  1. Mine is single too. Definatly notice low rpm vibrations, but all that means is that you should probably be shifting down a gear anyway! Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2
  2. Hey guys, So about 3 months ago I picked up some 35 claws on -44 15x10 rims. They look awesome on the patrol and give it great stance but I haven't been game to drive further that home after picking them up without flares covering them. Over the past while I've been reading up on flare extension options and to be honest don't really want to go down this road with a permanent modification as then my daily 31 or 33s would loom out of place on +10 gu rims. So I came to he thought of temporary or removable flares that I only put on when running the claws on big offset rims. Now everything I have read to now says to just torque screw them in but I fear for my flares being torn if the Bunnings flares get ripped off and they wouldn't be readily removable. The other day I was reading the nexus 7 diy thread for the head unit where he held the tablet with rare earth magnets. What is through potential for doing this with Bunnings flares. I.e. having them magnetized to my existing flares so that with enough force they could be removed with not damage. This would allow them to be removable when needed for looks but also stop them ripping up my factory flares... Any ideas on how to glue the magnets so that the glue with be strong enough to hold them? Will the magnets be strong enough to hold the flares when at high speeds? I.e. wind resistance at 100km/h won't have me losing flares? I found these on eBay would these be suitable or should I be looking at others? http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com.au/viewitem?itemId=250753121489 Let me know your thoughts. And yes I could just get some -22 rims. Infact I have a set. But I like the idea of the big offset for looks and stability. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2
  3. So I finally finished adapting a tablet mount for the spare din slot. I've got a Bluetooth head unit which can be controlled remotely through both my phone and the tablet at the same time, allowing me to make and recieve calls whilst also doing anything I want on the tablet i.e. Mapping and listening to music. The easiest way to explain it is that I got a air vent mount that suited a tablet and removed the vent mount section and instead drilled it into a shaped piece of timber that slots snugly into the spare din slot I have after I removed the original radio. It works really well, with very little movement, great line of sight, doesn't get in the way of the gear shift, I still have full control of the radio and the air vents aren't blocked. I've also wired behind dash a 12v adapter for the tablet so I have tablety goodness all day and night (which is brilliant when, when combined with the keyboard dock (which also has a battery in it) I get a total of 16 hours battery life) and I have a portable battery pack that I can charge it with giving me a total of about 4 days before I need to plug it into the car/mains again. Anyways feel free to ask questions! It was a really easy mod that only required a saw and a drill!
