hey guys bit of an update with piccies to enjoy

After a 4wd out at glasshouse my volt meter was saying that my alternator wasnt charging, to determine the fault i put the multimeter on the battery it read 12V - ot ow, put positive on the alternator 11.5,- dang here we go new alternator. Being curious and just doing alternators at TAFE i decided to rip it off,
Image
then i had to get it ready for inspection
Image
here is dad removing the housing,after my failed attempts
Image
here is my alternator fully disassembled and ready for inspection for the fault, Upon inspection it was found that one brush had been stuck not giving it full charge, after manipulation and some dry lube ready for assembly time.
Image
Put my alternator back in the car and it was charging at 14V. woohoo saved me precious money.

Here's my new light bar :) rig looks alright after a wash i reckon
Image

I wired in an auxillary fuse box. It is tidy now exscuse it being messy here might get a photo of it cleaned up
Image
I also installed a volt meter
Image
an updated version of the rocker switches

Keep an eye on your front brake pistons and piston rubbers -that mud will tear the crap out of them very quickly letting the mud into corrode the pistons and causing them to seize.

Or just don't do Mud :lol:
