    Got a bit more work done, Middle storage section. Part way there. still need to finish cutting plywood.

    I have ordered a set of pull rings and locks for the doors to finish the storage up next weekend.

    In for paint:


    Looking back from the front:
    Its tight, the seats can still bounch. without rubbing.


    The front section still needs to be bolted down to sit level.

    Well... I guess its time for a big update since I have been off the radar for 2 weeks haha.

    In list form:
    finished rear of wagon floor idea
    rear barrier installed
    extra led lighting added
    40" led light bar added
    arb seat covers
    water tank set in place
    wiring almost sorted
    red arc 1220 installed
    immobilizer installed
    can now start off key - no switch required
    new viynl floor installed
    recovery point on rear added
    turbo installed

    For starts, I got a new turbo installed, overall it works great. a lot more power and actually gets decent fuel economy again:


    This is tough to sort out. so let smove onto led lighting

    OUtside:
    Installed a new 40" led light bar, test shots to follow.


    Inside:
    new leds inside my RTT. great lighting, even has a switch. haha




    no flash:




    Rear of wagon:


    Just rear door light:




    extras:


    A little more outside work, finally finished gettig the badges removed...


    and a clean side to follow:


    Finially got a new floor in. tough install. hard work but worth it.










    Moving onto the storage unit now... this took a while to build but houses all my electrical keeping them off the floor, up high and away from under the dash.
    keeping most of the factory wiring untouched.









    Along the way I had to fabricate a rear barrier for safety reasons:

    Shot from the back:


    Water pump installed:


    Air pump on the other side of the water tank:


    Almost there... I figure jsut wiring is left now:

    I have set everything into a simple box.


    A bit of a mess right now. but once the wires are bundled it will look great,
    contains:
    fuse black
    redarc 1220
    dakota digital tach box
    immobilizer


    dakota digital tach box on left, egt on right


    under dash before:


    after:


    switch combo:
    contains 4 switches, fuel transfer pump, gauge for main tank, arb compressor switch


    seat covers:


    finished shot:

    A little safety added:


    A shot of her all cleaned up for the photo shoot with 4wd action.

    Camping??? mud comp??? yes please


    A few hours mudding on the weekend, this basically lead to my engine having a valve touch a piston on the way home. luckily it was at idle so no damage, but getting a new head due to cam wear I am worried about. then she will be all new. haha



    Lookin sharp:
