Gives about 2inch lift to front which imo aint a bad thing bearing in mind how big speed bumps and pot holes are getting these days!!
Feels like a foot higher inside van!!

Definately a much nicer smoother ride now and feels like im a foot higher fpr some reason but its nice lording it up above everyone lol
Glad i got the uprated 190 springs now too so i can load up as usual and hardly drop the van. Great for towing too !

Played a bit with some wiring other day too finally connected toys to switches so can isolate without disconnecting battery like on weekenders where i wanted some led lights on but also a small tv on standby and usb chargers managed to help kill battery. Now all on a nice illuminated switch next to amplifier remote switch.
Will at some point get a 30w panel for roof !

Thats all for now!

Treated meanie to a new air filter with cold air feed too!
The old one was filthy as hell so hopefully this performs better than just a clean one as this should reduce intake of hot air!!ImageImageImage

So weeks later still not driven meanie yet to test airbox however have finally pulled finger out and started a carport (emma said do a temp one)....
Used a load of 6x2 at 4.8m.
Tripled it up as centre post. Had a 3x6 post i found and used 2x for left hand end front post. Gonna be over 7m wide by 6 deep once roof goes on with half meter overhang all way round.
Started painting posts with fence paint as i ran out of light,well light to do anynmore cutting. Aaron actually was very helpful and actually painted lower half of posts as i asked before going off on usual tangent and painting rest of garden!!!
More building today I'll post more pics.
Few more holes to dig today too.
Brought myself some 'spoons' (2post hole shovels bolted together opens like huge pliers) defo worth the 25quid or so i paid!!!!

Mad bri sorted me out loads of wood last year thats gonna be gettin used very soon!!!

Back soon!ImageImage
