U1300l Camper Conversion
« 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.

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