    Custom Trailers, Custom Bikes, Custom Cars... But we will get to those later!!!!
    I love camping and FISHING and my truck is setup for that purpose!!!

    Being a refrigeration mechanic for 10 years helped me build this heat exchanger for my shower setup in my truck which is fed from my 50litre water tank in my tray!!!

    This is it all fitted and plumbed in to my heater system ... Works awesome too!!
