    1) ... No doubt .... get a ceiling casette or in floor evaporator box from something, I'm sure Rob could recommend something from a Torago.
    2) Yes .... You need the other seats though.
    3) Sure .... How deep are your pockets ............................................... I'm sure you could fit a V12 in there if your pockets were deep enough. I'm pretty sure any problem or issue would disappear if you could throw enough $$$ at it.

    Well the safari lives again new auto and so much more now to the fiddly bits
    1. odd wiring under the bonnet not having owned a S1 before what do these wires do first bulkhead drivers side second A/C passengers side
    2. the gauge to the right of the fuel gauge does it do anything
    3. seats can I rearrange the bus seats to make it into a flat bed wagon for carrying big stuff
    4. investigating the A/C and possibilities of a rear unit
    GEEZE THIS CAR HAS HAD SOME MONEY SPENT ON IT looking through the invoices maybe $5000 a year for 25 years give or take

    Archie,

    I just take mine out when I want to carry a big load. That gives you a bit more headroom behind the front seats too. I didn't get the pins and star washers with my 8 seater config so I just used bolts with short bits of tube over them to bolt front of the the middle row of seats in so they come in and out fairly easily (except for the rotton little 10mm bolts at the back of the middle middle seat.)

    Cheers,

    Ken W

    I purchased a rear a/c unit (Nippon Denso made) from a late model Land Rover Discovery on ebay. (Lots of 4x4, Suv's have them so cheap) Adaptors available to retrofit connectors. It's fits in the side area of a boot as tall & narrow and would be perfect for a Safari. It has a much larger size of evaporator than the modified under dash unit the sedans normally had and more efficiently packaged. Gauge in right relates to engine oil level. Needs some LHM as the indicator substance. Wiring can relate to unused diagnostics or A/c clutch if disconnected. Others in that area that need to be connected include the starter motor, cooling fans and thermostat. I'm still finding the odd unconnected wire yet the car still goes & everything works. One day I'll even label all the haphazardly placed relays😜

    There is a procedure in the Haynes manual to set the oil level gauge up- I've never done one though- I deleted the duplex dipstick tube it works from. If you push the button with the motor running the blow by supposedly pushes the LHM out of it back into the sump, but I haven't experimented with this either.

    It's better to use the dipstick, that way you don't miss the rat nesting in the spare wheel, or the snake camped around the air cleaner...
