Gday Harry the van whent well it handled the rough stuff really well. I did have 2 blinds fall off (front and rear) am going to replace the screws with rivet nuts(can't remember what you call them) and stainless steel screws found the screws could not tighten up letting the blinds move side ways .I do need to replace the entrance door hit a rock so next mod is a set of slides for it. Other than that we are happy with the fan and how it performed.

Dicko

Love the colours of your new topaz.
You have added some great mods, love the strip light.
I have taken my camper up the Holland track late last year and its not easy anymore.
I had fears the Topaz would struggle with rear clearance on that track.
I have plans to fit a rear slider system so would be very intrested in your mods.
I will spend some quality time under mine when I pick it up.
Good to see some WA Topaz owners see you out there.

Enjoy your topaz we love ours.

Made up a mudflap to protect the handbrake adjuster and replaced the led light over the kitchen.

Using 2 holes in the over head locker to mount a bag for putting shopping bags in. No extra holes where made as the bracket was a perfect size for the existing holes.

Hey Dicko,
I've just been looking at the pics of your rig and topaz, it looks the same as mine, but with a bigger growth hanging off its bum.
If I keep watering my Tvan, will it grow into a Topaz like yours??

Dicko have you made any progress with the rear protection. We received our Topaz on the weekend and I had a look under with a view to fitting a rear protection system. Was thinking about fitting a tubebar u-bolted to the rear drag bar and fitted to the second drag bar. The front could be attached to the upper shock mount and chassis. The issues is sorting the connection to the chassis near the shock mount. The rear water tank is behind in that area. What are you thinking so far.

Gday Auscgu sorry for the late reply I'm looking at welding a mount onto the chaise next to the tank then bolting the sliders to that so they can be removed. Once we get home from up north I'll look into it a bit more.

Mine leaked water behind the seals on both front doors. I fixed that problem by removing the seals and squeezing sealant in the whole length of the rubber seal where it pushes onto the metal bodywork.

I also found a leak at the back of the nose section caused by a leaky joint in the bodywork that slopes down to it. The water dripped down the side to the floor and then to the front area. Now that both problems are fixed everything is nice and dry.

I have had similar leaks through RHS front door and from nose cone.
Fixed door by reseating seal so that joint was on bottom and using sealant around perimeter as did Dicko

Still a leak from near bottom of nose cone where it merges onto storage box. Drip runs diagonally across inside roof above fridge coartment, then down side and down into fridge compartment.

How did you manage to fix this bodywork leak on your Topaz ?

Thanks Dicko and Happy Traveller
