  • When I got my tinting done I was told not to put suction cups on it.

    So when we drove to Sydney and there's nothing to see out the window and the movies are on, to darken the cabin I cut a layer of foam and put it between the window and window sox.

    Perhaps some bungee/shock cord and foam might work for the cargo area?

    • We got to check out Gramps Solar Screen today at the Moonta GTG.
      Very good finish and fit. Quality Aussie made product, even came with a spare suction mount and Denier stowage bag.
      Think you need the other two screens Dan to complete the UFO look.
      Cheers

      • I wasn't going to get any more but when I just told the missus about the UFO look, she admitted that she wants the other side window screen. Now to get her to pay for it because it's something she wants. Ha haaaa

        • I installed my interior LED's today. Very happy with the result as they are a nice white light.

          The online store I used is 'LED LAD'. I probably paid a bit more but everything came packaged together and the after sales support has been excellent. Because AusPost returned my package to him for whatever reason, he resent it with 2 extra LED's for my 'vanity' lights (don't think I have those). Today he sent a 3rd email asking if everything was OK. I would recommend this seller to anyone.

          • Finally swapped over the fan resistor today. Until now the fan was either running flat out or off. Thanks to AMTS for sourcing a good price for me. The right shows the old resistor and the broken solder join. You can see the 2 pieces that were joined inside the circle. The left shows a nice shiny new one. Click image for larger version

            • Next couple of jobs are diff breathers and finish off the slide for my esky. If all goes well I should be able to store the esky on the slide with dry food in large containers on a shelf above it. That will sit next to the drawer and fridge/freezer. Also thinking about fitting a winch cradle to the existing sovereign bar and install a 9500lb winch (not sure what brand). I can always change to a steel bar at a later date if I need to.

              • Spent a couple of hours this afternoon on my storage idea for the esky. Since I don't want to buy a 2nd fridge due to the lack of use it would get, I wanted to make use of my 80L Techni ice esky. So far I've got the frame and the slide made up. I use steel for this job just for something different, wish I hadn't because steel obviously isn't my thing. Give me timber any day.Click image for larger version

                  • Thanks Smithy.Yeah, everything is screwed together at the moment because my welding is worse than I thought. I want to cover the whole thing with checker plate eventually for a different look, so all the screws will come out and be replaced with some decent rivets.

                    • Cool. I look forward to seeing how out comes together.

                      • I quickly made a couple of alterations this afternoon. The first was moving my airbag valves from the rear bumper. Now instead of having the 2 valves, I have just the one. I used a T piece to connect both airlines into the 1 valve. Thanks to AJ120 for the idea. That left me with 2 holes in the bumper which had to be covered up. So I moved my round trailer plug up to cover the hole on the left. The other hole can just stay there and remind me to get my act together and order an AJ rear bar as soon as they are available. It's a good excuse to justify the purchase to the missus. 1.Click image for larger version

                        • Hi Gramps
                          Nice progress with the rear storage and esky slide.
                          Interested to hear your point of view on the equalised air bag valve set up.
                          Cheers

                            I was thinking about doing this as well, thus making it easier to adjust so you can sort that out as well.

                            Gee your a great bloke Gramps!

                            • Troy,
                              So far so good (only been a day). At least now I can safely say both airbags will have the same psi.

                              Adam,
                              Have you heard of sleep???? What's the go with replying at 2:30am? Lol
                              If that green sticker on your back window is what you drink, I'm gonna die of thirst. I let my 12 yr old drill out the rear bumper yesterday for the trailer plug, do you trust him to do yours as well?

                              Once the rear storage is finished and ready for the trip west in a couple of months, I'll get started with the extended breathers. I was hoping to get Iantz's expert help in ticking this one off the list.

This was a great idea because mounting doesn't involve drilling or adhesives. It's just a 2 second operation that involves sticking it between the silver panel and the dash surround. Once trimmed and shaped, it was painted and put in place. It's been there for a week now and hasn't moved one bit.
                                Thanks for this! awesome idea, also used another bracket up the other way on the drivers side vent for external speaker.
