Been a bit quiet on the forums lately so thought I would update my build.
Well basically its finished, got cert and now I am fine tuning it.
I originally had a read mount radiator, worked fine off road but I had troubles keeping her cool on road, the fans pretty much stayed on all the time.
My concern was if I ever lost fans then I am dead in the water as it WILL overheat.
So made the decision to put it back to factory with a radiator up the front.
This had the effect of having to move my Intercooler radiator.
But with some cunning placement of vibration dampeners I found in in my box of bits and some factory holes in the radiator support panel a new home was located.
As far cert went, the new rear brakes and 80 series booster made a huge difference to stopping ability and combined with hi boil race brake fluid it flew thru the brake test on my old std metal brake pads....
Had to add a few things to allow it to pass, needed at least one muffler... So in went a small coby style unit. Also the filer neck of the fuel tank I made needed a scoop to catch any spills when filling and direct it away to under the truck, got cunning with this one and used a CV boot stretched over the neck and a drain hose attached thru it with a gland nut...Cert man said it was unusual but it worked !
Here are a few pictures.
If anyone wants other info of pics of anything just ask, happy to share what I have done.
