    Just picked up one of the trays from Carl last night & they are an awesome unit, I'm glad I got in quick before they disappeared.

    Nice looking vehicle Carl and thanks for the fitment advice very much appreciated. Brilliant job mate.

    As Optima Batteries are all AGM batteries they do require specialized charging conditions. AGM batteries require 14.4v to charge correctly and a standard car alternator will only output 13.6v.

    This is from Optimas website. Is this why the red arc charger fitting is needed?

    Hi Coastie,

    I'm pretty sure that the D2 puts out over 14V by itself; I've fitted a DC-DC charger to maximise the charge in my AUX battery, I don't think it's a necessity however.

    My starter battery has been fine (red top), and it's been fitted for over four months.

    Cheers, Carl

    Disco 2s will easily charge the Yellow Optima - with the DC-DC charger fitted you will actually increase time taken to charge the aux battery as the unit reduces the current fed to the aux.

    Wink Engine Bay Passenger side tray

    Carl


    How are you going with a universal tray/Box double skinned against exhaust heat to mount a compressor and catch can. Even a side basket to warm food in foil trays?


    What about a spare battery/ Inverter/ airpump box to fit the rear side box location?

    Hi Brad,

    Looks like you've got a wish list

    I've been meaning to send you a photo of what I've come up with (it's a little rough at the moment). It's is a little plate that mounts on the passenger side of the firewall and provides a flat surface to mount whatever you like; I'd suggest it's not strong enough for a battery, but for a catch can or compressor it would work great. It doesn't have a heat shield, and I'm not sure adding anything there would really guard against the heat the turbo generates, I suspect that eventually heat would soak anything in that location. I can be convinced otherwise about the heat shield though

    I'll post a photo up tomorrow when it's light.

    Cheers, Carl

    Take off the horn and it's mount. Make a bracket to bolt to the firewall that provides a flat surface for a box to mount on. The front of the box can bolt down with tabs to other existing holes in the inner guard. I knocked one up that's still in progress, holds catch can on outside, manifold for breathers, compressor and solenoid for air free spool for winch.

    Hi Carl,

    I would like one of the battery trays if you still have any left. I will also send you a PM with details for postage.

    Cheers,
