Step 3 complete - Spotlights installed

If we can have a forum for the Amarok, I see no reason why we cant have one for Daihatsu, which is part owned by Toyota anyway.

Hi Darryl, Thanks. The roof lights are basically just a plastic mould with 4 normal oval spots in. I was looking for them for about a year and finally found them at Autostyle. They had none in stock at the time but they were able to get one for me. Check their website under lighting, around the bottom of the last page. They have 2 types, the Oval ones I have and round. +- R1000.00. If you are able to get hold of them, just replace all the wiring as the original wiring on the one I have could not take the current. To damn thin… Good luck.

Francisco, that lighting setup is real impressive.

I've been looking at those lights on the roof are you satisfied with the reflectors on used in those lights??

Your Terios is getting serious attitude.

Hi Heinrich, I am satisfied with them because they are not made of plastic. The lenses are also made of glass. They only have 55watt globes in them. I was thinking of replacing the globes with 100watt’s but the spots in front are going to get 100watt globes so I don’t see the point. I am working towards my Terios being the most equipped Terios in SA. I have spoken with many people with regards to the lack of power due to it only being a 1500. Engine compartment size is the problem and I have been told to think about putting a 1.9 TDI engine in as it is small enough to fit. I must admit I don’t like VW but apparently the engine will work.

Hi Darryl. All I see on the bonnet is 4 small reflections but nothing to complain about as it does not affect my vision. The biggest problem is that it lights up the top part of my windscreen. I must slightly adjust my lights still and that should be sorted out as well as the reflection on the bonnet.

I wonder if it can be mounted on the front of the bonnet?

I am sure it can be mounted on the bonnet, it has a slight curve but it can be overcome.

Francisco you might want start considering upgrading your electrical system as well do deal with the additional load from all those lights. It really looks awesome though

I am in the process of installing a duel battery system as well as replacing the original batery with a bigger, stronger batery. Any other sugestions? I am building my car up by myself and need the advice. This is the first time and as they say "theres a first time for everything". :beg:

Meer battery krag gaan nie jou oplossing wees nie want die altenator moet nog harder werk om die ligte te trek en die batterye vol te hou. Onthou die battery word net gebruik om die starter te draai (vandaar die dik kabels), as die enjin loop trek alle elektriese toebehore van die altenator af. Jy sal moet kyk na 'n opgradering van jou ekektriese stelsel.
