One of the things I love to do most is work on my car, its been a while since i’ve written about my modifications if ever, I tend to play around the electrical systems a lot, and now i’ve been trying to do manually install everything myself without relying on garages unless Its way too complicated for me, I have a tendency to read the installation manuals any way, so I decided to get all my tools in place and start doing the work myself. It sometimes takes a lot longer, but you get to learn a lot!
I’ll also try to reference some good shops and garages you can take your cars to, so if you’re interested please share any questions you might have and i’ll try to provide you with as much help as possible.
A list of things that I will start writing about :
1. ScanGuage II and how it was installed in the top storage Area
2. Roof top lighting wiring
3. How to wire your lighting system
4. Gobi Roof Rack install and water issues

It will be a bumpy ride, but I hope you’ll enjoy the content, if you like DIY projects, this website will be the place to be in. I’ll start to document my DIY projects and share them with you for knowledge sharing and so that I can learn new things as I go a long.
