  • Shorty's getting some mods!

    Well I've finally got around to getting some mods done to the Shorty while I'm back in Melb.

    A few weeks ago she got fitted with some D697s. Have put photos up previously of that so won't do another specific photo of that!


    The first projects while waiting for the bulbar to arrive was to get the UHF and spotlight wiring in, and then fit the bar and the antenna/lights to the bar.

    Plastic face easily removed to allow access


    Cut the back of the black plastic out and slot the UHF in. The gaps either side of the radio are filled in with a metal bracket which is screwed into from outside of the plastic. It stops sideways and also fore/aft movement of the radio.









    Old bumper off


    Bullbar and HIDs fitted. Lights are a bit big for the bar, I may fix this at some stage!



    The bar also got some new indicator lights, the old ones were cactus!




    Spottie switch





    Replacement bash plate- thanks Rick (my.paj)! Getting a bit of re-shaping done with the help of vehicle weight!






    Antenna fitted via bracket






    Very old set of air-horns fitted. Not the greatest of locations, might get drowned if it goes thru water but until then they will do!


    Video to get a quick sound blast - http://s131.photobucket.com/user/Ale...071e7.mp4.html



    Replaced a whole bunch of bolts, cleaned up some corrosion on spots and its currently getting treated and painted. All surface and cosmetic type stuff. Also got some plastic trim bits to cover some more seat track ends.














    Got a few new rubber stoppers for doors too as they were missing




    And what she's looking like now



    Oh, sheepskin seat covers also went on, but there's no point taking a pic of that!


    I have a replacement 2270kg towbar that I need to clean up and give a bit of a re-spray that might get bolted on tomorrow if I have the time.

    Future plans otherwise- window tint, a roof rack, snorkel one day, and a suspension lift. All down the track.

    nice work.

    Is the bash plate behind the front one standard?

    I don't have one there. Might have to try and source one if so.

      Nice work.

      Where did you source the door stops? Until your post I didn't even know they were missing on mine

        the rear bash plate was there on the parents nl gls and also on my escape when they were both purchased, so yeah I imagine they are standard.

        rubber stoppers came off a wreck down at a yard. Not sure how "universal" those kind of things are between different makes car. There were some on one of the pajs there so I grabbed them!

            the bash plate needed a bit of curve back into it as it was contacting the diff housing, and the straight edges at the front and back got a slight bend straightened. Little bits at a time with the vehicle weight, check, try a bit more etc got it fitting fairly well.

            glad its on and protected now!

              Maybe remove that cross bar from the centre loop? Plenty of room then. Haha
              It'll match the escape!

                thought about doing that, Tristan. However there's possibly not enough space on the flat part of the bumper section to mount them as the back of the lights might hit the grill.

                the mounting tabs may be cut and placed lower on the crossbar.

                job for another day!

                  Here's a few more pics that I've finally taken off the camera...


                  Nasty looking tie-downs!






                  Better looking tie-downs!!




                  High-beam only


                  High-beam and the new HID spotties (1x spot, 1x flood, not aimed)



                  My eyes hurt looking at them!




                  CB microphone mounted. Dad likes making brackets. The mouting clip is screwed into a block with some rubber backing, and the block is screwed thru into the original trim. No new holes in the car







                  Getting there. Next Melb trip will hopefully include getting out on some tracks!

                    I ordered some from mitsu last week, here is what I ordered:

                    MI-MB321885 - DAMPER-RUBBER. You'll need 4 for a 5 door
                    MI-MB019730 - CUSHION-DOOR. You'll need 6 for a 5 door

                    $60 all up. Door close is a lot nicer and they don't rattle as much now.
