    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.

    Don't get that sort of quality off the shelf old mate.... 9 months to design and manufacture a Tool that has lasted, what, 50 years and still works? Decent return on investment there :-)

    A good mate of mine is pretty handy with a lathe. I was admiring the soft face hammer he had made himself and was stoked when he said he would make one for me for $80. His had aluminium and plastic faces which he replicated for mine but he also threw in a brass striking face as well as a bonus......really happy with it and it will last me a lifetime!!!
