Gets worse before it gets better. Most mods in. Some of the internal wiring and more in the engine and tray. Can start to put back together.

I would do yourself a favour with that compressor, if you can. Mount it on rubber blocks, like shocky rubbers or similar. I have one, and it is loud, and vibrates a lot! Rubber mounts will calm it down a bit.

Thanks. If you zoom in you can just see the rubbers under the mounts. More so to stop the fittings from comming loose. It not that loud but only time it will be running while i am driving is to top up tank and front diff lockers. Short brust only. Rest of the time i be out of the car pumping up tyres or running airtools.

Light at the end of the tunnel. Putting it back together. Bit more wiring, Airbags to go on (All wiring and airlines installed though), Connect airline to front diff locker (Again all wiring and lines installed) Vacuum and steam clean before trims go on. New aerial to go in, Tray to be painted, second glove box to be finished and a few bits to go over and i can give it a test drive. Looking forward to see how it goes on the tracks. Only had for a couple of weeks before i took it of the road. Didn't even take it 4wding prior. Maybe should of.

Bit of movement in the last few days. Know have the air bags fully intalled. As mentioned i brought the Boss Airbags which came as a kit and expected to fit like a glove. Had a few dramas with that thou. Passenger side bracket hit the shocker and would of destroy it in no time. Cut around bracket to be able to install but when i pumped air into them the shocker moved closer and had the same problem. Also if i was to go over any think this would have cause the same problem. Ended up cutting part of the bracket that hung over and re drilling new hole to fix. Drivers side was another drama as it was touching the spring. Ended up cutting the top bracket where the bolts go though to bring it away from the spring. Too much work had been done running all the lines inside and out to give up. So much for kits. Have had similar problem with most of the mods and is dragging this re build out. But getting there and can't wait to get on the road.

This was never on the list but once seeing some of you guys doing it i thought it made sence and would be a good spot for my new fuse box. Takes longer then i thought. Still need to build fuse box and opening plus carpet and the work out how best to hinge. But few photos so far.
