To be honest Turbocab I never did measure it up. I might be mightily disappointed tbh. I will measure it up, but as soon as I feel better and have more room in my single garage (wishful thinking).

I was under the impression that they (d15 and d16) were of the same dimensions, save for a slightly taller deck on the d16 212mm vs 207mm on the d15.

Oh well, I'll find out the hard way eh? Oh and I'll need to do something about that hydro gearbox too.

1.6L is slightly taller which shouldn't be a problem with the T2 bonnets.
You can get cable to hydro conversion kits for EF and DA's, I imagine these will work on the city perfectly fine.
