Maybe im sick?

Post by Vanzy on Tue May 30, 2017 9:21 am

Hi lads my name is Casper and i bought my first Hijet 4 months ago. It is 1998 1.0 Hijet with heavy tapping. Car stood more than 1 year, being only started for 15 mins everynow and then. Took it to MOT Center passed it without advisories Smile and ye that was most fun months driving a car in my life. Those things arent quick but so much fun, so i bought second one :0
Same shape same year 1.3 monster this time. Both need tlc but they both very sound mechanically. Guus how to post photos?!

Yes a common ailment, fell in love with a hijet....or two. Welcome to the mad house and get some photos posted so we can all see and learn what made you ill but I fear it's too late for most of us on here. We already have the bug!

So at the mom i have a slight problem as in 1.3 one ive got newer engine in. Only find out when i went to look at the car. Previous owner cooked genuine one so they bought 1.3 and fitted it in last year. Sticker says S12 will try to do a photo later for You guys. But i think even if Ill give shops my reg plate they wont necessarily will have part for my car. I need auxiliary belt for now, coz this one is whiny a lil bit. But i need to tell You guys, what a difference driving one minute a 1.0 and then 1.3 one i felt faster than my 3.0 TD Merc Very Happy im in UK close to Nottingham



it wasnt taht hard Very Happy

Two nice clean looking vans there, both low mileage with 1.0 very clean MOT history and 1.3 not that bad either. Well done, and the 1.0 with bull bars as well! No I'm not envious.....much!

Works are being done very slowly, due to being constantly busy with other stuff. But hey im doind it all and satisfaction is great!
LIGHTS!!!!:
When i bought the van, being honest with You guys i didnt took it any further than my city lights goes for like 3-4 months, and i havent been driving it at night at all as im working everyday from 6pm till morning hours.
Its was this one day when i went to visit my friend 15 miles away from my location to small village, spent couple of hours. On my way back home i was terrified, didnt think to do the photo because i was too much focus on grabing any light from reflection moon onto road with many trees above, I COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING!!!!





I used cheap halfords chrome reflective spray paint, let it dry for 2 hours and glue the glass together, manage to smash one headlight but still glued it back together.
Last photo is very shitty i need to admit, but You need to belive me guys they look and work like new!!!!!!

NEXT PROBLEM. NOISE!!!
I know that many of You got the same impression, van is lovely on low speeds lets say till 35-40, but past that weve got almost like plane noise inside. Ive got handsfree but to talk while driving the van i needed to actually stop. Also my 4 previous cars were Mercedes so i really like that noise cancelation.


from left to right: Professional sound deadening matts, used for seats and that wall, carpet insulation 1,6mm thick, naked frame


every inch of the floor and front wall, covered with carpet insulation


finished, old genuine carpet in, with previous owner fancy DIY matts Very Happy
also You can see nice hole for radio which i cut out with dremel, i managed to buy very short (literally short, so it nicely fits in tight hole which not supouse to have radio) new radio unit, with no cd, but with bluetooth, so ill be slowly building audio system as well

Figured out why not to do back !?!?!?



Now back is fully covered in insulation, im waiting for delivery of nice heavy duty industrial carpet to lay it down in the back so it could be usable

to glue carpet insulation to the van i used ScrewFix nononsense spray glue, top stuff for 3,5£!!!
