    Heater box teardown and rebuild

    Oh that Alex! I accidentally bumped into her Youtube channel last week. I liked her "Roveralls", I wouldn't buy them second hand from her mind!! Maybe you could message her there.

    Sorry to hijack your Dirt thread Mick. Remember that lovely clean driver's seat yesterday? I wish I had video'd this. This one was a wee bit worse than the others, so I upped the dosage of ingredients and one hour soaking time. Bloody filthy.

    Smashing Mick. I'm doing the interior today, second application. I was watching a guy in the States and picked up a few tips. 20 squirts of a well known upholstery stain remover, one cap full pf the same brand carpet shampoo, half cap full of green multi purpose disinfectant, into a good spray...

    I moved a couple of pipes, and with the exception of the throttle cable, choke cable and servo pipe, I was able to take the manifold off to get at the gaskets...gasket.

    That's a pain Peter. No way to "hack" the tool? Could you fashion an adapter?
