As above - if anyone can recomend a split charge kit which is pretty cheap - that'd be great and somewhere to get centre caps for rs6 reps?

Cheers Dudes/Dudets!! :ILU:

Main dealer for centre caps, can't imagine they will be overly expensive ?

If not then try 01702 545689 they will have them.

Dont buy a split charge system buddy, they are only wires and a 4 pin relay...
Just get them from your local car parts dealer, like halfrauds then use tis as a guide ;)

Ye cool - would you recomend any specific fuse board? I also mean because it's a 110a will i need a specific relay to ensure the system works correct? Am i making sense - cos i aint got a scooby bout electrics! Think that'll be a job for the old man!! I:

no real specific fues box dude, as mine is an Ex AA van i had one already built in the engine bay so i used that.
depends how many things you want to run off the leisure battery, something like this would be fine:

Dosnt matter what type of battery you are using, just better to get plenty of fuse's in there ;)

i dont think original caps will fit the replica alloys, i know on mine they dont, differnt fitting on the back, its due to copyrights and coping the vw/audi alloys,

i bought a cap for mine off ebay for 6 quid a few months back, just kept checking till i foiund the right one, as many reps are differnt to each others on the caps too, so dont all fit each others

hope this helps

you can get a standard relay with a 30 amp fuse built in from Halfords - add wiring and a few connectors - there's yer split charger - total cost a tenner or less. always feed your circuits off the battery via fuses - safety first !!
