Just Bought a Hijetta!

Post by sloperuk on Mon Dec 16, 2013 9:48 pm

Hi all,

Just went and bought myself a 1998 Hijetta that has most definitely seen better days!
Me and the other half are going to see what we can make from it's poor dejected self over the winter. So hopefuly we can enjoy a little micro van camping come the warmer months.

It will take some doing, so I will no doubt be picking everyones brains.

I need two tyres ASAP but I am struggling to find some. I'm all the way down in sunny Brighton so if anyone has a tyre place they normaly use or some advice on where to buy reasonable priced rubber then it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Sloper.

Hi Sloper,

Welcome to the madhouse! I'm in rainy Eastbourne so it's good to find another Southerner on here.

I insist on 6- or 8-ply tyres instead of the usual car 4-ply, and they cost me around £40 locally. I've heard that you can buy tyres online and have them fitted at your local National Tyres for an all-in price that's competitive. What sort of prices have you been quoted there?

Another Eastbourne Hi-Jetter here (currently working in Brighton), will hopefully see you out and about once my new fuel tank (cheers Woody) is fitted.

Welcome Sloper. You don't say whether your Hi-Jet is a 1000:or 1300 as 1998 is the changeover year on an " S " plate.
Nice to know you have a couple of very nice helpful members near you in PFM and Chris. Woody.
