Bought ht pattern for if I ever go 13 inch rims and re indexed on the mill to fj pattern as the tyres are excellent and the fx hubcaps are mint.

With the old one, are you keeping it or tossing it. I'm sure a caravan enthusiast might like an original. I like the colour of the rim. Would look nice with Breton blue on a fe.

So the final verdict for anyone contemplaiting doing a brake conversion worth every cent.
Wow what a difference took a few stops to settle in and you can overide the controller to add more force its so smooth pulling up now not unsettled at all.

I have found 2 little problems diff noise thru the body as i have lowering blocks in the rear and no insulator just alloy onto the spring so will get re set springs and  do it properly.
I also need to tow with the sway bars to settle it down at speed and may fit a set of air shocks to bring the back up a little it sits very well on the road tho.

The slotted bars with the big loop are simple and easy. Slots are 90 degrees. The bars will make a huge difference. You will never go back to anything else after having decent electric brakes. I got new 1 inch lowered rear springs for the taxi at "industrial springs" in radelaide. Looks so nice the new spring pack. Pete these are ideal. Push the loop end down from top at equal angle to rear bumper, then they swing around onto the bracket. When heavily loaded you use 2 but a van like yours probably 1. U move the caravan bracket end to adjust the leverage. Simple.
