The UHF and older style HF Radio fitted in the sunglasses holder had the same setup in the Triton as well, just got to work out where to mount the Auto Tune Antenna yet

Have mounted the heat exchanger under the fan cowl on a bracket above the bash plate, with the pump for it behind the grill on the bonnet support brace, inlet and outlets are in the bumper grill area, post pic later
Canopy should be here this week if it can be found ? strange things happen to things on there way to WA form over east

Hi Slug,
That's an interesting install you have there. I notice the rear view monitor is mounted above the mirror, how do you find that for operation/visibility? Any probs running cables down the A pillar? Where did you pick up the trigger for the camera, up the front or from the rear reversing light?
Regards
Scooby

Slug
What is the heat exchanger and pump for? What are you exchanging heat from and how is a pump required?

That would be a hot water/shower thingy.
If you've got time could you post pics of that please Slug, and what type etc. and how well does it work? looking at that myself.

Cheers.

I was hoping it was some high performance piece of kit but it is just a hot wash unit. Only dirty people wash anyway!

the heat exchanger the bash plate then covers it ( changing that to one that you can call a bash plate)

Image
the pump motor cover to be fitted the green hose fittings are the inlet & outlets for the shower and the 7 pin conector is for the switch to turn the pump off & on

We do a lot of remote 4x4 and over the years some of the trips, Canning Stock Route, Simpson, nearly all of Len Beadell Tracks, victorian and NSW high country SA Tracks and outback QLD

got love the classics, turbo lockers front and rear, 300ltr fuel 100ltr water, extra low range reduction slow as any thing on the highway but great in the bush
