    fixed window fitting on my GQ LWB

    Today i pulled the slide rear side windows out of my patrol it took just 1 hour and 15 minutes including set up locate tools and clean windows ,i use venetian blind cord to pull the rubbers in on the first window i used wd 40 to lube the rubber and rope to help slide the rubber in place but on the second window i used car wash as the wd 40 made the rope to hard to handle ,i picked up the fixed windows on ebay for $250 inc rubbers the actual car frame had a bit of dirt between it and the rubbers but no rust which worked out perfect heres a few photos of the progress i did with the help of my 12 year old son

    my second and third effort for today was to install my modified hyundai v6 air box to my snorkel , followed by fitting the new correct hi beam turn signal switch ,yay now i dont have to turn of the indicator manually (if i remember) evry time i turn right ,Now to do front and rear pads and rotors ,
    All thats left to get is the front shocks and steering stabilizer and i think i am done ,

    pngboy45, they come out surprisingly easy. just start gently pulling the interior rubbers away and the window will remove externally. its often the removeable windows that rust out, and the body of the patrol is in top condition. cheers,
