    I piggy-backed a 10w flood light from the reverse light wiring. Pretty impressed with myself.

    So i have been doing a few things to the GU the last couple of weeks. Getting ready for a family trip next week.

    I got a full sized perspex cargo barrier years ago for the GU and never fitted it l. In have but it down the suit the drawers and stripped and repainted it.

    Finally some protection for the family. Stoked with the Perspex.







    I also bought a big inverter years ago and have never used it. Well this trip I want to charge Makita 18v batteries and drone batteries so a 3rd battery will be handy.













    Refitted the water tank for the back door too and it has all gone in well.

    Today I wired in a sub board and breaker fuse blocks for the 3elrd battery and me the inverter. 2 x q00 amp breakers and a fused block









    And just because there is never enough I added a couple of semi permanent twin 2.4amp usbs extra for the kids. More devices means more slots. These will work great.

    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.

    Reconfigured the old family wagon this afternoon since removing the Titan 85kg drawers a month or so ago now.

    Managed to squeeze in so far:
    80L Waeco old fridge
    26L Engel freezer
    2 x 20L HDPE water jerry cans
    1 x camp stove
    1 x camp table
    1 x 120W Waeco old solar kit
    &
    4 x Expedition boxes up top.

    Will fill in all the leftover nooks and crannies tomorrow now with bits and bobs and reckon sleeping bags and self inflator mattresses should jam up on top of 3 x Expedition boxes to the ceiling before dropping in the final fourth awesome box!

    Approximately 1.5 sheets of ply used, and is relatively easy to install/remove if need be as long as you have the left barn door aftermarket bracket to open wider than stupid GU OEM design!

    Champion effort MB, great work. It's harder than you think cramming stuff in the back, you've done well.

    x 2 on that @MB . I've been thinking of what to replace those drawers with. Handy, but otherwise just weight and storage hogs. That looks super simple and practical(and cheap!). Good job

    Cheers Blokes!
    Forgot to add that I needed to extend forward 80mm this specific brand GU cargo barrier to fit the second rear row of Expedition boxes.

    They fit like a pair of good gloves now


    FWIW: The ply box outer dimensions today were:
    1125mm Wide x 930mm Deep x 540mm High and used 3 of the 6mm OEM bolt holes in the floor to secure down.
    (There is a niggly notch on the floor sheet that needs to be cut out located on the right side pictured below)

    Great little stash spot for spares:

    #Complete set of belts
    #Complete set of hoses, including heater ones
    #Some thermostats to play around with
    #Spare manual hubs (thanks for the lend @rusty_nail mate)
    #Unfortunately air filter spare doesn’t fit, too fat.
