Hi I’m ready to put the upper tailgate handle in but need some assistence with photo and drawing of the mechanism required to move the arms. As can be seen in the photo mine is stuffed, I can make one if I have some dimensions.

Great result on the chrome and good to know. I’ve heard some horror stories lately.

Get onto them straight away and they should replace, they are usually pretty good for that

Despite the set backs in the bumper fit up, I’m hopeful I can smash out quite a few of the outstanding fiddle jobs over the next couple of days I have off, it would be great to get the back wheel arches cleaned up and painted and por15 all the inside of the gaurds and floors before body deadening sheeting can occur.

Still a bit to do inside the van spagettijet. I didn’t realise as you’ve got the outside all painted? Following this with interest for when I do inside my EK van.
Cheers
