well its nice to finally be using the van and getting away, as always there are a new niggles you only discover once you driving it so Im currently working on them. Stripped and serviced the rear brakes and fitted new calipers, a big thanks to Brickwerks for locating a late RHS Girling caliper before we head off to the Westfalia Refuge camp this weekend. 8)

I bought a set of Syncro spats on the forum last year that were a bit tired. A bit of TLC, redrilled the holes and fitted new stainless steel bolts and they are as good as new. A big thanks to Bigjcc55 for his help and advice and posting me some innotec, top man 8)

I need to replace the bolts in my 16l spats. What did you use to bond in the replacement bolts?

Shaun I used this stuff, it was excellent stuff and went off really quickly. I fitted M5 stainless bolts rather than just threaded bar as I thought the heads would make it sit better and of course the innotec to bond it too which is great stuff

Was going to ask the same question. Mine have been sat in the shed for years.
