    That is some serious progress in a short period of time.

    For sure - you read my mind. The mudflaps I have ordered from VW - probably collect tomorrow. Appreciate the info though. These the ones...




    On the air intake - please help. I will certainly take up that advice.

    The aftermarket snorkel is not to my liking Iím afraid.

    Looking good

    If you are getting some seat swivels imported let me know. Might also be interested to share transport cost. Apparently there is a guy in Kempton somewhere that also makes them locally. I got his number from the Motorhome guys that sell the Fiamma products in SA but has now lost his number unfortunately. Still on my to do list.

    I'd also be interested. Most of the swivels I've seen are for the double front passenger seat, and not the single which most of our SA vans seem to have.

    Jason, could you please take a photo of where your FR roofrack attaches to the roof.

    I sort of accidentally ordered a full length version and ladder from FR for my bus (I'm telling SWAMBO that it's your fault ), but now looking at the current rack, it appears mine has additional rails fitted to attach the Outback rack. My excuse is that I have a few FR accessories for the roofrack, that won't fit the Outback roofrack without some modifications.

    Oh, and I'll have an Outback roofrack for sale soon (it includes a removable expedition rail...and possibly rails to attach it to the roof ) if anyone is interested.

    There's a photo of the roofrack in an earlier post on this thread, without the expedition rail, which is stashed in my garage at the moment.

    Thank you, mine has an additional "rail" fitted in the groove on the roof where the FR brackets are attached. Will have to see whether it removable...or make another plan if it isn't.

    How is your wind noise , I have terrible resonance on mine.
    Front runner as well fitted on my double cab, and the table also makes a terrible rattle noise if experiencing a side wind.
    Please can you post a pic of the wind deflector , how far back it sits from the top of the windscreen.
    .My roofrak is maybe too far forward because its a double cab, nearly in line with front end of roof till the full length back to end of roof.

    I feel you... the wind noise that I had from my Frontrunner rack on my double cab was bad enough to cause me to remove it. I took a chance in the bus, being told it was not as bad. I agree though... the rack being forward makes it worse.

    Really almost no noise in the bus. I have to pay attention to it to even notice.

    Cup holders... where are they in the rear A simple little thing that was very shortsighted in having none for passengers in a bus.

    I looked around for some aftermarket options... lots of silly little options that I didnít like. The idea of the using bottle cages (the type used for bicycles) came to me. Worked a treat!

    The second row install:


    ...and third row install:
