    Put it up on axle stands, all four corners

    removed heat exchangers and exhaust

  2. Mate, at a quick glance they looked like 2 skinned rabbits,
    think i need to go to "specsavers" :-[
     
  3. Don't throw them its only the outer skin that's gone, they'll be good for someone.

  10. Dash looks great :thumbsup:

    Can i ask where you got your new tank fittings and how much?

    I've still got my tank but the fittings are past there best.
     
  11. Cheers bud. They are cheaper than i thought. Might soon add up with postage etc though.

  13. Nice work. Do the mats cover the flat bit of the wheel tub behind the seat?
    Mine stop short & it winds me up.

  14. Drivers side done, no pics as it is pretty much the same as the other side.
     
  15. There was never a side piece repop'd for the westy so I haven't done it yet, not sure how I'll do it bit I will figure something out.
