hi all,
its been a very long time since I visited my build thread. id actually forgotten about it..

but since the last time I visited the thread I have done the following mods..

dual cab cut
tray
turbo kit
top mount cooler
fresh rebuilt gu pump 11mm from ufi
bonnet scoop
gu airbox and also a snorkle
egt gauge
oil pressure gauge
new cd player and speakers

I will put pictures up as soon as I can figure out how to get images of my android phone to my computer..

things to come are

full respray in factory white, (xmas time I hope)
bulbar and rails painted black as im not a fan of the colour coded look
and also paint the tray in black or hammer tone grey...

also looking at new injectors and a good tune as im hoping to reach aout the 130kw mark at the wheels...

use a usb cable, set the mode on the phone to usb mode rather than "just charge" it'll pop up just like a normal usb stick.. :)

whats the length of the tray, exactly what i want to do to mine for same reason with the dogs!!

The tray is 1500 long 1900 wide its about 300mm past chassis rail end at the back. Plenty of room if u dont have a huge dog crate. Otherwise its bit tight...
