On the MODS side of things.

I started a mock up of a new Rear Storage setup.

The idea is to have easier access to my fridge while out and about and have a flat floor with storage underneath for general everyday stuff.



Behind the seats there is this so far



and installed this above the glove box.
hooked up to constant 12V from the AUX battery.




Then I got sick of my ipad setup so went a step further and dash mounted a Google Nexus 7" Tablet.

I purchased a Google Nexus 7 LTE tablet off eBay with a cracked screen and replaced it.
I used an old head unit with rear AUX RCA input turns out it fit far enough back that I had enough room to mount the tablet.
Since I have a spare facia I started hacking this one up.

I used Timurs kernel which has some cool features like deep sleep when tablet power is disconnected.
For charging using a USB OTG cable which plugs into the tablet then has a Male and Female USB port Y connector. (Allows USB devices to be connected while charging the device.

Head unit has a Ground Loop Isolator and Bluetooth Module inside the dash.

First photo is of my USB extension routed.



I used a piece of Perspex to hold the tablet in place and glued some foam either side so it fit snug.



Head unit etc inside the dash, head unit starts straight back to previous state, so boots straight to previous volume and source input.



Couple pics of the final install.





USB hub for USB connectivity

Which brings me up to the present.

Got myself a Black Wolf Turbo Tent



Caught up with a Jimny Owner from the Northern Territory (Top of AUS) with one wicked Ute Chop.





Had a quick wheel

Very impressive set-up. I especially like what you've done with the electronics in the fascia / passnger area, might nick one or two of your ideas in future...
