Hi all,

I just received my new drawers for the back of the Pajero. They were made by a Business member of EO and to my own specifications.

I want them higher then standard to take my tools and larger/stronger in other areas to take a battery pack.
They were made on time ex factory. The courier who took them from Melbourne to Sydney thought that Parkes NSW was somehow in Qld so they had a scenic drive getting to me

Once again Jim was on to it tracking them down and asking them politely to deliver them to me.

Thanks Jim I'd recommend you to anyone.

Cheers Wilko

Hi Wilko,

I built these drawers myself for touring and they work well, I did look at the factory ones but didn't realise they did custom sizes.

I definitely put in a $1000 worth of work and next time I will be glad to pay the extra $1000 for the factory ones. The stove tray lives in the middle draw and clips onto the wheel carrier for a quick cuppa on the roadside.

Hi Geoff,

That looks good. I thought about making them myself but For the money I paid I couldnt have done anything like what I got.

I also really didnt have the time to design & make them nor the ability to get them to fit into the space like the ones I got do.

Cheers Wilko

Good Choice Wilko,

I can't count the number of times I hit my head or my elbows or got stuck inside the bloody things.

I'm not a carpenter or electrician so it was a big learning curve with a few choice words along the way.

Regards
Geoff

Interesting points Geoff.

We can supply a similar unit for $1650 that simply bolts into existing points in your car (in about 10 minutes). No skin off the elbows or knuckles LOL.

These things are not easy to build without the right gear. Our computer controlled CNC Router that cuts all components set us back $110,000.

Cheers,

Jim.

That's cheaper than what I looked at.

So I'll come and see you when I upgrade the 80 series.

Regards
Geoff

Just recieved a set of Jims drawers, they seem quite good given the price paid. Better than the drawers is the service given before and after purchase including any query on its whereabouts. It arrived undamaged, drawers have no side or up and down movement although one of the two drawers does not slide as smoothly as the other, more of a irritation than a problem.
In all I was happy with my purchase.......Peter

Peter,

It's probably some paint on the bearings. Hit the rails with some CRC or WD40, slide them in and out a few times and the spray should dissolve it. Then wipe the rails with a bit of rag or paper towel.

Cheers,

Jim.
