Adding Hella Micro DE Halogen Projector Fog Lights to a Ram ProMaster - In my world, a proper fog light must:1) have a sharp cutoff: lots of light below a line, very little above2) be mounted as reasonably low as it can be3) be able to be on without the normal headlights or running lights4) have yellow light (yes, I know this is old think) After wandering around southern Washington on a night of alternating fog and snow, I was quite frustrated at how useless the OEM fog lights of the Promaster were. Some years ago, we put some Hella Micro DE Halogen Projector Fog Lights on our 1975 Super Beetle project. Details...
Installing Arm Rests - We wanted armrests on the front seats of our new Promaster. I have a glitchy back, and I really like being able to support my back a bit on the armrests when driving. The driver seat has a right-side armrest, but the left side “armrest’ is built into the door and about a mile and a half away from my elbow. The passenger seat does not have any armrests at all.
Propane Remote Fill - Since the propane tank is pretty well tucked under the van, we definitely wanted a remote fill kit. For this part of our build, we used the Nashfuel Propane Remote Fill Kit with Mounting Bracket.
Mounting a propane tank under our Ram3500 van - At this point in our build, we do not have the entire layout perfectly planned and pinned down, but we were pretty sure of how the propane tank was going to end up so that work could be done before the interior layout was settled.
Rear View Camera - It is pretty hard to use the rear-view mirror in a van without windows. We decided to take a shot on a rear-view mirror camera to improve our vision.
