Hey DiscoBen. Saw your D3 in the flesh today in the sunny weather. I must say it’s looking very smart, especially the light bar that looks very professional.

I might add that to my list...!

Sunny Marlow High Street. I work here so you’ll see me flying around the town in my D3 most days.

Engine bay looks smart. Mine a dusty coal mine Confused

I've never been an 'engine bay cleaner' kind of person, as it doesn't make it run any better! - just thought I would give it a go today as I tidied up some wiring.
I was one of 4 black D3/4s parked in a row last week buy the park! wasn't you was it?!

Ken - of course not! that would be naughty Very Happy

Not me sir, I have a dark Botani Grey one. RWM numberplate. I’ll toot next time I pass you... I would normally flash but I worry you’ll do the same back to me and send me into partial blindness Rolling with laughter

That’s a good idea.
Not sure what I was expecting but for £100 it’s superb so far.
Hopefully the switch will arrive soon and I can finish the install.

I’m hugely impressed with it so far. Better than I expected and for not a lot of money.
Switch just arrived so I can carry on the install later 👍

Split charge rear panel done today.


I did make a ply panel to fit behind it all, but decided it didn't need it.

now I've fitted it and tried it I can see that it would eliminate flex in the panel so I may go back and fit it at some point...
Fitted a big inline fuse next to the Aux battery

Sits nicely out of the way and all sockets accessible with the boot tray in place.



All works as it should.
wondering if I should should have included a main switch to isolate the volt meter? Surely it can't draw that much just on it's own, can it....?!!

Another job was to try and protect the bluetooth USB in the rear aux input.
already clearly been battered by one of the kids!

but not surprised with the way it stuck out

so fitted some 90* adapters

a little more protection from the flip down lid, although I still can't get it to shut completely - until the next time one of the kids gives it a kicking Very Happy


Next job is the fit the light bar switch....

another job slightly ticked off today.
The Howling Moon Safari 2.1 awning arrived so I fitted it with some welded box section brackets.

The brackets are a bit rough, but good and strong enough to test for height and location front to back.
Also a good clean in prep for the Overland Show tomorrow Very Happy

As long as it works as it should that will mean the Hannibal awning will be for sale, along with the ProSpeed brackets and custom cover. Thumbs Up


I am looking at this same awning. I don't suppose you could take some close up photo's of the mounting setup could you? I have an older Prospeed roof rack and want to check it will fit, although yours looks to be very similar to mine.

I would have made an offer on your Hannibal awning but I've got the same problem as you!
