    Hi jo what's up ?

    Look i bought a $ 55 wireless back up camera from ebay last year,actually was the 1rst mod i ever did on the horse since i purchase it.

    It comes with a 3.5" screen,the camera is positioned over the upper edge of the license plate although i managed to remove the camera from the holding hardware & placed it on the half moon cladding & just attatch the wiring to the back up light.


    The screen can be positioned on one of the AC vents,the sunvisor or over the dash board;I like how it works,very fair for the price
    Dakar was just the begining.

    You bet jo, The damage was done by a teenager on a cell phone while the rig was sitting at a stop light. Damaged the cladding a little tin work and shoved the rear wheel back enough to damage the axle housing slightly. It ripped the weld on the housing at the forward rod mount. The shop used by the insurance co. Quoted full bore price on a complete axle etc. The total repair came to 6800 bucks. The ins. co. totaled it. The original owner told me that 3 days later the rig pulled up at his place of business looking fine and 3 Russian fellows came in and ask him for the remotes for the door locks. When he started questioning them about how they could have got the thing repaired already if it was so bad they took off. He thinks he was scammed on the deal and isn't a happy camper. I mentioned that I would be willing to purchase the VX stuff he has but he never returned my call. I guess when you get your girlfriend stolen you're bound to be sore for awhile.

    I'm gonna fit the ORW with a new drivers side window regulator...

    ...and the SBC window "Support/rack".

    I did it to the VXEN a few weeks ago...

    Put some RallyArmor flaps on my WRX this weekend. While I was at it, I toyed around with them for fitment on the VX. Looks like, they just might work with some minor adjusting, and they do offer a universal set anyways (ones on my WRX are pre-fitted). Gonna hook myself up with a set and try it out. MachV tends to get parts out to me quick so maybe this coming weekend I will be able to give it a shot.

    Oh, and CEL 442 popped up so I will be looking into that one too. Throttle position sensor if I am correct. Have not looked into it yet.

    Finished up my CB install. Got the cb itself mounted to the side of the transmission tunnel, got the mic mounted to the dash on a custom made plate, and got the antenna wire run so it's all hidden. I mounted the antenna with a clamp style mount to the roof basket and now the VX looks like a big remote control car.

    This actually took me a couple of weekends to do only because I wanted to make sure that when I take the CB out (I won't run it year round, just for Moab) I can tuck the wires away and you'd never know the CB was there in the first place.

    Mark, can you post some details and pics? Where exactly did you mount the CB? I would like one mounted up high like in a big rig but our head room is bad to begin with.

    with the amount of time you spend wheeling i would think you would have a perminently mounted CB...

    you could do something like mine, give a nice concealed look but great function..

    i have mine mounted in the center console...ill try to get some pics for you tomorrow

    Bart,

    A friend is borrowing my camera right now, but I'll try and get some camera-phone shots so you can see what's going on. I thought about mounting the CB on the ceiling between the visors, but that would mean I would have to drill or cut into the headliner and I'm not about to do that. It looks a little "stuck on" mounted to the side of the transmission tunnel, but I think it works; particularly as a "temporary" installation.

    Also, I'm sure you'll like this part, everything is black. I bought a Cobra 29LTDBC radio (http://www.walcottcb.com/cobra-29ltd...io-p-1242.html) because it's black chrome with a blue LED read out. SWEET!! I then painted the mounting bracket black so with the black and grey interior and the tinted windows it's really subtle.

    Pics to come.
