I'd have a word with the supplier too.

I replaced the 7 leaf springs on my Series 2 with later 5 leaf and she has still got her bum pertly in the air :)

The difference in floor should be easy to spot as well, seeing than LCVs have flat floors, unlike the Saloon derivatives.

headlining is about 30 pounds I think, and takes a pro not very long to fit, so no more than 100 pounds all in I'd say

I am considering taping mine in all the way, keeps the rust at bay and the clamps won't fall off.

I'd go with Cam's idea but have it in Platinum Grey.

It worked for nearly 11 months though with this set-up.

Hello all, I had a coil fail on me, as you do. What can makes things stop working? I can really only think of heat.
