    I finally updated from my old black max air compressor (12 years old!) to something with a bit more oomph! Also took the chance to bring my tyre deflation and inflation into this millennia. And yes, there will be a couple of lockers going in at a future date.

    Had to add a bit of plate to the custom cargo barrier to handle the weight of that compressor! Thing weighs like 30 kilos.

    Today was the day for our Patrol's annual wash!

    When you are full time 'on the road' & travelling mainly on dirt roads washing the car seems a little pointless. However we will now be staying in one place for the duration of the wet season & have no need to use it as we have a couple of quads & a Landcruiser ute to use. I also have a gerni at my disposal. Last year 'she' had a gerni wash, but this year she got special treatment - gerni and CT18. Woohoo! Gone (at least for now) is the 'Cape patina' & the old girl is looking surprisingly white again. Not showroom condition of course, that would be a tad namby pamby, to say nothing of pretentious, but definitely a lot whiter than she has looked for quite a while.

    Patrol at Moreton. Tvan will get a wash once we have moved into the station homestead.

    Yesterday I had the 'repair to the repair' done on the Patrol. I'd had the swivel hubs done in Weipa last week, cost was I thought a reasonable $1440, I'd thought it might be a lot more up here on the Cape, but by the time I had driven the 130kms 'home' to Moreton Telegraph Station, the passenger side swivel hub was leaking , worse than when I'd taken it in. Sent them photos & they agreed to re-do it. Went to leave at 6:30am yesterday morning but found the battery wouldn't start the car. Cleaned terminals etc- no different. Battery was cactus (about 5 years old). Tested my jump start off the Aux batteries (at the turn of a switch) for the first time ever & it worked like a charm. Swivel hubs re-done & a new battery fitted. All good now.

    Finally got my patrol onto a truck for the journey back to WA, lucky I came back when I did looking at the numbers in Victoria today and I still do not have approval from SA health to drive back, I only applied for an urgent approval 5 weeks ago 😜

    What was I thinking. This is killing me. The worst instructions ever. I am making shit up as I go. I'm shooting a video to so hopefully it helps the next shmuck that has a crack. The bolt package is wrong. The instructions are literally Wrong! I have raided my supply of Metric bolts more than twice.

    Bloody Rhino Bar!! Bloody Hell!

    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.

    Finally fixed my bent door brackets and caved in front quarter panel today!

    Opening the car door in crazy winds on the beach at Tassie took the door screaming into the front quarter panel and bent the crap out of it.

    Lucky our warehouse guy is an ex panel beater so he brought in his tool of persuasiveness and fixed it.

    Not perfect but 10 times better than what it was!
