Re: My 80 series :) New exhuast, rear bar and stuff

So I've been messing around with a few things lately, spacing the rear of the bonnet up to see if it made a difference. Initial thoughts are seems to have lowered temps a tiny bit, not much though, sits just below half way of the guage now, as opposed to on it, and the cab seems to be cooler too. So not too bad I guess,

Sills black out, looks alright I guess

Nah, never really did anything with that, haha! Ive always been pretty certain i want to chop the back end off, so thats as far as the bar went, not too sure how far i want to cut it yet though.

A few photos of the other little bits i've been doing to the old girl over time too...

Image
Replaced the dodgy little battery isolator with a CTEK D250S. Now the 2nd battery gets charge all the time, so i always have cold beers :)

Image
An auxillary fuse box in the cab, gives me 12 slots to add accessories as i see them, currently powers the UHF, incab winch controls, centre console cooler and the rear lights.

Image
8LT centre console waeco, only just a cooler but still handy for keeping drinks cool on long drives

Image
Stainless braided lines all round

Image
And turned it into a fish pond a few months ago :(
