In the road not much diference, low range on the high beam.

Offroading, way better then the standard. Better light, brighter.

Hello everybody.

Keeping the journal updated, a little tlc in my Maverick this saturday.

The front was bothering me, as the old supports from the front protection were sticking out of the bumper and could hurt someone.
Out with the bumper, removed the old supports and while at it installed new ones for the new LED lights.

Cleaned everything and painted to old the rust for a few more years.

While painting i also gave a try with the front grille.

Thoughts?


Some photos.

Before:


After:


New support.



THe final work:

It will be on the VIN plate in the engine bay, it's under a section called colour/trim etc

Once you've got that I have a comprehensive paint code list here;

This week the Red Mav increased 5cm (2").
New rear springs (from jimnybits) and a few turns on the torsion bars.

Now i'm searching for a new set of shocks for the rear.

What is the best option to get the most travel distance between closed and fully opened?
Does anybody know the default sizes?

Well, to help others here are some measures.

News springs on the back and a few turns on the torsion bars.

where - before - after
front - 86cm - 89cm
rear - 87cm - 94cm

I can't lift more in the front, and the rear will drop a bit with some weight in the trunk and a few months on the springs.


About the shocks.

With the standard ones:
Fully compressed: 36cm (disconected from the car)
Compressed: 46cm (connected to the car)
Rest position: 54cm
Fully opened: 60cm

So, i have a travel distance of 14cm.

From what i saw i can increase up to 68cm without messing with hoses and others, gaining 8cm of travel distance.

The new shocks should have 40cm fully compressed and 68cm fully open.

Sorry for using metric measures!

Well.

Keeping my "Captain Log" up to date.

Maverick with 331411 Km (+/- 206000 miles).
This weekend i did the biggest travel ever (for me) on a 4x4, 1661Km (1032 miles).
2,5 tanks of fuel!!! Average of 11L/100 (25.6 mpg).

(On road tyres from a Pajero, 245/70 R16)

Solved a air leak (broken pipe from the compressor to the wastegate) and found that my turbo is going away... white smoke from time to time...

That's it for now!

Nice to hear from you with the update

Be careful that your turbo doesn't overrun like mine did, it's horrible!!!! I was lucky to save the engine on mine by stalling it.
