Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

Of the 4 cylinders, #3 is runs the hottest. So it would be your best bet to monitor. The best method is a Pyrometer directly in the gas flow of the exhaust header close to the exhaust port. I run with one/cylinder and it is a great way to keep an eye on the overall engine temp esp. when your going u...

Re: Great Dometic fridge deals!

ARB uses the Danfoss compressor. I managed to find the service manual for it on the "deep" WEB :wink: You can learn a lot from a service manual if you can find one, the choice of parts, how the unit goes together and how well (or badly) the manual is written. I believe Dometic also uses the Danfoss ...

Re: New off-road GPS coming

I’m no fan of the “commercial” GPS solutions. I’ve rolled my own with 3’rd party navigation software packages that run on OSX or Windows. Then build a hardware platform around the software to my liking. This gives you the flexibility on the the size of the display, computer, and storage needed. Abov...

Re: Custom door panels

Yup SSkin is where I'd go. Yes your right!! You need to double up on
the thickness, 1/2" is not sufficient. Their spray adhesive is really
good to do that -- stack em two high. It's expensive stuff though.

Re: Custom door panels

I have the malamine foam in the read doors of the 710K, I have found that
the cavity on the front doors is a wee bit tight for the foam. But it's a real
good idea to use it where you can as you suggest.

Re: Custom door panels

As far as noise goes, I "soundproof" my doors. First step in the process is to remove the goo inside the door itself, then I apply a vibration damper, followed by a layer of mass loaded vinyl. You have to cut away some of this to provide a space for the door handle cup. When it comes time to insert ...

Custom door panels

The door panels on my 712 project truck were totally messed up. Looked around for replacements, most of the metal replacement panels are cut from Aluminum Diamond plate which I don't like. Found a source for several different textured Aluminum and SS from http://xpressmetals.com/ out of upper state ...

Re: Expedition Imports

I was up there a few weeks ago and all was cool. Best bet is open a "Support Ticket" if you have a open question.

Otherwise place your order and the stuff will just show up :D

Re: Pinz symbol

My turn to strip and refinish the Symbols. No luck with TSP, all I could find locally was TSP powder, mixed that over 10X the recommend dosage and no luck, even put the symbols in that broth over the coleman -- just would not cut into that tough paint. Went back to Home Depot and bought some JASCO P...

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

First phase of restoration done. Just completed a face lift. Could not source a Drivers door replacement soon enough, ended up playing tin knocker. Cut rust out, fabricate replacement panel via the British tin knocker way -- angle iron hammer and planising. Came out far better than I expected. I rat...
