not dismantle it like all the rest :rolleyes:

    Good job well done! Fiddly ****ers aren't they!
    Both my rear passenger doors need those springs doing, and the viscous noisy along with a dry sounding bearing on the water pump. Mot first though.
    That switch box. Home made or shop do you know??
    Sill a nice looking car! Get my mot and I won't wanna swap! :p
