    Today my partner went wedding dress shopping with her sister, which meant a day of prado mods for me... yay. I had a few hours, which was ideal for a dual battery install i have been wanting to do for a while now.

    This was stage 1 of the install. Basically just getting the 2nd battery in there, wiring it up, making it look neat and ensure it is all working correctly. For this build i was tossing up whether to have the 2nd battery in the engine bay, or have it in the back. After doing some thinking, and throwing some ideas around, i ended up putting the 2nd battery in the engine bay. I also decided on a basic isolator over a dc - dc set up? Why? Effective, simple set up, and easy to trouble shoot. Plus its a bit nicer on the pocket also. Heres a few pics. Only thing that looks out of place is the small red wire in the background. I don't have any small conduit left. Tomorrows job.

    Stage 2 consists of running 2 anderson plugs to the rear for the fridge, rewiring the factory ciggy socket in the back, and putting in a narva fuse block to keep the wiring tidy. Eventually i would like to also put a solar regulator somewhere near the 2nd battery, and have a 'quick connect' anderson plug for the panel. But at the moment the priority is getting the cabling into the back so i can start running the fridge.

    I continued to play with the 12 volt side of things today. I bought all the stuff needed to get the plugs in the back sorted, however time was against me. So i got to install the narva fuse block instead. I always like the idea of these but never had one. After the fuse block was done i also tidied some other wiring up.

    Hey,

    Prado is coming along nicely.

    I really like the colour of your car, dark green looks smick.
