  1. Thanks Gordon, I will have a look this weekend at how difficult it would be.
  2. Hi. .. sorry, anther request in the ongoing bathroom renovations! Ok, so I have a sink waste that has a 28mm rigid waste pipe connection, but I would like to connect it to a 23. 5mm convoluted hose. Can this be done? I cannot seem to find an adapter to suit. Cheers as always
  3. I am seriously thinking of fitting an onboard tank under my Swift. Does anyone have any experience of how difficult a job this is?
  4. Hi again, Says it all really. I need to do a repair, but just want to check the specific plastic before I buy the filler/epoxy thanks
  5. Thanks for all of your help. In the end I had to use a reciprocal saw to cut off the top, then again to cut the lip from the unit. The amount of glue used was crazy. However, it is off now!
  6. Hi, I have been a little unsubtle so far. I have used a large drill bit and gone right through. The outer-casing of the sink doesn't really matter as it is broken anyway. However, looking at a bit that has come off, it seems that it is glued along the overlap join as well. Not sure how to loosen the glue as well.
  7. hi, thanks for these. .. all getting a bit complicated now, as I have drilled a couple with no effect. however, it seems there is glue underneath as well! Bit stuck now (no pun intended) Any ideas? Cheers
  8. Hi (again), Sorry for the amount of posts this week, but you guys have been really helpful so far! Anyway, I have removed the bathroom unit in my 96 Swift, as I have a new sink to fit on it. However, the lip of the sink appears to be connected to the base unit by some sort of plastic plugs (see picture). I am not bothered about the sink, but I need to keep the unit (the main bit you can see in the picture) intact. Does anyone have any tips on how to safely pop these connections? Thanks
  9. Hi, As part of the restoration of our 96 swift van, I have had to remove the mirrors in the bathroom. Under them were strips of hardboard stapled to the wall board. Is this normal? Do I need to refit these as well when I refit the mirrors, or can I put them straight onto the wall board? Cheers for any guidance. ..
