Made a waterproof light bar for the cross bar on the CT annex.  Thanks to a mate of mine who gets the components at the right price (he uses hundreds of them each week) I now have a 2 metre LED light bar in powder coated channel with 12v and 240v options and completed for uner $25.00.

Tried it last night and it illuminated entire under house area.  Going to make another 2 metre bar for front room, then 1 x 1 metre to use on side of CT and 2 x 1/2 metre bars for bed area.
Cheers,

Taz

Got the new polyfuse for the inlaws Waeco fridge as per the OP.
Tested it all before putting it back together, including the AC which converts it to 24v and noticed the voltage was fluctuating a bit.  Would climb up too 28v?  Anyhoo carefully put it all back together and bent the fridge pipes back to location (don't think they would survive to much pulling apart) and ran it on full turbo on 12v for 8 hours with no dramas.  Flicked it to 240v and no action ???  Makes the same weird humming sound as it did before?  Solution!  Stuck a piece of duct tape over the AC plug and wrote 12v only!  Hey I'm no 240v expert and the fridge is only used in the back of their 4by.

I am so incredibly jealous of this thread. If only I still had a Man Cave. With a 3.5yo, another one on the way and a wife obsessed with scrapbooking I lost my Man Cave many moons ago!! My drumkit is relegated to the lounge room where I can never play it, and my tiny shed is full of stuff..

Oh, the days of having my own Man Cave - thinking about putting up another shed & lining it for just that purpose!!
Got the bug, try & stop me!!

Back to only one trailer in the shed today (unfortunately it's the unfinished camper). I picked up this single cab Triton tray for nothing on a local buy, swap, sell site. I bought about $200 worth of gal steel and made a new chassis and stole the axle,  hubs,  springs and hitch off my old dead 8x5. Had 2 tins of hammertone green that I bought for $5 and gave it a spray out under the mango tree. Pretty good price I reckon for a good size trailer that should last me ages now.

I jacked up my EVO 6 Tommi Makinen and removed the tow points, race pads and semi slicks, removed the race seat and 6 point harness and put the stock seat back in, put the carpets and mats back in and installed the spare tyre and jack as well as all the boot linings. I was going to wash and polish but I wouldn't of been back from my drive in time to watch the start of the F1. It was nice to finally get in the shed and do some fiddling with stuff I wanted to play with.

Removed the kitchen from the camper and cleaned up the tray it sits in. Gave it a coat of paint or 2.
Hopefully I will have the new kitchen carcus built tomorrow and then I get to put it all back together.
It will all depend what time the sheet of material lands at the local fabricator ( I can't weld aluminum).
 Photos are on the way.

I deferred the front pathway landscaping, and front fence yard access gate adjustment job along with the fix trampoline and whipper snipper jobs which are way overdue to make a start on the Custom drop down fridge slide for the Troopy to hold the 100 litre trailblazer.
I was hoping to have it done for this weekend but seen as my favorite lathe man is off for a weeks rest, my twin wire drum shaft machining will have to wait.
When done, I'll make this a seperate post somewhere.
I'd hate to get yelled at with a "this thread is worthless with out pics!" sign.

installed my new Projector battery charger into the KK today after the original failed and was replaced under warranty. wasn't much fun inside the camper out in the full sun with how hot and muggy it was here in Brisbane today, sweated out all the alcohol from the engagement party i went to lastnight that's for sure  ;D ;D

Did the Ozhitch conversion on my treg hitch. Took longer than I thought it would, but more time in the garage can't be bad right ;D

Also did a small but important mod to the Pajero. It was a bit fiddly, but I took my time as i had to be extremely precise. Measurements had to be to the mm, levels had to be spot on and I had to make sure it was a dust free environment. Turned out OK I think...............

Friday and Saturday was a 2" Tough Dog lift with Polyairs installed to the Prado, not IN the shed, as I would not have gotten it back out again.
Yesterday was wiring on the camper, in preparation for Easter. Stoopid Jayco wiring. Who would have thought, the fuses on the Setec do nothing, well maybe not 'nothing' but there is no fuse for the 12v on the fridge..
