Plenty around here....take a look at my gallery.

Yes all done by myself. The dashboard suffered terribly by the means of verbal abuse. Might affect my mpg later on in life. Who knows!??

Messy... Just in case anybody wonders what it looks like behind. A lot of cleaning and sorting happened before putting the dash back in!!

I don't always remember to take pictures.

Is that some sort of artificial velvet ? To go to the trouble of covering things like air vents it must be very thin and malleable.

Like the speakers especially the tweeter in the door they must be firing right into your side though, have you done anything with the speaker wiring, what amp is it?

Well it's actually charcoal suede. Not as Mouldable as you may think. Just patience. Yes I've upgraded all the speaker wiring throughout and it's just a standard 4ch amplifier. The speakers in the door are never felt as the ones in the rear always out power them. It's amazing when all the doors are open and it's on. Really does give of good clarity.

It's been a project for many years. Which I have always used on a daily basis.

Re: Scott7763725272's VERY unique Doblo

Hi Scott7763725272,
Could you tell me how you get the panel off behind air con, temp, air direction knobs?
I have removed the cover around gear stick and undone 2 screws at bottom. The panel hinges up slightly.
Are the rest on press studs or do I have to pull out the air vent direction nozzle?

Thanks in advance. K

take out vents carefully, screws behind them, also have you removed radio and cover?

Lightbulb Re: Scott7763725272's VERY unique Doblo (UPDATED 2016)

Hello All.

Here i am in 2016, bringing updates.

2003 Fiat Doblo 1.9JTD SX (Original Engine & Turbo) 160k

Original Owner From New Purchased in 2003 for£5459.00

Estimated (within 1000ish) £40,000 spend in vehicle life.

Its been Everything. Literatly, and everywhere. With extreme care.

Latest jobs since last MOT (only done 10miles in past 3years) but styill mot it to keep it alive.

New bearings all round.
New brakes all round inc misc pipes on rear axle.
New leaf springs
New Clutch
New DMF
New Oil throughout inc brakes and Power steering.
New antifreeze inc superflush (5 times flush)
New brake calipers front
New brake drum master cylinders rear
New Drivesahafts Front L&R
New Interior Trim out
New timing Belt
New Water Pump
New Tensioner
Alterantor Repair (to 150A now)
New rear LEft spring bushes and Hangers.
New brake caliper carriers
New hubs front
New Dash Battery monitors

All genuine original part - like for like.

TO DO:

Gearbox final drive rebuild restore fix
Fit main and earth battery power wire to rear underneath vehicle
Find NEw wheels. (cracked on studs)
Try final trim vehicle
clean up wires
finish trailer conversion and fit towbar (ive got another van like for a trailer!!!!!) THIS IS NOT A JOKE
change rear sound system into a wall (fixed)
Fit new lesuire batterys and re wire.....
maybe just maybe, make it dobly digital 5.1 compatible.

THAT'S ANOTHER STORY FOR ANOtHER YEAR SORRY

I have probably missed a hell of alot, im sure i have.

there is only one major thing whcih i can not seem to rectifiy, the interior lining above the cab driver no matter how its fixed, rattles loose. !!!! so its not in there.

Vehicle is dry warmed stored.

Why do i do this? IT WAS MY FIRST CAR?

Visual Aids. Not hoovered, not altertered to gain 'likes'

Would have to be seen in real life. no picture can do this justice. this van has become as crazy as me, and im klnown very well for both.

i Wish you all the best for the rest of your time on this planet, heres my doblo legacy. im known for trying, and the things ive tried and done just because of owning this FIAT VAN is just insane.

I'm incredibly lucky. Doblo Dedication.
