    Now getting into fitting the dash and as I have a multitude of non std extras fitted I need to run a lot of auxiliary wires, to assist with this I've fitted TD5 bulkhead grommets

    I like that a LOT - looks really good :) Watching :)

    The battery isolators I have fitted in the past have just been from the "local" caravan place - or off the bay - no issues yet .....;)
