    my local dealer is a tit. when i mention a surf he looks at me as if i just kikt his wifes ***** hehe. i removed the valance and can see roughly how i would fit it. i wanted more floor clearonce though. but i suppose when i fit my 35" tyres it will all be sorted. thats if i ever afford the fekrs. cheers for the help.

    I realise this topic must have been dragged to death. but im kinda stuck. wher the hell do i fit it if a wana keep my original front bumper? cheers
  9. im looking for an alloy wheel to make up a set. i have three and like the size and style. there are no markings on the !Removed! and have pulled most of my hair out searching ebay sites round the globe and asking google etc. if i can work out how to upload a wee pic. could you all have a wee look and see if you have one you could sell... cheers... meant to say. they are 15" x 8.5 thats lip to lip. cheers
  10. take it a good run with everythn off. i.e. rear window demister. lights . all the draining stuff. when you use the vehicle at night mostly and winter. u have heaters. wipers radio demister etc all on and it will be short journeys. this eats the battery`s. hope you get it sorted. and its a free or real cheap fix. cheers
  11. after raising my surf i noticed when i put the balljoint spacers on that my front wheels sit further in than the rear, could i get away with using spacers on the front only??? i know not to use the cheap ones as your wheels make ther own way to where you are going,. any help welcomed. cheers watty
  12. Get a hold of a voltmeter. switch it to V volts and select. 20 there will be settings for 200 etc. but you want the 20. start the engine and put the red from the meter onto pos battery terminal. and the black from meter to neg bettery terminal. you should see upwards of at least 13.9. you want it to read 14.4 ish. then you will know the altenator is charging your battery`s,

  19. ive had my trackinf adjusted so many times. and it always pulled left. eventually got the fekr sorted and it runs straight. NOW though the fekr understeers real bad. the camber is set in at the top a wee tad as this seems to help when off road. any ideas?? cheers
  20. If you work in the recovery industry. I.E. rac. aa etc etc. then recovery is tacho exempt. or at least used to be 3 years ago or so. therefore you dont transport the machinery. your merely recovering it officer. hehe
  21. I got new side SURF stickers off ebay. just pay attention to the size stated though. use panel wipe or similar to take off any wax b4 fitting new ones. and use plenty of fairy liquid water and a good soft rubber squeedgy when putting them on.also dont wash for a few days after...
  22. Yeh 3.5t and above if used as commercial/business, any combination of trailer and tow or rigid vehicle etc..
