    I've gone completely off buying inferior lugs and now go to the local electrical wholesaler. The products are dear but of better quality and fit the crimpers properly.

    After seeing @PeeBee's electrical overload melting his CTEK and this video of a VW catching Fire from an electrical fault (https://youtu.be/6VTZmp3oPz0) I picked up a 1kg Fire extinguisher on sale at Bunnings today.
    $16.89 down from $19.90.
    I also grabbed some scrap aluminium from the metal recyclers to make a bracket to mount it in front of the passenger seat.

    Good choice but a simpler solution, in my case anyway was to simply concentrate on what I was doing and put my brain into gear.

    I have 2 in the GU. I have used one on a fully involved engine fire of a Commodore in the middle of the road. Saved his car for sure.

    In have mine mounted to the base of the B Pillar behind he driver's seat. Is perfect there. They really should be mounted standing if possible.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    And turn upside down and tap with a rubber mallet every 6 months or so to stop the powder settling.

    Well, another wire solder kit arrived in the post today, must have ordered it, cant remember. This one works as intended. It has a tricky plasitic sleeve over the solder that is used to house some small red locator and guide rings to assist the wire pigtails getting aligned inside the solder donut. During the solder melt stage, the plastic shield degrades/disappears. a supplementary shrink sleeve is supplied and then slid over the heat affected zone to complete the joint. It is a good system I think, does it save time over the more manual wire twist solder then shrink sleeve - maybe not, however it hoes have all the bits in one place and pre-cut for use. wire solder kit.JPGsolder joint 2.JPGsolder joint 2.JPGsolder joint 1.JPGfinished joint.JPG
    Looking at the soldered joint it looks pretty average, however I think this is the plastic melted on the outside - the solder definitely runs thru and over the entire wire joint and is mechanically sound.

    I got two in the front of the GU, one in front of each seat on the floor.

    When they go end of life I'll be replacing them with the newer style of exitinguisher. Can't remember what they're called, but they're smaller & last longer and I don't think they have an end of life date.
