    Hey all. I noticed companies like ionics do stainless steel van ports that you fit onto panel and they basically allow you to run your system with the van locked up, which is important to me as I will carrying a couple of grands worth of other kit on my van as will be seconding as a mobile mechanic. Ive looked through most online equipment suppliers but cant find anything, the ionic ones come in at £80-£85, which I dont think is bad TBH, but wondered if anyone either knows anywhere else I can buy them perhaps cheaper? Thanks

    Get some aluminium, easy to drill/mold and make your own to your own spec (fitting etc), i mounted mine under rear bumper to avoid cutting into panel.

    So did you have to cut holes in the floor instead?

    drilled yes, only 2 x19mm holes (outside diameter of 1/2 inch hose).

    my filter system is in the garage, so nothing required in that respect.

    My Citroen dispatch already had some kind of drain hole next to the near side rear door, not sure if they all have this but it worked a treat for me.
