    I still haven't done my set up outside, but I do like the idea of the led. I need to pinch this one. Thanks daz...

    That was bizarre!! So zooming in it was actually a pic of @MB s Trailer solenoid that he fitted the warn remote too. I have no idea how that imported to my quote. Strange. I have fixed it. Sorry Dave, nothing to see here mate.
    @AB mate those photos keep resetting back to the pics from MB?? very very strange. i have swapped them 4 times. I took a screen shot of the pic Code if your interested.

    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.

    So those are very old photos of my front setup. I still run the Marker light at that location and it works great. Back in the day though you couple not buy LED Strip lighting. You could simply glue strip lighting under the motor near the earth bolt facing down. Simple and easy. wire it to the winch isolator so it is always on when the winch has power.

    Fitted new lights over the long weekend, got rid of the cheap 4wd supacentre ones on the roof and bullbar and replaced them with lights from Stedi, 11.5” light under the top hoop of the bullbar and 32” on the roof. These lights are so much brighter (the one on the bullbar puts out as much light as the 30” I used to have on my roof)





    On Sunday went to Mt Disappointment with my son in his 2.8 and a mate in his ZD30 GU, drove straight to the ladder and aired down.






    Less than 5 minutes later I was hanging off the end of my winch rope lol, freespool is amazing and makes a solo winch on flat ground so easy. Then turned around to winch my son out, the GU wanted to use his winch so he came after us and winched out.



    Then we drove up to the rocky rutted section, got out to have a look and make an assessment to the best way up.

    We all got up to the top, I drove straight up, my son had to back up and give it a few goes and the GU straight up. But.....

    Started hearing a really bad scrape out of the GU, nursed it to a camping area that ended up being packed so started the climb out over the ridge line. Boost had dropped away completely and EGTs were skyrocketing. So put a strap on and I towed it up to the main road where we had lunch waiting for a tow truck, 3 hours later the big GU was on a tow truck.



    My son and I did a few more tracks and then headed home.

    Went and had a look at the GU last night, pulled the intake off and the turbo cartridge is just about non existent, mates buying a new turbo and I’ll fit that up and then hit the tracks again!!
    Just another Blue over Silver GQ with another TD conversion

    Looking good mate. Those big holes look hideous. Nothing worse than sitting in that I reckon. Can almost see the $$$$ floating away!! Old mate in the GU is testament to that. 4 or 5 Alternators and 3 starter motors later and I am fully over that little activity. Lol not withstanding stripping the inside out to dry out. Lol.

    Didnyoy find those pics in My thread mate. Tried hard to embed them here for you mate, sorry.
