    - Awning
    - Under body water tank with pump for an after surf shower.
    - Under body protection
    - Roof rack mounting for a shovel, max-trax & possibly an axe.

    - Better speakers front and back and a head unit with Apple Car play.
    - Front recovery points
    - Rear Locker

    Welcome to the forum, Leon.

    That sounds like a pretty comprehensive list of mods. If you're replacing the spotties, I would just go witht he Supercentre 9" ones. A friend of mine has the light from them is very impressive. IMO the rear recovery points are a waste of time if you have a tow bar. I would just use a recovery hitch in the receiver if you have a bar.

    We will look forward to seeing your updates on this page.

        speaker surrounds

        i just finished fitting some speakers Ive had lying around for a while to the back.
        i have a 3d printer at work so i printed some plastic speaker surrounds for them.
        i think it worked out pretty good, except i found out the one of the old fusion speakers isn't working so its back to the shops for me.

        Old speakers,

        test fitting the new surrounds

        i made it so the front of the speaker is the same distance off the door as the original, so when i get new speakers ill run a ring of foam around them so they seal up with the door card like the originals.

        let me know what you think?

        i could probably make up some more if anyone is interested..
