The notes sent by email for 20 Oct are below.  The unbold text = redundant, dealt-with or irrelevant items.

The notes indicate lack of knowledge as to what goes on  these days when buying a special-purpose car.


 1   SATNAV   don't like ringmarks on windows - would like satnav built in - if impossible, need a legal flat surface on which to stick the holder

2   PARROT  to explain which Parrot phone system is best for the car and what it looks like on dashboard 

                 have looked at                http://www.parrot.com/uk/products/hands-free-car-kits/

                 I note the music aspects and ask re CD disc server kits and where one might be fitted

                 If we choose a CD kit, will need the simplest Parrot kit

3   HANDLE   fit fold-flat handle above front passenger window

4   FOOTREST fit footrest to left of foot-brake if none there


5   STRAPPING

5a   will bring new heavy-weight wheelchair and Daren has the details

5b   will also bring                small wheelchair in case it's used in the car

5c                                          light-weight shopping trolley

5d   the emphasis on strapping these items is  -  -  - as little bending when securing the items -  a plastic stool will also be brought

5e                                           will the securing-to-item fixings be clip-on rather than buckles?

                                                if clip-on, how is the paintwork protected?

5f    will bring portaloo - to consider strapping and screen system 

5g   what compartments are fittable?  say for shopping, a few tools, carer emergency kit etc 

                                                  on the lines of those boot-compartment trays/cloth-units





6     OTHER  FITMENTS

6a  knob to fit on steering wheel

6b  drinks holders - very important for wife

                  our Ford Transit motorhome has a dashboard fold-down for drinks - anything similar available?

 

as previously sent  without numbers

7  TOW-BAR - some available are detachable and lowslung fitting but I can imagine impossible on certain cars 

5f  above  will bring portaloo - to consider strapping and screen system 

8  5g above  OTHER FITMENTS  - what compartments are fittable?  say for shopping, a few tools, carer emergency kit etc 

9   SPARE WHEEL  - presume car has a spare wheel underneath  - just rid ourselves of a smart car - what a system! 

10  A-FRAME -   presume can fit all the kit for A frame use behind motorhome 

11  WARRANTY - keen on warranty extension - now or can it be started after 2 yrs has run? 

2  above  -  fit parrot or suitable phone system
