Battery system
The 3rd mod for the weekend was fitting a optima yellow top and a redarc smart monitor for both batterys.
I had a hilux dual battery tray laying around so i decided to use this , it only needed a new hole drilled and a bracked made for the left hand side underneath

Dash mods
After fitting the batterys I decided I needed to monitor them so I brought myself a raceface battery monitor gauge from ebay
While I was at it I purchased a oil pressure gauge and a pod to mount them in.
I Cut a hole in the dash and fitted the gauge pod using 3m glue to glue it in and proceeded to smooth everything off .

Ipad in a jimny dash :
I am one of those guys that hates plastic suckers all over the windscreen and I use a ipad with mudmap for navigation purposes, my samsung with mm tracker and a back up paper map .
I decided to fit a ipad mini 4g to the dash for these duties aswell as spotify and what ever other app we will need.

so at this point I undid all the previous work I had done undercoating the dash , i cut out the heater vents and main control bezel .

Finally finished fitting my roof console to the jimny , I used 4x angle brackets , tapped the two rear holes in the roof out to m10 and picked the front mounting location off the interior light position while i was there i adapted a rear led light to the interior light .
