Difficulty Starting 'on my 93 L300

Hello everyone, My van has been running stellar over the past few years, and I just recently completed a near 4000 K trip covering many places in Ontario. But lately my van has been a bit reluctant to start. When I turn the engine over, I have to give it a bit of throttle once it starts to fire up i...

Wiring up the rear cigarette lighter so it always has power

Thanks for your input guys. I just got back from an epic 3 week trip all over Ontario. Once again, the best campsites were of the non electrical type. I like what you've come up with Steven, and I think that's probably what I'll end up doing. I clicked on that link for the Audew, but it says it's no...

Wiring up the rear cigarette lighter so it always has power

Hello everyone, During these weird times, I find myself with lot's of time on my hands. I've been mostly camping in and around Ontario with a plan to perhaps drive out west at the beginning of August. I've camperized my van and made it so you can plug in hydro if the campsite has that option. But us...

Camper Interior Kit

I don't know of anyone that specifically does camper conversions for L300's. You'd have to sort out finding someone with those skills and see what could be done. I have an Westfalia bed n the back of my van that came out of a WV Bus from the late '70's. I had a retired friend who used to teach const...

Tinted Windows

Hey Alex, I had it done professionally. It was only $300 bucks and the difference is amazing. I bought a used set of curtains when I bought my van seven years ago. But they don't really provide decent privacy, and you can't clean them easily. I wished I had tinted my windows when I bought my van. We...

Tinted Windows

Sometimes I seem to overlook the the simple way of doing things. For example, I was considering how I could replace my old ratty curtains with something fresh & new. I have a bed in the back of my '93 L300, so it's really for privacy more than anything else. Then it hit me, Why not tint the windows?...

Hello

Beauty camper, and excellent advice Growler. I knew the L300 body style continued past 1993, but I was unaware of these specifics. Now I want a 2000 L300, lol. You will love that camper. I almost bought something similar a few years back, but my bid wasn't high enough at the auction. Please post mor...

Air Filter Replacement Part Number

Thanks for the info guys. I ended up getting a Fram oil and air filter. The oil filter was $50 bucks at Crappy Tire!!! I almost puked when I saw the bill. Both filters came to nearly $100 bucks, and then there's the oil on top of that!!! Anyway, I change my air filters about every other oil change. ...

Crystal Lite Roof Rusty Spots

This is an excellent thread, and I've got all the time in the world right now. It's the mechanical ability that's still got me a bit spooked. Perhaps I need to give myself a bit of confidence and just attempt the job. Being organized would be key, lots of documentation with lots of photos, parts in ...

Air Filter Replacement Part Number

Hello all,

Haven't been on here in a while and playing catch up. I want to change my air filter on my '93 Super Exceed L300, but Can't find the part number anywhere. I'm hoping to get something at Part Source or Crappy Tire.

Anyone have a part number for this?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Phil

Crystal Lite Roof Rusty Spots

Hi all, Here's a job I've been meaning to tackle for years. I have rust spots on the roof of my '93 Super Exceed. My regular excuse is that I don't have the time. Well, obviously that's not the case considering the current situation. I don't have the mechanical ability to tear out the roof liner fix...

Bought a Parts Van - Suspect Blown Head Gasket or Cracked Head

Hey cosmo, I wish I could help you with your engine, but I'm mechanically declined at the best if times. Are you considering selling parts off of the van? I'm looking for a new front bumper (the modern version without the bull bar attachment). Mine is rusting and I'd rather replace it than repair it...

1993 L300 Drivers Seat Wanted

Hi Alex, That's a great idea. I'm surprised I didn't come up with that one myself with all of this time on my hands, lol. Probably comparable to what it would cost to have a decent seat shipped from the West Coast. I'm surprised at how worn it is considering the low Kms on my van. Everything else ha...

Hello folks, I hope everyone on here is doing well under the current situation. It's been a while since I've been on here and thought this would be a good distraction as I'm self isolating at home. My Delica continues to work well and I'm hoping I'll be able to use it this summer for some camping tr...
