Yeah both thermos run at same time.

I have a Relay for each thermo on a 30amp fuse with a triger wire from ignition to turn relays on when ignition is on

Aswell as you dont need thermos on all time when car is cold so i bought one of these not this brand but all i could find to you

Well the brake on my Hi Mount had already been drilled and tapped taking me half a day to work out what thread it was its 3/8 UNF why not use 10mm or 12mm something simple..
After working out what it was all i had to do why remove the Cerclip put washers over shafter to space it blah blah blah and put bolt in

Image

Image


Hope it all works fine i put cable on under the weight of the shorty and brake all seem to do its stuff. So fare so good :)

Aswell before hand there was no real bracing in the mounts was just to 8mm plates that slid inside chassie" new mounts have some corner bracing

Well Drop Boxes are in got them in Friday Arvo.

Shorty now handles a shitload better on road" Witch is what i was hoping
for once i got the drop boxes in.
Front diff moved forward about 18mm so little less chance of gauge scrubbing not that it did anyway.


Here's couple pic's of the drop boxes and arms back in

Image

Image

And how all sit's back on its wheels

Image

Image

Image



All i got to do now is Mod my sliders a little as the bolted to my cross member.
There going to stay bolted there" Just have to grind welds of part that joins to slider and raise slider up so sliders dont site on are on angle.
