    I made a cheap aluminium heat shield for my aftermarket cruise control actuator. It is mounted on the firewall high on LHS, so gets a fair bit of heat from the turbo and exhaust manifold. The instructions said mount away from heat, so I thought the shield might be worthwhile.

    Fitted one of these. There are a number of good right-ups on them on Y-tube but got no responses from members on various forums I frequent. 30 day money back if your not happy with it, so I'll give it a go.

    Had a small awning made by a local bloke out of a larger tent awning I no longer have the tent for. Attached sailtrack to the top of the pod, mounted to a length of 60x60x3mm aluminium angle.
    2.1m x 2m.
    Awning can be used just with the vehicle, but pole eyelets are the same width as those on the awning of the RV3 Oztent so both can be used together using just two poles, giving a double sized awning around 4m x 2.1m (actually tent side is slightly wider at 2.3m).

    I also fitted a digital flow meter for our water supply. Beats taking the cap off the water tank & using a dip stick. Shows water flow whilst in use in litres per minute, plus total amount used, resettable to zero for each tank fill. Filled our tank & then emptied it to find it's useable capacity. Nominally the tank is 160 litres (based on dimensions). Useable capacity was 155 litres. Filled a 9 litre bucket to it's 9l mark & the meter read dead on 9 litres so I'm happy with it's accuracy, which is far better than the meters which have LEDs for 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 & full tank.
    Will even be able to know how much we use for different things. Not totally necessary but when going to 'dry' places it's nice to know how much we have left. A bargain at $41 plus a couple of fittings to add it into the water line. Basically a little tube with an internal impeller & a gauge. Runs on 2xAA batteries.

    It's a "plug-in" throttle controller for electronic throttles. Designed to adjust the throttle response. Apparently can eliminate the flat or slow spot throttle action. We'll see.
