    Apart from the rich issue above mate.. it's good.
    I do have a small niggle with the rear passenger door..
    Once you lock and unlock the doors, the outside handle doesn't seem to engage untill you open the door from the inside..
    And there are a once piece mechanism and bloody expensive so I'll get in there one weekend and have a look before I buy a new one..

    Tegans last car was a dualis, the rear inner handle was broken. Replacement part was way more than I wanted to pay but noticed my mates navara had exactly the same handles. Price for a nav was less than half the dualis one. What I'm getting at is there are cross compatible parts between the models and they vary in price depending on the car lol. Hope this helps mate

    Am I getting this right? The pathy is a two handed operation to open the rear doors? Pull door handle on the c pillar with one hand and push the door open with the other?

    Lost me?
    Single handed just the outside handle is up on the door frame not in the door body like normal.
    You can see the handle inline with the rear window.
    The inside handle is in the normal spot.

    Actually come think of it, rear doors are generally a 2 hand operation arent they? Pull the handle with one hand and push it open with the other? Fark I dont know.

    Just had a quick look and yes your right but seems to be rod driven like similar to the patrol, but up high.
    The pathy is cable driven from both directions.

    Hey crew long time now post. How life changes can swallow time up....
    The pathy is still going strong.
    Not much to report but finally fitting the brake controller. And God daym these ti's are full...
    It's been a battle but like the gu it's an easy clip together set up so after I worked out the pieces it was all out in no time.
    Went the redarc tow pro 3 this time. I think plans for this car are long term. So not going cheap.
    Tucked it high in the driver's kick pannel and switch in a handy spot Just below the steering wheel.
    Cable has been run down inside the chassis and just need a new plug on the back to wire it into..

    Unfortunately still haven't sold our mt gambier property so progress everywhere has been slow.

    But parents bought us a kings 2.5x2.5 awning for us for an early chrissy pressy.
    So that'll be fitted over the break.

    Apart from that love the petrol..
    Cheers
