One question, the spare wheel sits very low from factory and I have seen many Patrols with after marker bumpers and the wheel sits higher than the bumper.
Do you modify the wheel carrier or what?
Het jy al 'n oplossing hiervoor gekry?

Michael wrote:Ok so I have done another small change on my Patrol.

As everybody knows the 4.2D engine likes to get a bit hot when its warm outside and you are towing something heavy. I have notced mine do this one time when I was on my way back from Polokwane towing 1.8 ton, the Patrol did get that hot, but the needle on the gauge started to move past the middle mark and Madman recorded readings of 105deg water temp exiting the engine.

I have alwas knew that my steel bumper was one of the biggest problems as it restricts airflow quite a bit.

So I made a plan and thought I might as well make it look good while I do it.

Luckely I do know how to measure and have a friend in office that knows how to draw things in Autocad.
The plan was to cut the front section of my steel bumper open and replace it with the following
The attachment drawing.jpg is no longer available
That was easy enough, luckely I also know Tinus that knows peaple with CNC maschines so that part was covered as well
The attachment before.jpg is no longer available
And the morning after!!
The attachment after.jpg is no longer available
Now my Radiator get allot more air as well as my intercooler. This is still the first part of my plan to get the cooling system working better and will still build some air guids behind the bumper to make sure the wind has to go through the radiator and not around it
Michael, ek soek ook so iets. Wie het dit vir jou gemaak?

Fanus, dit is baie maklik om so iets te maak.

Ek het op papier iets rofweg geteken met mates en toe vir n ou by die werk gegee wat Autocad het. Hy het dit oor geteken en ek het die Autocad file vir n engineering pleg gestuur en hulle het hom ge CNC.

Easy as pie

Michael

Daai trol van jou lyk awesome en die krag is verbysterend. Jitte, sal darem bitter lekker wees om eendag myne by jou te kom aflaai en se, maak daai perde los daarbinne, en maak hulle sommer lekker kwaad, en sit sommer n terpentyn lappie ook daar agterin dat hy kan lekker hol. Ek vermoed op die stadium het myne omtrent 14kw. Ai.

Baie mooi gedoen.

Groete
