Bossie, daai bash plate is my maaksel, maar ek twyfel of hy op 'n Safari sal pas. As jy bereid is om Kempton park toe te ry kan ons kyk?
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Ek het PBE stelsel in my eie kar, nou al omtrent ses jaar, en nie 'n enkele klagte nie. Ek het ook nou HCdP se paneel-stelsel in my waentjie ingebou.

Wil jy dalk kom kyk, dan sit ek sommer gou jou skid-plate vir jou op?
Ek sal dit vreeslik geniet. Ek sal verkies as ek dit n saterdag trippie kan maak.

Ek het nou gaan meet by die solenoid en net tussen hom het ek al kla n voltage drop van 0.08-0.1v
Hy word ook vreeslik vinnig warm so ek kan my verbeel dat hy maklik n 1v drop kan gee.

Any chance of a list of parts for the job & size/NM of the strut?

Maybe some measurements too please?

:pray:
It is a 350mm strut 500Nm, I have to admit that it is a bit to heavy so I woud say you can about half that, when I get a chance I will have it deflated. This was the only one they had in stock, works great.
Parts:
1/350mm strut
1/rear joint
1/front joint
2/straight ball joint
1/90 degree bend
2/M8 nuts
4/M8 washers
2/M8 spring washers or teflon nuts
2/M6 bolts ~20mm-30mm long
2/M6 nuts
4/M6 wahers
2/M6 spring washers or teflon nuts

Tools
13mm spanner and socket
10mm spanner and socket
6mm drill
8mm drill
Punch

Tips
Be careful unclipping the door interior pannel, the clips tend to break.
Loosen the door catch, pull the door open a bit more then mark the hole on the door bottom so when you retighten the catch the door will always be under tention without play.
Do not worry to much about the measurements I guessed it based on a patrol4x4.com picture of a 290mm strut. So the idea is quite flexible on available parts.
