    CAZ, LEZ and ULEZ in the UK

    We should learn from countries like Japan they let people keep their cars if the car’s muffler is equipped with a DPF (diesel particulate collection filter), to reduce PM and NOx, and pass the exhaust gas test (Japan it is subjected to a 13-mode diesel emission test) Once the DPF is fitted with...

    CAZ, LEZ and ULEZ in the UK

    Classic cars are exempt from all ULEZ charges, according to HMRC, a ‘classic car’ is defined as a car that is older than 15 years with a value of £15,000 or more. This could be another way to get off the hook. However, DVLA only mentioned Historic (classic) vehicles as vehicle that were built or...

    CAZ, LEZ and ULEZ in the UK

    Hi all, It is well known that our beloved LCs are older diesel cars which are relatively polluting, as a rule of thumb, they are expected to fail all emission zones if they are pre-Euro 6 diesels and pre Euro 4 petrols. Is there anyone here considered or have retrofitted with a CVRAS (Clean...

    Rear Seat Repositioning - J71 SWB (HZJ71V)

    I see your point. However, if I am going to start making modifications to make it more comfortable, I probably better increase the leg room too. I think I do not need to touch the folding mechanism to tilt it a few degrees. I just need to lift it, that will create the angle.

    Rear Seat Repositioning - J71 SWB (HZJ71V)

    Thank you for your response Shayne. I think the catch for the two models is the same. The only differences that I can see are the actual bracket, the frame and probably the rear seat cushion support position as can be seen in the picture My Model The Comfortable type model As shown in...

    Rear Seat Repositioning - J71 SWB (HZJ71V)

    I have imported a J71 swb from Japan. This vehicle it is a heavy duty utilitarian that is designed to carry up to 500kg. Therefore, the rear seat has been designed thinking more in having more space to accommodate cargo than in passenger’s comfort. That is why the positioning of the rear seat...

    Hi Tractionman. I don’t think that is the case. In fact the old LC are selling like hot cakes in Japan and there are some that are even more expensive than a brand new Toyota. Fishertibia the only problem of buying from japan yahoo auctions is that you need to be in japan or have a Japanese...

    Land Cruiser LJ70 from the the land of the rising sun

    Many thanks for the info. I have used them and it has work great so far but I thought it may be a place in the UK in case you need something fast. I haven’t had to pay any VAT so far, probably because the things I have ordered have been small (inexpensive) I guess.
