    Meet da Mav!

    Hi folks, just thought I’d chuck a “diary” of my latest purchase.

    Been wanting to get into 4x4-ing for best part of 2019 and I’ve finally pulled the trigger. She’s 1989 DA Maverick in Blue over Grey, TB42 Straight petrol manual, not much else to say.

    It’s the first car I’ve bought (I’ve bought somewhere in region of 20 cars over the years) without stereo system which suits me seeing I’m Deaf so if my passengers want some racket, I could plonk a set of muddies and drive it on black top. Oh and I’ve got a CB radio but no antenna anywhere lol.

    Now to gather parts in preparation for roadworthy, I’ve complied a following list here;

    - Windscreen and rubbers.
    - Tyres.
    - Steering wheel column cover.
    - Grill (more the bit where it slides in radiator support).
    - Swivel hubs, Will try to get lokka while I’m at it.
    - Steering wheel, very twist...
    - Flares, I’m more inclined to get some sort of rubber from Clark rubber and make flares and mud flaps in one.
    - Windscreen wipers
    - Fix the door handle, doesn’t open on RHS rear.

    There’s a picture, if I can figure how Tapatalk stuff.


    Gonna chuck a set of 33’s, snorkel and maybe thicker rear swaybar and delete front swaybar for now and learn how to drive slow and tall car after many fast cars including 10x Skylines (including 4 GTR’s!) and others.

    Do feel free to chuck up suggestions here.

    Went and grabbed a set of Maxxis Bighorn in 33x12.5x15 for a song. Apparently 50% worn but looks like plenty by my eyes.

    Think you better start a build thred of your own
    then every one can follow your mods. not all look
    at the intros. But we all love looking at pics of Patrols being modded
    Oh yeah

    Bought few stuff I need for roady.



    Chasing a bit to attach the grill to radiator support or just buy some sort of clips.

    Once I have some rubber lokka, front swivel gaskets and bearing kit, then I’ll get greasy with a mate who is helping me.
