    I made mine back in 1988 at school. Made up the plastic handle, the lot! And I still use it.

    That is sik mate. With the stop setup he has ans you feeding your stock across the belt it will work very well.

    His slowest setting was 6mph which is 10kmh. You might find a little faster will be better. Cant wait to see it is action mate.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I found that an old camera tripod leg is great for the times you need an adjustable pole to press the pedal to check the stop lights or trailer socket when you are alone.

    That's a great idea I usually just grab a stick and adjust with the seat but that much better

    Internally wire wound industrial diesel hose stretcherer out of a set of woeful old bolt cutters bound for the scrap heap today:

    Inserted and levered 10mm at a time found the wire slip through the hose inner molding until presto....the prick finally fit on the tank
