i like those gems too. wow . i never saw or dig ones in my life thats so cool. so yh but cant you do it just with one hammer ? haha
in my trip what i had bad was fridge cooler box. its not like real fridge . and thats plug was allways melting when it was pluged, so after half trip i wasnt using that cooler anymore. still managed with food no probs. just no cold drinks inside car. so that shame. i would fix upgrade that part only. all else was just great .
those crystals gems stuff you digging there are awesome. my mom would just love them. when we go to sea with her she allways takes like 20 kg of stones from sea to bring back home to her garden. haha.
about those subs. well make your box compact and put that to side or both sides 2 boxes if you need. i mean im pretty happy with my smaller box on side. its still gives boom boom in car and i have all trunk space for me. well not after i put hi lift jack there but allmost.

You need more tools than 1 hammer between 3 people, some situations call for delicate hands..... which can be hard to do with only a hammer lol






Just a few of the amazing smoky quartz and “crystal bombs” we found the last time we went to the Grampians.
All thanks to my trusty Foz.

Eventually I will definitely do something similar to your sub arrangement, but for now it will have to do as is lol
You should mount your hi lift on your roof basket your going to make !!

My Wife and Mum are the same as your Mum lol
Both wanting to return with so many rocks/shells/crystals and even dirt when we are looking for gold and there’s no water nearby to pan with.

So I got my new Mini tyres on Thursday, 1 day earlier than expected lol




I know they aren’t anything special at all really, but I’m just so happy i have some safe tyres to get us down and back.

Also grabbed some sca led trailer lights and tried to use the existing wiring loom but it was too far gone, so instead I grabbed 4m of 7core trailer wire and a new 7 pin trailer socket and did it myself.


Ended up all working fine and even added a mini reverse led bar just to keep with the theme lol




The “mini led bar” is the same one I used in my boot, except I only used one for reversing, but can easily add another if need be.

The only real issue I had was there was no reverse light power coming from the terminal on the cars towing socket,
so I just found the reverse lights globe, then found power, followed it back to a loom and tapped in there.
So now reverse works just fine.
Would prefer to have not bridged but it’s fine until I can be bothered doing it properly.

Also reinstalled the wheel guards.
All in all I’m super happy with it now and all it needs is a mocka license plate and I’d call it done.

wow man those gems. i would be interested myself in them. but we have nothing here just mud haha.
nice new lights on trailer. those leds again. hmm mine one led stopped working those 2 for rear light. not sure whats problem. still cold outside but its wires or leds juts died. it would be shame. that one led inside works long time now. it says they are water proof and such so water shouldnt be prob for them i think .
hmm not sure i would wanna mount hi lift on my roof rack as it could attract no needed atention. even if lock it still. well i would put it when i would go on trip i guess.
p.s. im lying about gems, we had amber from sea , before you could find it more but now not so much but it was cool and my mom had some collection in small boxed of amber that she found in Baltic Sea before.

we have amber museums here and in old times there where lots amber here from sea but its gone now.

Lots of mud here too scalman lol
Wow that amber is awesome man !!
Never seen it before

Maybe check your wiring is all ok , use connectors to join the light to power source rather than soldering so it’s easy to remove and inspect.
Yes my idea for you is to mount hi lift on roof when u go away
And store in boot for day trips

So today I finally got around to installing my new 12v socket for the front of the car as the old one died not long ago, I also mounted my twin 12v sockets in the rear of the car for the trip so people in the back seats can charge as well.




More importantly I finally got around to putting one of my new stickers on the Foz.




And I also pre-packed the trailer lol
(And removes the subs )


I’ll take a better shot once the cars fully packed,
And hopefully many pics on our journey.
