I got them from a place called Shore Vans. It was about £17 for 10 meters.

The bloke in there knows me now, as I’ve bought a few bits.....new third brake light, barn door hinge. No doubt there’ll be more to buy!! ImageImage

I got the handbrake cover from JF customs on eBay. I got the gear gaiter and knob from seller on eBay too. Can’t remember who as it was years ago.
I’d imagine you could get something similar still.

I gave the van a full service today, oil and filter plus air, fuel and cabin filters.
Good to go for another 6 months (I’m on 6 month oil changes now)
I had an issue when changing the fuel filter, I use a turkey baster to remove the fuel from the housing, then check for the dreaded swarf in the bottom, swap the filter then pour the fuel back in and prime 3 times before starting the engine, usually resulting in starting first time. This time however I forgot to put the fuel back in and after starting, the engine cut out and wouldn’t start. A few more attempts at priming and it started and ran ok.
Lesson learnt. Take your time Peter!!
