    Ash's 2004 Patrol GU III TD42ti

    Hi everyone, my name's Ash and I live in Melbourne. I just got my first Patrol at the end of July and I'm loving it.
    This is my first 4x4. I got it as a tourer to take my wife and our two young girls away on trips.

    It came with a few goodies on it already, like the roof rack, Mickey Thompson classic II rims with 33s (285/75/R16), old man emu shocks, bull bar, spot lights, snorkel and a turbo back 3inch exhaust.

    First mod I did was the rear barn door extension bracket.
    I've also put in a flash lube catch can, which I'll share some photos of.

    This forum has been very helpful so far.
    Thanks,

    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.

    Cheers! I live in inner north-eastern Melbourne, but enjoy camping at the Murray and Boisdale near Maffra when we get the time.

    Custom bracket made from 3mm x 40mm flat aluminium bar. All using existing mounting holes in the car. Two points on the large flat black bracket and one threaded mount point in the body.

    Drain line fixed to the body, but easily removable to drain oil into a container for disposal.

    I had to use a few hose size converters as the catch can has 19mm inlet/outlets, the breather is 12.5mm and the intake is 16mm.
