    Turns out they're quite different. Might have to pull the diagram for the 80 series and compare it to the 90 series and see what's different.

    Are those screw holes placed right for a Jesus handle?

    Yeah, trim mounts in where the stock jesus handle used to go. Mine's dirty so im going to give it a clean then a spray in the same paint as the trim. Alternatively you get chrome push covers for the screws.

    And roof mount lights.

    Will probably run the side ones like this because of the awning on the passenger side. I was planning to run them on the top but they're a good size for underneath.

    A quick video i made of the gauge's startup sequence, and also what happens when you hit your pre-determined level.

    The pyro gauge isnt currently hooked up to the thermocouple.

    So, i made a bit of a mess of the battery wiring with the amount of accessories im now running in such a small space.

    [​IMG]

    Purchased a 6 way blade in/out fuse holder as visible in the earlier shots and well...it sucks. So much extra wiring. 12 just for power. The above picture was when i only had half done. So t's twice as bad now.

    So i've bought one of these which should arrive before the weekend. I will then transfer the 6 way up under the dash and run constant through it.

    Hopefully it arrives before Saturday.

    I really should do one for the Prado and all its gadgets
    Its rarely off road but it does a lot of night time country roads and has all the bells and whistles that are expected of me

    How do those lights go? I'm looking for something extra to mount on the bull bar of my Pajero just beside I can, and don't want something that's useless.

    What exactly were you thinking the lights would do? LED bar as a replacement for spots or small LED work lights to flood the area in front to pitch tent, climb rocks and NEVER switch them on while driving on the road. lol
