Even Google can't help me...great for a Mk2, but nothing for a Mk1 :mad:

I need to know the weight so I can check if my ramps are rated high enough to take the weight, as I need to get under it and do some rust treatment.

Can anyone help please?

Fantastic. Thanks for that.

Means that my 2 tonne rated wheel ramps should be OK.
My van has a double bench seat in the back and that's it. It's not even plylined so I can't imagine it being over 2 tonnes.

Your 2-tonne ramps are more than fine. You also use them in pairs, so each one takes half the front axle weight, and the rear wheels still on the ground take the rear axle weight (each ramp takes 1/4 of the vehicle weight - not exactly, since the front is heavier, but you get the idea)

Happy rust-proofing!

LOL No worries - it's good you're thinking about weights and ratings before getting underneath: many people just don't think, and a few of those pay dearly.
