Title: U1300l Camper Conversion
Post by: Dan the Man on January 12, 2019, 09:02:38 pm
Iíve really just completed the first job of the very long list.... replacing the awful driverís seat with a nice comfy one.
My wife & I both think our Land Rover Discovery is the most comfortable vehicle weíve ever owned, so I got a leather Discovery 3 seat from eBay & fitted it today.

It was effectively just a task of constructing an adapter frame to accommodate the different bolt positions.  Despite all the measurements, I did end up chopping 40mm off the height once I tried it, but Iím delighted with the result.  The electrics are not wired in yet, but thatís because I need to install a 12v inverter for a number of additions I plan to make.

Hereís some pict of the frame and the fitted seat....

Hoping to get radio & CB fitted tomorrow.

Love the hatch on the military Unimog but it does make it difficult to mount radios 😀

Made some progress with the electrics over the last 2-3 weeks and how have a couple of 12v circuits up and running, installed beneath the glove box.

Joined my old club (strictly for Land Rovers) today up near Rest and be Thankful to see how the old girl coped on frozen ice & snow.  A great day out & lots of admiring looks from the LR owners....

I do like the front grill when itís the same colour as the cab it modernises them 👍
