Picked up vinyl strips to replace the carpeting under the toilet. Really? Carpet under a toilet? Sometimes I wonder what folks in the design center where thinking at the time.
I will say one thing; it's the first time in my life I've spent $5.00 to replace the bathroom floor in anything. That I could get used to.

I have a pipe run cover that is carpeted behind our toilet. As you say "what were they thinking?" .... on the "to do" list.

Installed a wifi ranger. I need a good wifi signal when I travel for work. Having an outdoor antenna will certainly pick up weaker signal my computer can't.
Next is the refrig chimney mod.

Fridge removed, heater removed, ceiling torn out. The start of demolition has started.

Did you go LED or stay original?

I would be happy to go with the bumper just as it turned out after all that hard work. Great job.

Original. I'm trying to keep the Titan as original as possible!

Wired in a new battery isolator, they sure are different now. And got 90% of a rearview and sideview camera system wired.

Depends on the type. The original one in my 1978 is the same as a brand new one you can still get. I have seen diagrams from the 70s for this model and they show a picture of what it has in it, so odds are it's the original.

I have a spare I bought new in 2006 which I had in a conversion van which i put an extra battery in for camping. I pulled it all out before i sold it so it was back to factory configuration. It's identical to the one my 78 has.

Cubey,

http://www.wirthco.com/documents/200...diagram150.jpg

I can't post pictures, but here's a schematic of the installation. All you do is run a wire to the positive terminal of the battery, a small ground wire, and then a wire to the auxiliary battery.

No #4 wire to the isolator and back.
It's light, too, much like the new battery chargers.
