PostForum: Vanagon   Posted: Tue May 27, 2014 11:57 am   Subject: Rear tranny mount - bushing removal

Ask yourself who is being hired for these jobs. They are paying for cheap labor, so you get cheap service. Often you get some really nice young woman who is totally clueless. And some of you are sa ...

IIRC, it's a coffee shop, right?

You could create a mobile coffee van. A long-range version of the food trucks that are on every block in the PNW.

Orygun also has pull-outs for slower traffic t ...

Thx. I've often used the 3M blue things to add radar detectors, which of course don't draw much current.

For an inheritor of a PO'd Van, would you also suggest removing the 3M devices and replacin ...

Have a fantastic trip!

It is possible to drive Usal Road from Shelter Cove to Usal Campground. Highly recommended. Sometimes not passable in winter due to mud holes, but this is a drought year.

what is needed is a cutoff switch that sticks up thru the battery cover - it could take you some time to remove 4 screws and then undo the battery terminal bolt
