    SAND you get these TV stands from Takealot. Works quite nice if you only want something that is not big or complex. That TV is never used, but we use the music part from Youtube and Spotify everyday so needed something to run this nicely.

    The come up on OnedayOnly freqeuntly for alot cheaper.

    Finished up the first gullwing storage box, just need to sort out the window seal.
    With the recent addition of a 3rd passenger we couldn't remove all the rear seats anymore so played around with ideas.

    We wanted to keep the interior trim panels and the rear seatbelts in place so it took a lot of fine trimming and re-fitting back and forth to get everything to fit nicely. Passenger side should go a lot quicker now.

    Once all said and done we would have opened up a full drawer in the rear storage drawer system we have and our little guy will have his own seat still in place without having mountains of cargo packed around him.

    It seems to work rather well, was a breeze to install.
    basically install it and forget about ur 12v issues.
    Due to the lockdown I haven't been able to test out like I want to though. I think I should have taken the 40amp but it wasn't available at my Outdoor wearhouse the day before lockdown. I'm running 2 x 105amp Discovery Batteries over kill I think but will have my coffee machine and electric blanket running nicely. Ive charged them up on the ctek and then kept myself busy with essential purchasing and everything ran like a dream (I did load the fridge with water bottles and put it on -7) with no charging after that trip I got 97 hours on the with fridge running until I reached 12,1v. I'm happy with that. The solar is now also just plug n play. no Mppt unit required all in-house. I'm using the double unit from high5solar(great unit) think its 200w. Kept batteries in the green with bakkie outside overnight and following day. This was my initial charge after running the batteries to 12,1.

    I see everyone has been keeping busy, stops you from going around the bend with Kockdown.
    I ran around like crazy getting all i could before Lock down.
    I started with my drive way where roots had lifted paving. Replace piping for electric fence and gate swing motor.
    Rebuilt a Robin EH295 engine for EZgo golf cart. Total rebuild, with rings and seals. Some left off cooling plates had to fabricate. SWtill need main crank seal.
    Rebuilt swimming pool pump for a friend still have to install when Lockdown allows.
    Made and installed timer for my 2 geysers, had to work out a relay as both geysers have 3kw elements and timer only rated at 6 amps.
    Waterproofed parapet wall as leakied into bedroom and put streaks down the wall that would not wash off, repainted wall.
    Stripped 3 WV 1600 aircooled beetle engines, rebuilt one only to find plug thread stripped, needs helicoil. Other one has broken crank, third one needs rings and bearings. Will get when Lockdown allows.
    Stripped and rebuilt Robin Eh25 engine. Was swamped with water in everywhere. Honed cylinder, made gaskets running again, just needs some work on carb as wont idle.
    Cleaned dead leaves and date branches off our palm trees, need to extend ladder to do taller trees.
    Havent had time to get bored.

    2. Made steel pole which gate will hang on.
    3. Fitted pole to boundary wall and pinned pole foot in concrete foundation.
    4. Cut existing paving to lower and level it for new bigger entrance.
    Lowered the paving to create even surface at new entrance. (still need to remove the nutec dust covering the paving)

    Added some cement pavers on inside.

    Made and fitted the gate.

    My trailer have a new parking spot.

    Great job. Well done.

    Perhaps it would be thoughtful to either build a small brick step in front of the water meter & tap, or perhaps a metal bracket or cage around the water meter and tap, just as a precaution to protect them from accidentally being hit by the trailer wheel when reversing the trailer into the parking area or out again.
