    Looks like it was a great trip guys, didn't see much use of the sexy radiator blinds, or was it easier to pull the radiators out or clean insitu with the 12V spray guns?

    Initial Tassie damage inspection report for the 26YO old GQ:
    Golden Oldie = Won
    Thousand Dollar Track = Two (pair)

    Alternator has come good thankfully for now

    Thankfully we all finally agreed to steer clear of Balfour Track this time around Philstar Mate!
    The blinds were specifically made for bow waving those long stretches of fibrous sludge that’s impossible to hose out.
    The relatively clean bog holes throughout ‘T$T’ just swamp around the back of the blind anyway whilst parked/stuck waiting for winch line hook ups to haul arse out as quick as possible

    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 yeah following you home was funny as turning from high beam to brown spots on low lol. . . And Dazs we're worse than yours lol. .

    Damage report for silver brumby both rear quarters and front right little dinted, all adds character but might try the footy trick on the left one. .







    Seats out carpet up with fan slowly drying the sludge. .



    Air freespool hose conviently held onto the end before spinning and destroying itself. .



    Alternator seems to be 100% after not being happy and radiator is all good after professional clean on site in the wilderness thanks to a beautiful river and Dazs on site pressure washer and shop compressor on hand

    Have done some more research on the sealed/water cooled alternators that V8 Toyoda’s desperately need out of the factory being sump design mounted
    Turns out they’re a 4 bolt block jobbie too like the sealed BMW jobbies we also missed whilst killing time on the ferry.
    Have found one mob that’s externally encasing standard alternators with approximately 1-1/12” hose vents, front, rear & side that I honestly reckon we should all NP.com.au explore further

    @MudRunnerTD Mate!
    Currently working on trying to find a way to create easily highway removable ‘winch horns’ atop of the new bullbar as you’ve kindly shown the Legendary pre-bog rope preparation length guesstimations with easier haul out fast skills

    Without horns, I became a tangled mess

    I do have two spare unused OEM Stealth spotlight plates welded behind the new top bar hoop and thinking that like the Polyurethane winch donkeys (aka dildos) two mini vertical Polyurethane donkey wrap ‘sticks’ (not big dicks) could flex forward on a super fast needed run out?
    Probably makes no sense, happy to draw a diagram if needed ?
