Time to take the Paj off-road and update with pictures then. Drive safe, Ricky.


Totally agree with you on the preventive maintenance bit. Glad you agree with me on the choice of "timeless classics"

Would love to own a Hyderabad kind of Jeep (Rubicon / Wrangler) but my slip disc (bad back) would not permit me to use a true blue Jeep :-( A VW Beetle was very much on the menu but just did not find a good car.

Would love to own a true "hotrod" if someone can actually put one together. A 1956 Bel Air with a worked on V8 under the hood, generating a whooping 500+ Bhp (dream....)

The Pajero is now getting a new sound system. A basic Pio 3250 HU with a Blau THA 555 5 channel amp OR a Bull 4 channel, 3 Way Rainbow Components & a Hertz Sub. Should be done by tomorrow. Will post pics of the same.

So far so good.





Cheers

Ok so here are some pictures of the Pajero with the fog lamps & the Audio going into it. It is WIP, should be over by tomorrow.

Using a basic Pio 3250 HU with USB & AUX in front. Bull Audio Cabling & power kit, Bull 4 channel amp, Rainbow Speakers (3 way components-6"/4"/1.5"), Hertz 10" Subwoofer in a sealed box

Will post additional pics of the custom install.

Let the pics do the talking !!


Cheers

Hi

The UPDATE is that the Pajero after having gone thru a total health check up, has now gone in for a complete AUDIO upgrade.

Would I call it an upgrade ? Yes & No, because I think it is rather a complete transplant & the setup sounds S U P E R B !!

So far I tried my USB stick with an assorted mix of songs & my trusty old SNF CD. The sound clarity & quality is mind blowing !!

The setup has been done by BBW Distributors aka Jasdeep & Gunbir, as usual brilliant job with meticulous eye for detail. Way to go guys !!!

Putting up a few snaps I shot..


Cheers

Has anyone experienced the feeling of taking the longer route to every destination - JUST - to be able to ride your vehicle more & more ??

Seem like when I was 18 & got a license to drive !!

I am enjoying every minute of the drive

Can anyone guide me to a workshop where lights are actually focussed right ?

Have not been able to get it done at Phil's so far - either too high or too low.

Yes I know the feeling of being "18" again!!!

Personally I find that most of the workshop guys have their own ides of how headlights need to be focused - "Blind the on coming bugger!!!" is their mantra.

The proper focus needed is to illuminate road slightly left of the centre with high beams at parallel to the ground. Most of the time I end up standing on their head and get them to adjust the way it should be.

LOL you are so helpful ! No I mean seriously.

Properly focussed lights really help but my workshop does not understand that at all. They are either too high or too low

I think it is a fairly simple process, except that someone has to see to it

Finally got the focus right . for both the stock headlamps, as well as the Hellas.

Thinking of upsizing tyres, what are my options ?? From what I found at dealers here, there are hardly any options than to stick to 265/70/15 (OE).

Was also toying with the idea of a lift kit & larger tyres.

Any suggestions ?




Cheers

Default Some pics of a recent highway run !

Sharing some pics from a short highway run, could not exceed 120 kmph, as NH8 was packed due to a recent truck mishap.

The Pajero ran well, but on the way back I did notice some strange sounds, am unable to put a finger on what that might be, the sound is heard only on releasing the accelerator. Nothing serious, but will have it checked in a day or so




Cheers

Is the Good Year Wrangler available here ? I went to a dealer of Good Year today & he claims they are NOT available in India....thought I saw some SUV's running them.
Any leads ??

Or should I stick to the tried & tested - Yokohama 265/70/15's

Going to off-road? You'd do well in spending time on this thread (The Offroad Rims & Tyres Thread). I personally like Michelin's balance between onroad & offroad performance.

Nope it was more like a grunting sound , disappears when I take it to a workshop though .

Will have it put on a lift & see if there is something out of line. For now the sound is gone, but it is going to the farm off & on, so cannot take chances

@GTO - no serious off roading- trying to negotiate the potholes actually !!!! LOL



Cheers
