what did you do WITH your delica today

Postby legionnair » Tue Jan 10, 2012 6:54 pm

I totally different take nothing about repairs, just trip reports, how you use your delica, etc

Example today I loaded the chain saw and lined the back of the delica with a tarp. Grabbed my best bud (wheeler my dog) and went out and got a load of maple and cedar. Filled the delica up to the windows sorry no pics but the weather was great.

Now let's share

The strangest load I've taken is a massive Christmas tree. Unfortunately we stuffed it in stump first and didn't wrap it (we were in a hurry). In case it isn't evident from that statement, the tree acted like one of those chinese finger locks. :-D Luckily there was no damage but it sure took ages to unload.

I've also used the van to haul drywall to the dump in place of my work truck. Unfortunately this left my black curtains covered in white dust. :?

Nice idea for a thread...

Let mine enjoy a day sitting in the sun relaxing and dreaming about the camping trips we will take soon.

It looked so happy just enjoying the day and the cool breeze off the ocean....Lucky Delica

I installed new front and rear speakers. I had to get creative with the rear speaker mounting because I purchased 5.25" and the factory speakers were 6.5". No one had a size chart or application guide for my van. I cut the basket and magnet off the old speaker and used the "mounting ring" from it to sandwich the new speaker to the mount. I used a lid from a margarine container to fill the air gap between the hole and the speaker. Sounds great!! here are some pics:ImageImage

What are the clips for?


The L400's come with non standard wiper mounts , I think it's a nod to the L300 crowd to distract them from the superior cupholderness of the L400s :-D

Read the title and the first description, I thought it would be a great idea to see what people do with there delicas. Doing this would also show why we love them and how diverse a group of people we are.

But again the human brain fails

Yeah I did read the first line but most responses ended up being the same as what the existing thread contains hence merge...or move those responses into the other thread so they stay distinct. Not too complicated and no reason for you to be a drama queen because people made off topic posting from what you envisioned by changing 'to' to 'with'. Also I am sorry to hear that your brain failed.

Ok ... what I did WITH my van ....... I picked up a bunch of 8' and 10' 2x6 from the lumberyard and boy was the L300 ever better for hauling compared to the L400.
I was able to stack an armload of 8 footers between the seats and had to spin the pass seat around and stack e few 10 footers on the seat.
Time for a roof rack.
