I don't feel confident drilling metal fenders emoticon I had more courage to do so with the plastic fenders of the T30 exy which can be easily patched-up and taped-up if needed LOL emoticon

All you need is a shed with decent lighting Scot and a few nights with not much sleep emoticon

Jalal, drilling through metal I actually find easier because the pilot hole is more sturdy.

Re: The Black T31


Just installed a 12v LED strip on my side awning. Really impressed by the amount of light it puts off. Got another 2m on order.

Just replaced the rear shocks with Pedders shocks. They are much heavier and the bottom mount is a lot more solid. Plus the upper section cover is steel not plastic like the standard shocks. Still need to find out how they perform.

Re:


Looks good.

Quick q on the LED lighting: is it hooked up to the 12v accessory in the back... does the accessory port still have power if the keys are out of the ignition (like in some VW's)?

Re:


They look to be the same size bore.
Are they a longer shock Todd to allow for the lift or standard length?

Re:


I thought you'd got yourself some awesome camo-painted shocks for a second there! But nope, those are the dirty old ones, haha. I noticed the outside section of the shock is actually shorter than the original? Most piston rods are only as long as the component/cylinder they are in, so does that not mean it will have less travel before compressing to the top? I'm probably just confusing myself :/

Re: The Black T31


One question at a time fellas haha. For the 12v light I ran 6B&S cable through a 50 amp circuit breaker from the battery to the boot.
The shocks have exactly the same travel as original. The top cover is just longer on the originals.
With the shock off Tony you could only get probably 5mm extra travel out of the swing arm anyway. So longer travel shocks is probably not a legitimate option anyway.
