Re: Max's T30


Interested to see what the difference is in brightness between your standard globes and the HID.
Which kit and colour did you get Max.

Re: Max's T30


i didn't take a before picture but its not hard to chuck the old globes back in and i will do a picture of the old yellow looking lights soon.

Here is a picture of the box they came in. Just got them off ebay for $85 bucks.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

They come from 5000K to 18000K. I got the middle one at 8000K and they are much brighter than stock. As HID's are a defectable item if not standard I got the middle range. I will do what you said and carry the old globes with me. Up in Broome i don't see it being an issue but when I come back to NSW it may be.

Re: Max's T30


I purchased a Tyredog Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) off ebay. I want it for the long rough off road km's I do so that I know if I get a slow leak. That way I will be able to stop and repair the tyre without running the risk of driving on a flat. There are a lot of sandy roads up this way and sometimes its difficult to tell if you have a flat or not.

There are 4 sensors that screw onto each of the valves with a small control unit that has a windscreen mount. I can tell all 4 pressures at the same time and also have the option to see what the tyre temp is too. There is also a function to change the low pressure and high pressure alarms as well as low temp and high temp alarms.

I have only used it around town to get a feel for it and so far I like it. Just waiting for a time to test it out on the dirt. emoticon

Don't forget to have your tyres re-balanced with the extra weight.

I assume the 100% humidity operating spec means they are also waterproof for creek crossings ?

Re: Max's T30


Thats right, 100% waterproof and the sensors are so light the tyres don't need balancing. If you get the internal sensors that also replace your valves they are much heavier and require balancing

Re: Max's T30


So while i await the delivery of my thumper pack dual battery setup, I was searching the forum and became envious of the rear setups that all of you have created. I decided I wanted a fridge slide in the boot.

I started by pulling out the boot tray and unscrewing the two tie down mounts at the back near the seats. This left an exposed metal area but i felt it was too thin to attach hinges too. With some serious thinking and a few beers I decided it could be done if I could reenforce this area.

I made a flat steel bracket that i have attached to the flat surface behind the rear seats. To do this I had to remove the rear seats. Here is a picture just before I attached the bracket.

I then made a fake boot floor out of 16mm MDF. I wanted to use marine ply but the bunnings in broome only had large pieces and they aren't able to cut it down so I had to go with the MDF. The MDF was cut with a jigsaw to the same shape as the plastic boot tray that extends all the way to the rear seats. The MDF then had 4 100mm hinges attached and black marine carpet was applied using glue and staples,

The hinges were then attached to the steel bracket that I installed earlier.

An ARB 60L/78L fridge slide was bolted to the floor and the rear seats put back into place.

And the finished product.

The slide supports me so i am happy that it will support the fridge. I did have to remove child restraints but I won't need those for a few years yet emoticon

Fridge slide cost $330
Fridge tie downs $30
Build materials $150
Total $510
