    I got the correct heat shrink yesterday and was able to finish the harness.

    Installing it was a bit of a mission, which required child labor. The area behind the dash board is completely filled up and it took us the best of 45 minutes to route it properly.

    Terminated on the fuse box. If you look carefully you'll see the negative wire just behind the red one. I am planning on drawing a negative wire to the bolt holding the bracket in position and distributing from there.

    Yesterday's mod/addition.

    I got my tralies back from powder coating yesterday. I bought it RAW so that I can make some small changes to it - i.e lights and power outlets.

    Uys just out of interest. What are you going to do when going on holiday. Canvas cover or canopy?

    Canvas cover with a trailer.

    I am not sure how to fix the cover though.....

    The tralies are not resting on the load bin - they are supported on six feet inside the load bin, four of which are bolted to the original tie down points. Between the tralies and the load bin there is a 12mm foam strip. So I am thinking of slipping an ali strip in there into which the canvas cover can slide.

    Regarding the issue of small feet and slipout.... I had to fix this, obviously!

    I did not want to weld on it, because of the electronics. SO I cut the round bar and threaded it. Then used a longnut to extend it. The bottom part is securely screwed into the nut with Locktite and the top part is locked with a locknut. So now the problem is sorted and as an added bonus I can adjust the angle of my dangle.

    Uys,

    Do you need to remove the plate for maintenance activities - draining oil? Or is there a cut out for accessing the sump plug.

    Regards

    No. Just the inspection cover. Two bolts and a small plate.

    Oom Chrito - my sliders is juis "oop" sodat hulle kan drein. Ons e-coat hulle aan die binekant ook om roes te voorkom.
