    Hi All,

    I am viewing a 1993 670 tomorrow and may buy it!

    The interior has been chaged by the previous owner. To be honest he has made a bad job of it looking from the pics. He has taken out the table and one of the 2 seaters in the middle of the van and made some small other small changes.

    Is it possible to get parts for the inside of Hymers?

    Any advice would be welcome.

    thanks

    Kevin

    Extremely unlikely especially a van of that age

    What a shame it is not original...

    I hope it is a good price...

    I have a 1987 Hymer 660 and am always looking out for second hand spares... rarer than hen's teeth... :Sad:

    There are hundreds of Hymer parts on Ebay - 5 or 6 pages today alone. Mostly new, some used. :thumb:

    Hymer Purchase

    Hi
    If the inside is as bad as you suggest then it might just be worth checking out if
    the mechanicals and electricals have been similiarly treated.:Sad:.

    The price should reflect that it's been butchered inside and as already said, what else has been 'improved' ... ?

    There are plenty of good ones out there .. frankly, I'd walk away ..

    Hi just to give you an idea on costs to replace the entire inside -new boards,cupboards,cussions etc but still using hob fridge and heater etc -about 2k plus 3 weeks labor :Eek!: This should reflect on the price you pay :thumb:

    On the upside you can make it to suit yourselves, most van have something we would like to change, here's your chance.

    As long as its the right money go for it:Smile:

    On the ebay front you can search other countries to as all over the world, JJ is in Portugal to start with although not selling ought they are everywhere

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your replies.:Smile:

    I bought the 670 on Sunday last! What a day. I brought a very good mechanic with me and checked out engine and all the electrics. Glad to say that they were A1.

    The inside was'nt as bad as i had feared. I will post some pics tomorrow.

    The previous owner whom i did not meet as he is quite ill had put down a wooden floor. Looks nasty.
    He also took out the bed at the rear and removed a 2 seater behind the drivers seat.

    I plam to bring it back to the orginal set up inside. Need to get a good carpenter to sort out bed etc

    All the cupboards, fridge, oven, boiler are working fine.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Kevin
