    SWB GQ Body Swap - Looking for replacement

    Gday,

    Looking for a SWB GQ body to perform a body swap.

    Our ol’ family Nissan has cancer... thought about repairing but would prefer a clean start / new life by trying to source another body.

    Mainly in need of a replacement shell. Current body has rust in floor, door sils and firewall.

    Let me know if you can help out.

    Look forward to posting photos of the project.

    Cheers
    Luke

    Hey mate I recently did a body swap last winter on my GQ lwb. Pretty much same situation had rust throughout, considered repair but sourcing a clean rust free body is a much better option. I sourced mine through patrolapart, was lucky got a petty much perfect cab with no rust whatsoever and was pretty reasonable really. I reckon give them a call see what they've got. Don't regret doing it was a heap of fun and now have a nice fresh GQ, there's a thread on here too if you want some info. . .

    Has been so much fun working on the GQ, very impressed with it off-road, pumped to keep in getting out and about camping

    Tinted back windows


    Loves the beach:


    I’m yet to give it a paint touch up, due to lack of space at my joint, but I’ll get round to it with help from a mate I’m sure.

    Reverse lights not working found that the wiring harness looks shagged, so will see about getting another
