    Ah no worries. Yes they have a fridge in the car too and where happy with an internal fridge. Had a good look at it at cape Jaffa. The only one on the road. There are some teething issues but the build quality is impressive. They are heading back to the dealer next week to hopefully sort through some of the issues. I was less than impressed with the annex/awning! They need to have another go at that!!.

    Wrong place for this chat. Sorry @FNQGU happy to chat via pm though @TimE cheers
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    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.

    Hi Guys,

    We've been forced into a bit of a price rise scenario to try and make ends meet. Bit unfortunate, but that's life.

    If anyone from the Forum is interested in the boxes though, make sure to contact me direct and I'll work out what we can do.

    Hope you are all having a great Australia Day weekend - pissing rain in Cairns although we are still managing kids sleepovers and steaks on the BBQ.

    Packing food in these boxes is great, but I just discovered that they fit tall bottles standing upright!
    If you line them up with the internal ribbing of the lid they not only fit, but keep the bottle upright even if the box is thrown around a bit.
    This realisation made me really happy when we were packing bottles that had already been opened.
    These photos show tall and standard wine bottles.
    Another practical win for this design.

    Yep, it's what I call the third tank. It prevents the wife from drinking my beers!

    Happened to personally oversee that measurement... Would you believe a 1125 of Bundy also stands there nicely besides a bottle of Jameson...
