Well yes HID headlight upgrade was a success after working out that they have the positive/negative the wrong way around lol

Dual battery system is 3/4 done just waiting to get a 100ah or 120ah agm deep cycle battery. Just thinking that $340 for turbo battery is a little expensive.

Red arc isolator-eBay $88
Projector battery tray-$18
Projector battery mounts-$10
5m of 10mm cabel-$45
5m of conduit-$12.50
2 fuses bolt on in line $40

Red arc 100ah isolatorClick to view larger picture

Battery tray not installed but in rough place behind the back seat on passenger side Click to view larger picture

Cabel entering from chassis railClick to view larger picture

Where cabel enters into the cabClick to view larger picture

So it's been a while since I have been on here. As we were going though a rough patch (no money) Morton hasn't got any attention. But after getting his first beach run under the belt and money starting to roll in the modification bug is raring it's ugly head. [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES][GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]
Quick install today cigarett plug and dual USB blug behind the center console.
This morning at 5am while I couldn't sleep eBay got a thrashing.
2 10w lights ordered for my reverse
2 digital volt meters
I can't remember what else I ordered ha ha

A mate came around today and got talking and I said I wanted som slider/steps glxr style he said too easy so in a couple weeks might see what we can knock up.
