    I'm just amazed it hasn't returned to earth as red oxide, Patrols didn't reallly have the best reputation for rust until the GQ, actually none of the Nissan commercials did.

    With my dad's pootrol the rust wasn't in the Nissan, it was in the shitty aftermarket canopy that were dealer or Nissan Australia fitted.

    The rest of the thing was bullet proof, aweful slow, but bullet proof.

    Oh, and stop updating, makes me go and look on gumtree and carsales every time and have stupid thoughts about these things.
    Lols, non existent is exactly the word. Like there must be a blown line or some such as it was straight to the floor and that was it.

    And this'll be the last for a while again sadly. Although... last I jumped on scumtree I found a pretty rough but working one running a 302 for not too much...

    Heh, you should see the parts car I picked up.. Turns out the environment can be a cunt of a thing. As per the good one though, right place and they seem to last well. Wrong place and the chassis rails rust clean through.
