Hi Everyone,
I am new to the forum, so big hellooo!
I am based in Somerset and have just
Purchased an lt35(86) 2.4d.
After getting the Karcher out it would seem
The majority of the bottom panels on the
Driver side are in need of replacement.
Are the ribs replaceable? Couple look worse fo
Wear along the bottom. Plenty to get on with
Our dreams are going to be built.
I may call on the experience of u guys.
Many thanks and cheers

hello!
I have now owned our LT35 (1989) for about 3 weeks or so.
The folks on here have a huge amount of knowledge and are so helpful.

Welcome!! Big smile

Hi folks

Just had my 94 2.4D LT35 minibus camperconversion for a few weeks now, little bit rotten but not too bad, hole under battery and some side struts (maybe ribs Rob is talking about) underneath between outer sills and chassis. Found these guys who break LTs well worth a look for panels.. company is Alfasud-parts online. I'm based just outside Thetford on A11 if you're chugging by fellow breeze blockers welcome. Tea and empathy free

Hope the wind was behind you just being changing glowplugs today all done PITA. Just got to fill with antifreeze/coolant and fix ridiculously wobbly accelerator pedal.

Next time you're up the A11 there's a great stopping point in Santon Downham still free parking with toilets in forest by the river link below:

Also good access for canoeing and cycling.

Asiormax can provide most panels, just search for sale for details.
Buy a welder it's the only way to keep old campers on the road unless you deep pockets.

Great thanks Vanorak still waiting on fresh coolant to put in before firing up after changing glowplugs, managed a bit of a fettle around other stuff on the van today. Thought I might try a second hand breathable caravan cover to slow down the tin worm over winter. The more I poke around the more I like these vans even with the Tetley 2000 perforation bodywork. Cleaned the side door runners and reoiled and loads better.
   
Thanks Michael

Hi Michael, and welcome to the forum, FYI "vanorak" refers to how long/how many posts someone has made on the forum it isn't everyone's forum name, which is why it says "newbie" under yours SmileSmile, (I saw you thanked Chappy as "vanorak" on your wanted post as well), the one you just thanked is LTCamper89 LOLThumbs Up
