Looking back from the front:
Its tight, the seats can still bounch. without rubbing.
Image

The front section still needs to be bolted down to sit level.

Well... I guess its time for a big update since I have been off the radar for 2 weeks haha.

In list form:
finished rear of wagon floor idea
rear barrier installed
extra led lighting added
40" led light bar added
arb seat covers
water tank set in place
wiring almost sorted
red arc 1220 installed
immobilizer installed
can now start off key - no switch required
new viynl floor installed
recovery point on rear added
turbo installed

For starts, I got a new turbo installed, overall it works great. a lot more power and actually gets decent fuel economy again:
Image

This is tough to sort out. so let smove onto led lighting

OUtside:
Installed a new 40" led light bar, test shots to follow.
Image

Inside:
new leds inside my RTT. great lighting, even has a switch. haha
Image

Image

no flash:
Image

Image

Rear of wagon:
Image

Just rear door light:
Image

Image

extras:
Image

A little more outside work, finally finished gettig the badges removed...
Image

and a clean side to follow:
Image

Finially got a new floor in. tough install. hard work but worth it.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Moving onto the storage unit now... this took a while to build but houses all my electrical keeping them off the floor, up high and away from under the dash.
keeping most of the factory wiring untouched.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Along the way I had to fabricate a rear barrier for safety reasons:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Some carpet added:

Image

Image

Shot from the back:
Image

Water pump installed:
Image

Air pump on the other side of the water tank:
Image

Almost there... I figure jsut wiring is left now:

I have set everything into a simple box.
Image

A bit of a mess right now. but once the wires are bundled it will look great,
contains:
fuse black
redarc 1220
dakota digital tach box
immobilizer
Image

dakota digital tach box on left, egt on right
Image

under dash before:
Image

after:
Image

Camping??? mud comp??? yes please
Image

A few hours mudding on the weekend, this basically lead to my engine having a valve touch a piston on the way home. luckily it was at idle so no damage, but getting a new head due to cam wear I am worried about. then she will be all new. haha

I have been out for ages. oops.

Alrighty, so an update is due.

Magazine: loaded photos of that tomorrow

mods since last seen:
installed dual auber gauges for egt and boost read outs where the fuel and temp gauge were

Image

Otherwise she remains as is for the most part. have some freetime to sort the gearing out in the future though.

Photo of magazine spread:
Image

A few poser shots from the last trip: I will include a trip report tonight to for a decent read.

Image

Image

And a video from when I took her out to stretch the legs, I know the spare tyre carrier is broken.. back to the drawing board on that one.. material was to weak to handle the corrugations.
