Had a good reply on the Beddy facebook forum from Julian Bonner who advised the VS column install is not difficult & is going to post some pics soon of how he did it. Even better he is installing a VS dash. Looking forward to hearing how it goes & especially of the clearance between the wheel & instrument housing.

Still looking for info on the Astra/ barina elect steer. The correct unit to look out for is the TRW, not TRE as previously posted.

How good are these Beddys!

Just a request for any information on how to install the VS column. I read somewhere thats its not too hard, however, cannot locate the post. Pic of the column attached.
Also any tips on installing the elect p/steer. Hooter made good mention of it when describing the LS1 conv - I've had similar ideas ever since reading his saga. Is the TLE elec unit the one to go for?
At the rate I'm going I might just be ready for the planned Nov run.

Many thanks Hooter for your detailed description of the LS1 fit & the  great pics.  Your 'how to fix ' problems such as sump on rack, also much appreciated, similarly tips on elect steering. I'm sure all this will save me some costly knock backs by the engineer when it gets looked at next month.

Hi Zeeman,
Any chance of marketing the transit rack & assembly on the BUGA site?
There's lots of interest on the forums & a NZ import seems to be the only (presently) available option.

I would like to attend. Hope it's in NSW somewhere.
The beddy's up for engineering early next year (LS1/ T700 powered) then registered & painted (thinking midnight blue, white roof & white Sunraysias). Cheers,

Hi Hobbit,
Many thanks for your reply. great pics too. You saved me from a serious error involving using an angle grinder as a solution to the problem.

Wondering if it is possible to remove the alloy ignition housing. Can the  pins holding the 2 pieces of the housing be removed or is drilling them out the way to go?

I would like to buy a complete ignition setup if anyone has one for sale. I'm over starting the van each time with a screwdriver in the wiring cap.

Many thanks for the info. Is there any particular model in the  Landrover range I should be looking at?

Wondering also if it's an LS1 you have under the bonnet?
