Ordered 12 meters of 4 way stretch carpet (EL154) for the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, living room and study. Its comes with 12 tins of high temp glue so that should be enough to have every glue sniffing lowlife round to our house for a fitting party. Looking at the web it seems like its pretty easy to fit and once I've washed all the walls down and removed all the stuff I've spent hours fitting the job can commence. I've got to remove the bed and steelwork and drill out all the rivets as I want the carpet top to bottom. I might even do the floor with something and then put the bed back over the top but that means lowering the legs again as its millimetre perfect at the moment and even some thin flooring will mean the bed hits the roof on folding it away. I'm thinking vinyl kitchen floor or laminate.
Fitted an EMS management system to the Ambulance (ouch £££!) so I can keep and eye on the temps on stuff. Does a few neat things and will probably worry the crap out of me that something is slightly off spec. Anyhow its better than the car going bang. Was quite easy to fit to be honest. All the cables and stuff are done and there's a good video on YouTube on a few tricks to fit things like the EGR sensor. I've removed the EGR ECU on the 300Tdi as they are terrible for clogging up the Turbo pipes and you get better MPG with it gone. Once you remove it its wise to get an EGR sensor so you can tweak the setting of the boost. I've not messed with it yet as thats way down the list of things to do.
I've also removed the 6 Way military light switch which I immediately sold to someone, so that was good. I've now got a standard light switch on the column.
The keen eyed ones might notice I got a Grey Country plastic dash trip to cover the bare metal and heater pipes. Makes her look a lot better. The Siren has been kept operational and works on a single tone only so the changeable tones have been lost. I can now compete with the African trucks in the horn competition.
I've also fitted 4 x 2.1 Amp USB charging points which i got from Tallon in New Zealand! 24 volt and marine grade so they should last. They were not cheap.
