Hi Everyone,

As Victoria continues to be in shutdown i have ran out of ideas and projects, and i need some inspiration to keep my mind active.
What has been the best idea/modification that you have made to your 4wd or camper because you couldn't find anything suitable elsewhere? I am after ideas that don't cost a lot and i know you are an ingenious and inventive lot, so any ideas would be great.

Stay safe out there everyone.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life, so make it count!

Have you put a lock box out of sight on the vehicle to carry a spare set of keys in case you missplace yours ??

Prices start from around $15 .?

No good with modern remote keys which detect key fob presence!

Not necessarily you can fit lock box on 200 series cruiser on front right hand side with no effect just as an example..

I have fitted one to my 2017 bt50 on rear drivers side mudguard..works fine..

I keep my spare smart key in the glove box and a conventional dumb key wired underneath out of sight.

Took out the rear seats from my dual cab ute and fitted fridge, auxiliary battery and water bladder. Still have lots of space for storage boxes containing food and clothes. Now redesigning the canopy.

Yesterday I removed the LH inner guard to get at the cellphone antenna base mounted on my bull bar.

Cracked the guard, mangled two push plugs and skinned three knuckles getting at the nut on the underside of the bull bar.

Fitted a permanent base in the same hole for my sand flag.

Got labelled as "pathetic" by Mrs George_M. She looked as though she meant it. I had no logical defence to offer.
Come any closer and I'll rip your throat out!

I was a pro photographer for years and have almost 500 000 photos in my collection
I have been sorting them into the various categories
I'm not talking about processing, that’s another story....
On my last trip to Sth Africa, I took 68 000 pics and, on my return, I spent 6 mths just sorting them and deleting the duds.
One day I will process them
I wonder why my eyes are sore

I connected, via Anderson, a solar panel on shed roof and PWM reg to feed the main battery in ute and as it charges to sufficient voltage it triggers the DCDC unit into keeping the aux batteries charged. Removed whole of rear of caravan sheeting, rear frame, and old ply in rear of van. Replaced with new ply full height and width of van and remade the framing and replaced the sheeting. New, double LED Tail Light units fitted and spare wheel holder replaced after a colour change to silver. Made two RC Model aircraft to fly and also made a twin brushless motor RC hovercraft. All to use when allowed to travel. I live in SRV, so held back at present.

Replaced the water pump in the camper yesterday. Amazing how much time these seemingly straightforward tasks can take !

Cheers

I have drawn on experience of a couple of games i played in my younger days

Tetris skills become invaluable when getting beer cans into my allocated fridge space, and from Kerplunk, to get them out again without a colapse.
