Re: Traveller roof rack

i for one would not want to trust the gutters on the traveller roof to hold anything..

I know of one traveller with a roof rack.. if i can recall who it was i will ask them how they secured it.

Re: Traveller front seats

i am happy to be corrected, but i am not aware of any minors fitted with velour seats as standard, to the best of my knowledge standard seats are leather or vinyl trying to look like leather.. the seats could have been recovered at some point or more likely the seats have been replaced with seats fr...

Re: adjustable column

I have never done it but the dolomite would probably have the same spline pattern as the moggy.

Re: 155 Nankang or 145 Bridgestone

You cannot fit a pair of 145s on the back if you have 155s on the front anyway. whilst i am aware that you can not mix tyres sizes across an axle.. unless you are using a space saver and limiting your speed.. i have never been aware of anything saying your rear wheels must be the same size or bigge...

Re: Bonnet up height

before taking the roof off check where abouts in your area will take the panels. 10 years ago i had to take some to a tip 25 miles away and was limited to 5 panels a month but it was free. my neighbour has said he was being charged over 200 pounds to take his roof.. and off course make sure you have...
