Hi guys my name is Shaun from the South West UK
I have owned my NV200 for just under a year and it's about time I started making some changes,. First thing was to sort out the front bumper and get some mesh in there to save the radiators etc
And while doing that I have added some spotlights too. Quite an easy job and thought you guys might be interested in what I have done so far.

Having problems uploading pics at the moment

Hi Shaun, Nice pics and thanks for sharing.
One question, it looks like you already have (what we call in the US) fog lamps. I have the cut-outs in my bumper for these but can't seem to find any lamps to fill them with. Maybe I can get them in the UK.

Thanks
Stephen

Hi Stephen been looking around for you and think your best bet is to have a look at EBay.com
there are some places in Hong Kong / China that have these fog lamps. There quite good prices and they do international postage too
They should fit ok as there is only a clip and 2 bolts that hold them on
Cheers Shaun

Cooling air intake grill

It just so happens that one of my projects today was to install wire mesh on the cooling air intake. I used 1/4", 23-Gauge galvanized steel hardware cloth (Sorry, not sure what the metric equivalent is). I installed it because I saw on another forum topic that a member had radiator damage due to a object impact. I did some research before installing the mesh and found information on a Corvette forum which went into detail about the "% of open area". Obviously placing anything in front of the radiator restricts the natural flow of air. The mesh I used is 81% open area. Some of the Corvette guys use mesh with open area as small as 66% supposedly without overheating issues.

The big question is... Why didn't the Nissan engineers install protective screens to begin with?
