98 Series II L400 w/ Crystal Lite :)

Post by psychadelica » Thu Aug 15, 2013 10:57 pm

After 3 years with a funky L300 veggie van I've moved up to this awesome beast! An L400 Series II Super Exceed with Crystal Lite roof. Sooooooo stoked to take this on the next round of BC backroad adventures!! The extra power with these newer models is just amazing too. Importing and servicing done through the great folks at Coombs Country Autos. Can't recommend them enough!! See ya'll out there on the road :)

She's a beauty! Finally someone else with those rims! I can hook you up with a shop in Japan for center caps if you want- I got them for mine after a lot of google translate. :-D

Enjoy it and keep us posted.

Thanks Craig! Might you be able to post a pic of the center caps on? I'm curious as to how they look! How much for a set?

They are called Raguna D-Force rims. After shipping it cam to about $140 for a set of 4. I wish I had gotten 5 now though because some shops get a little rough with them and bend dent them up pretty good with the impact. I used the contact email on this link and ordered from a guy named Tamaki Hayashi from the shop:

The 100mm caps fit perfect.

CREGAN, Nice wheels!
I noticed your ladder. Do you have a pic of it as well? Where did you get it? Cost? I'm looking for one.

Thanks for the pics Craig :-) Stylin' van!!

I also need to figure out the puzzle that is this dealer-supplied "camping kit". I'm under the impression it unfolds and aligns in a fashion that covers your back seats when they're folded down. Has anyone seen one of these before or know where an instruction set might be?

Gen II L400....oh and it has the flares I want!!! And a bed too? (Thats a new one for me, never seen one before) 8-)

Looks like the tubular frame lays across folded seats and then you lay the TETRIS BOARDS to make the bed.

Do the boards have clips or straps to secure them to the frame?

Do the seats have something that secures the frame so it doesn't move around?

Maybe try assembling it on the ground first and get an idea of the fitment.

Hot dam almost makes me wanna trade up my Gen I but I think I'll wait for the D5 to be legal here.

This isn't my thread. I don't want to take away from the awesomeness that is psychadelica's new van. If you want to see mine it is here:

Coombs has pictures of this thing set up so you can check it out. I am sure they had them in the 100's of pictures in the for sale on their website.

That would have been you we ran into at CCA, the day we picked out a Deli of our own, the Dalek. We should connect!
It's not just a van, it's an entire subculture!
