Delica L300 captain/swivel seats x 2 - $100 each obo

Two Delica L300 captain/swivel seats for sale. Both are in excellent condition: no rips, tears or wear. The seats have been in my 1992 L300 for the past 9 years. I just took them out to install a sleeping a platform in the back, and don't plan to install the seats again. All hardware and mounting br...

Newly painted bars - rusting already

All very good to know...thanks! I have no first hand experience with powder coating, so I've taken lots of notes.

Appreciate all of the advice!

Newly painted bars - rusting already

Thanks for the further input! Re. epoxy paint versus powder coating: right, that was initially why I was inclined to go with paint rather than powder coating. I figure it's just a matter of time until I get chips again and I'd rather be able to repair minor damage as it occurs, but I understand that...

Newly painted bars - rusting already

Thank you both for the replies. I really appreciate the possible explanations and the tips for doing the job right. Sounds like my initial reaction was correct...that the initial workmanship was poor, and the follow-up excuse from the mechanic was inadequate. Lesson learned, I suppose. Thanks again ...

Newly painted bars - rusting already

Hi everyone, I've had my Delica L300 for 8 years and the external bars were getting rustier and rustier. It's been on my wish list to get them cleaned up. Last December I decided to splurge and have a Lower Mainland Delica specialist shop (to be fair, I won't specify the name) de-rust/paint them for...

Looking for recommendation for powder coating shop

Apologies if this is a repeat question (or posted in the wrong spot)! I've tried to do my due diligence by searching the site first, but I couldn't find any recent posts on this topic. Can anybody recommend a shop to have my bull bar (and other bars) sandblasted and powder coated? I live in Vancouve...

Delica L300 downtown Vancouver - hello!

Hello everyone! I'm a long-time lurker and first time poster on this forum. I've had my 1992 Delica L300 ("Panzervan") since 2010. I've mostly just kept up on the basic maintenance to keep her running well over the years, but my boyfriend and I are finally in a position to take care of some of the m...
