    Modifications - and so it begins!

    Just thought I might start a little thread on mods. Two simple ones to begin with, after more off road suitable rubber.

    1. Scanguage 2
    2. Addition of a secondary fuse block that will be used for accessories eg driving lights, Shuroo, roof lights on the roof rack and so on.

    Cheers

    Nice, I'm interested to see what type of performance mods will become available.

    LED Lightbar

    Got the light bar in now to tidy up the loose ends! Looks good though.

    I used a 40 inch lightbar, can't recall the brand. However if I was doing it again I would use an Aurora single row 40 inch bar. Mounting it is tricky, the Aurora bar is thinner than mine and would give you more mounting options. It will take some thought though!

    If you are contemplating something similar here is how. Using the RH headlamp for the high beam source.
    1. Remove the front grille. A long handle screwdriver comes in handy to help release the tabs approaching it from inside the grille whilst pulling from the outside. It is fiddly so be careful and patient. Instructions are in the owners manual.
    2. Empty the front washer bottle.
    3. Undo the bolts holding the washer bottle one on the top, one in front behind the grille, you will spot it once you have the grille removed.
    4. Lift the washer bottle out of the way, now you have easy access to the wires behind the headlamp.
    5. Gently tease the wires apart and select the blue wire with the green stripe.
    6. Using a scotchlock (wire joiner) connect a wire from the blue/ green wire to the relay as the switch wire. Wire the relay to the lightbar and power source etc.
    Put it all back together.

    Good luck here is what it looks like on high beam. It is really bright! When I get a chance I will post some photos with it on an off in the outback.

    Some shots of the lights - high beam on - no light bar and with the high beam and light bar both on. Easy to tell which is which! Photos take with my iPhone. With the light bar on more lateral infill, greater distance and much whiter. To gain more distance I will need to angle the light upwards a little more. I was on top of a crest at the time so the road drops away about 300m ahead.

    Grille Mesh - Added protection.

    Name:  IMG_0763.jpg
Views: 1840

    One of the things about travelling around Oz is the number of animals and dirt roads we have in abundance. The RRS swallowed a wayward parrot the other day so that got me thinking I need to protect the front end from more little creatures and flying stones etc. So mesh is now applied to all front orifices. I also applied mesh to the rear of the front grille when I had it off to wire up the light bar.

    Cheers

    Rear Body panels and Diffusers

    Covering empty spaces behind the rear wheel arches has the potential to reduce drag, increase downforce. The RRS already has a number of body panels that smooth the underbody airflow but behind the rear wheels to the rear bumper is less than optimal.

    Currently trialling a prototype underbody panel and a future modified rear diffuser - currently under construction. Prototype is made of 2mm aluminium and the future panels will be a carbon fibre/kevlar composite. I will be watching the fuel consumption carefully over the next few weeks to see if there are any discernible changes. Seems to have improved to 7L/100kms around the city at the moment. However, the main reason for this was to protect the rear electronics when off road. Panels can be easily removed as they use existing mounting points.
