STYLESIDE REMOVAL
SCVA has the equipment and expertise to remove the existing Tub body and replace it with an alloy tay of your choice. The existing lights in the Tub body are not suitable to use with the new tray, so we will supply a new set of lights and connect them to your existing wiring. You have the option to up grade to LED lights, these eliminate the need to replace light bulbs over time. NEW REAR LIGHTS, LED LIGHTS, CLEARANCE LIGHTS
Please notify us if your vehicle has RPA (Rear park assist) some times called "reversing sensors" because if your tray over hangs their existing position it can interfere with their performance. We need to remount the sensors on special brackets on the tray, and advise you that you should familarise your self with the change of use the first time you drive the vehicle after the tray is fitted. Some vehicles also require front clearance lights on the front bumper, because the existing park light is too far in from the edge of the vehicle. Clearance lights are not needed if you have a front bullbar because the bullbar will have lights incorporated.

Springs & Suspension

Sunday, 23 July 2017 12:04:20 pm Australia/Sydney

A lot of people think that car suspension is just for creating a smooth ride, but did you know, it also has other important functions such as keeping your vehicle in control on the road and your passengers safe. The underside of your car is made up of a number of important mechanical parts that keep your car in control and on the road, struts, chassis, shocks, springs and torsion bars all work together to absorb the impact and energy from bumps, curves, and holes in the road. You may not have thought too much about it, but these parts need to withstand a huge amount of stress over long periods of time. This means they can become subject to wear and fatigue over time.Read More

3 Surprise advantages you didn’t think of when installing a snorkel.

Tuesday, 2 May 2017 2:19:06 pm Australia/Sydney

A Snorkel for your 4wd will be one of the modifications on the top of your priority list if you plan of taking the road less traveled and getting the most out of your 4wd adventures. Its name is a give away, a 4wd snorkels function is to improve off-road performance by lifting the air intake to roof height making for safer water crossings in deeper water. What is often forgotten though is that there are other less talked about advantages that come with the installation of a 4wd snorkel.

Surprise Advantage 1

Cooler denser air

When you install a snorkel you effectively lift the air intake of your 4wd from the front of the engine bay facing forward to roof height. The air up higher will be cooler, and cooler air means denser air. Why is cool dense air an important performance enhancer? Weather your 4wd runs on diesel or petrol one of the most important factors to engine performance is the air/fuel mixture your engine uses to create combustion and guess what, cool dense air will combust more efficiently! Meaning a more efficient better running engine.

Surprise Advantage 2

Less dust

Anyone that has driven off-road in Australian will be all too familiar with dust, red dust, and lots of it. Fitting a snorkel to your 4wd will not only make water more difficult to enter, but also greatly reduce the quantities of dust that would otherwise pass into your air intake. This should reduce wear and tear on your 4wd engine, especially on your air filter that wears the brunt of this dust. This means savings on maintenance and a longer life for your filter.

Surprise Advantage 3

Air ram effect

A snorkel will also include an ‘air ram’ the air ram sits at the top of the snorkel it creates a ram effect improving engine performance, it also separates any moisture in the air by passing air through a 90 degree bend keeping moisture out of your precious engine.

So there you have it, a 4wd snorkel, more than just an upgrade for water crossings.

Here at Sunshine Coast Vehicle Accessories we have a huge range of parts to optimize your 4wd experience. If you have any questions or would like to see our full range of products contact us, or come in to our showroom, we have experts on call to answer any questions and assist in any 4wd needs you might have!

What are Weight Distribution Systems?

Monday, 31 October 2016 1:06:31 pm Australia/Sydney

What are Weight Distribution Systems?

Weight distribution systems are designed to assist with the restoration of the original geometry of the tow vehicle as close as possible to that which it was prior to the coupling of the trailer. It does this by transferring the weight from the rear of the towing vehicle to the front wheels of the towing vehicle and the wheels of the towed trailer.

Van fit outs – Wall & Floor Lining

Wednesday, 26 October 2016 8:19:10 am Australia/Sydney

SCVA has been creating van fitouts for the last 20 years, and the range of options has expanded to become extremely customisable. From wall and floor linings to rollout drawers and everything in between we can customise your van so that it works more efficently for your needs.

Wall and floor lining offers protection for the cargo space in your van - in the long run, keeping the resale value - in the short term, creating a smooth even surface to build from, reducing road noise and protecting exterior panels from dents made by freight.

There are a range of options to suit all budgets and trade requirements.

Rubber Mats
An inexpensive lining material, available in vehicle specific shapes and sizes. Easily fitted by the driver, offering a nonslip surface for cargo and simply roll up and discard when changing vehicles.

Ply Lining
Basic ply lining comes in pine look, 6mm for walls and 12mm flooring, cut to size.

Pre-cut high quality 6mm wall lining
Comes with a light grey vinyl coat and a 9mm profile cut ply floor with anti-slip coating.
The wall lining is also available in precut panels to line the inside panel of sliding doors and bulkheads.

Mesh wall panels
Mesh panels can be installed on the inside walls to protect exterior panels from freight dents and glass windows from being broken. Also valuable for courier vans and taxi trucks to tie loose items and stop goods moving in transport

Carpet
Adding a layer of quality marine grade carpet takes away the commercial look of van cargo space. It also adds an extra protective layer over the ply saving it from unsightly dents & scratches.

Spray Lining
Tough spray on coating can be applied over ply or straight onto existing vehicle contours.  It provides a smooth scratch resistant finish impervious to fluids.  Excellent for animal carrying fitouts, also ideal for painter etc.
