    Hey guys, here's my latest half arsed attempt at a video.



    Thanks to everyone for the support for this idea.

    We are working on a tray to fit inside the box next, plus some snazzy custom tie-downs using a MilSpec quick release clip.
    Yeah I've seen they have a pretty large fan base on Facebook lately with some high profile fans! You guys are doing an awesome job.
    I will buy another box before our next holiday in January, very keen to see your custom tie down system though as we will be packing two on the roof. Keep us posted on those for sure!

    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.

    Haha! Would have made a great ad for the box right there mate! Might have to set that one up and video it myself.
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.
