So do you have any info on the roof rack fitted as it looks like would work well with a rood tent for my van.
Cheers Jez

Hi Jez,

I don't have any info on it I'm afraid. It's steel, very solid, can't find any indication of who made it. On the fence about whether I'm going to keep it, or not...

One for each pair. It's not the quietest setup, but it's ok provided you dong go too mad with your right foot!

Very smart, can't see on the exhaust but are the silencers linked or is it one for each pair of cylinders.
Too many projects..... Not enough time!

Exhausts: one each side. Sound good... characterful burble on light throttle and quite a bit louder (but not ridiculous) when giving it some beans.



Interior: nicely retrimmed captains seats and a triple in the rear (no idea where it originally came from). Screens in the front headrests are linked to the head unit Wink

I've rejoined the ranks of T3 owners Big smile

EJ22-powered Doka. Ducati tailpipes make it sound like an angry Beetle LOL Will be tidied up and sign-written. Bike rack of some kind (not sure what yet) in the load bed. 

A previous owner spent a small fortune on a full leather re-trim in the cab. Working my way through a long list of mostly minor things that need sorting... already fitted anti-rattle shims to the seats, cleaned out 30 years of dust from the inside of the clocks, emptied a fish tank's worth of water from one of the rear lights. Still to do: replace buggered lambda, full service, top wishbone bushes, sort fuel tank leak... 

Love it though...

My 1990 Doka. Bought of an old family friend who`s father sadly passed away before he could finish it. This was a proper builders truck and up until 2009 was a standard 1.9 DG. It is now running a late T3 aircooled 4 speed box mated to a mild tuned 3.9 Range Rover V8. Slowly getting parts together (it seems to be getting harder to get parts for the trusty t3`s these days) to get the trusty beast on the road again, Fingers crossed come next spring it will be ready for ticket and out on the streets making a few people jump

Dave
the only difference is the stay/support set up, the petrol uses the same silly wire thing as the locker doors and is on the left side of the engine bay, the diesels have the battery in the engine bay so there is somewhere to fit a knuckle so the diesel has a hydraulic strut on the right side, tailgate style; the wiring for the number plate lights is done differently as well, nice two pin plug on the petrol loom facilitates easy disconnection for removal of  hatch when required
Using the RJES air intake pipe and MAF plate on left side of engine bay meant I wanted the filter housing that side but the normal upside down later scooby air box won't fit in a pickup because of the big vertical internal posts behind the lights, a lot of looking at various airboxes on ebay found the picasso one which is off 2.0tdi so should flow enough air and takes a nice Man filter with a big dirt/moisture trap on it
