Re: Porsche Off -- A Cayenne Offroad Project

For a change I remembered to catch a few seconds footage while offroad. not the sort of off-roading we get to do often in NZ
its short & sweet but amazing I got any footage. & after this trip I didn't even have to wash the truck..

Re: Volvo C304 4x4 Build/Restoration - WR002

are you getting a hard brake pedal? After a long project build I spent ages chasing a brake issue only to find I had my rear calipers on the wrong side which moved the bleed nipple to the bottom and wouldn't get the air out of the caliper. Worth a look. Check all you nipples are high! I am getting ...

So the roof rack is all sorted, Lights fitted & Wired. Took a slight diversion on the way home today, Hilux before me came out with a smashed rear window & dented tailgate. Porsche came out unscathed. https://i.postimg.cc/7ZvFJWV4/Porsche-Cayenne-roof-tray.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/nhv64GRD/P...

Re: Porsche Off -- A Cayenne Offroad Project

Wire the isolater into the low amp side of the control box. The low amp side has a perminate pos that feeds the forward reverse switches. Break into that small cable ran switch.

Re: Porsche Off -- A Cayenne Offroad Project

Finished the wiring today, went with a kill switch, from what I could find they should be OK.. I would be a bit more sceptical if on a winch truck. but I also think the failure would be the contacts welding them selfs on rather than no contact.. Anyone else had experience with this type of switch on...

Got a heap done on the winch mount today.. Not pretty but not seen in this case.

Re: Porsche Off -- A Cayenne Offroad Project

what i do know is that if you have a (50mm?) dent in your sill (on a monocoque vehicle) then it is a warrant issue, so you need to protect them somehow. I followed the bmw X5 thread, it was nice work and it was entertaining. And it was novel. Now you have this project, with low range and diff locks...
