    Assuming that both of you are here for more than the manuals I will comment here. Who knows.

    Nathan, Hamo got it right. Nissan have already done the conversion for you mate. The MK and early GQ are very close to identical anyway mate that the major change was the coils! Significant change too. The panels near swap over they are that close.

    If your head long commuted to the MK (not sure why given the GQ is Awesome) then buy a GQ rolling chassis for under $500 and dump your MK body on it. By far the cheapest way to get it done.

    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.

    Yeah ta Rusty, i was on the iphone and could not really see that but on the computer now an see clearly. Hamo has been here a long time. He is a Lurker rather than a Poster and saw the pointlessness of the above conversion, Thanks Hamo.

    Maybe Nathan will come back one day? He was done before i got here.
