Not so concerned about a fire. While they get hot, they'd need to be somewhere in the 400*C-500*C range before they could ignite anything, noticing surface temperatures of 90*C-100*C so far on the 6ohm resistors, but I'll continue to keep an eye on them. I'm more concerned with melting anything plastic near by. Of course, this is a bandaid solution. I would like to modify the CEM/REM in a way to eliminate the warnings, but I'm unsure of a solution for a 2005 and I haven't had the time to look into it myself

Some resistor temperatures. Temperatures taken with hood/panel closed with enough time to reach max values, 4ways on, brakes held, and the engine running to maintain 13.8V. Readings taken with a Fluke 325 Type K probe.

Outside Temperature - 2C

Front -

6ohm (outter) low beam - 136C
8ohm (inner) signal - 131C
Plate - 110C
Ambient - 31C

Rear

8ohm signal - 85C
8ohm brake - 100C
Plate - 75C
Ambient - 39C

They are running hot, but are still what I consider safe and acceptable, just as long at you don't touch the . Outside temps are low so I'll measure them again once it warms up.

BTW.

Happy New Year

The resistors are mounted inside an aluminum heat sink and I mounted them to the plates with thermal paste to aid with heat dissipation, which seems to be working well. A larger heat sink would make for a bulkier install, it would be much easier to split the load by wiring two lower value resistors in series, or two higher value resistors in parallel.

How to remove a steering wheel at the junkyard in three steps.



Dang, the column is locked. Can't access the screws, and it's freezing...

Step 1


Step 2


Step 3

That's frustrating. Or, one of the airbag clips will pop, but the other one doesn't.

If you come across any black mesh shifter trim in your JY travels, let me know.

So i wanted to get your input on the subframe lift.

Adding an inch, would you think C70/P80 120mm bolts would do?

M14X120?

And what size bolts are you using for your strut spacer?

They are class 8.8 bolts that are blackened. If Volvo supplies the size you need from another application then go ahead and use it, otherwise a bolt supplier should have what you need.

Unsure what sizes I'll need for the spacers, but whatever I chose will equal the original length + spacer height.
