battery?

Postby sshytransit » Thu May 10, 2018 10:56 am

I haven't got a clue which battery to put in my 1980 MK2 dormobile/bus (twin wheel, 2l pinto, petrol)

It has a crappy one that the geezer i bought it from put in, before I started restoring it so I expect it's no use as a guide. I'm going to put in a leisure battery too becasue it has space for a second under the bonnet.

I've done most of the work and am currently respraying and doing electrics in for camper conversion I've done.

i can post some pics if interested.

any wise or unwise input is welcome.
