      Thanks Theo,
      I am now conflicted - do I fit an upgraded gas locker - using part of the cupboard under the sink or do I use the same space to fit my diesel space heater?

      How is progress fitting the pod to the DFSK? I am thinking - if / when I want to go from the Daihatsu to the DFSK I may swap over the rear decks. Fit the bigger DFSK deck to the Daihatsu to sell it and fit the smaller Daihatsu deck to the DFSK chassis, which will mean no mods to the pod!
      Hopefully that is a year or more away - although at the moment I have to find a replacement radiator for the Daihatsu - I thought I had one really cheap but it has fallen through!

        Jon - sorry I was away all weekend and out all of today so only just seen this. If my aged brain remembers tomorrow I'll measure up my R20.

          Jon - the door on the R20 is complicated by the fact it goes into the bumper but the internal surface is flat and measures 400 (deep) by 330 (wide), fitting into a 414 x 344 hole.

            BrianTheSnail Thank you - as I said it is a question of what do I do with the space?
            1. Get creative and we have a "modern" separate gas locker with the bonus we will no longer be locked into Camping Gaz. And I put the diesel heater near the front under the bunks.
            or
            2. I could install the diesel heater in that cupboard.

            At the moment all is "frozen" until I have sorted my radiator problem - finding a new one has become problematic - the Italian firm cancelled saying the listing was a computer error - someone on the Daihatsu owners fb group says with a bit of mod I can fit a Honda Civic Radiator which is also an upgrade.

              Find a radiatpr specialist who will look at your radiator and decide if it can be repaired, recored or suggest a similar one. Twolitre may be able to suggest something.

                All things going well with the modification.
                Will post soon some pics.
                Swapping the flat decks seems to be the best when you have to buy another vehicle.

                  Thanks Peter, - the Daihatsu is plastic header bottom and frame and ally core - as it is holding with Rad Weld - so I still have wheels I am keeping it in until replacement - the Civic idea seems to be right so I will give it a go. the pipe ports are correct size 32mm so will just need some of the silicon pipes used in kit cars etc.
