    With working away it's unfortunatly not going to be a quick project, but that dose give me time to save up for the many many expensive parts I want

    The build log will be interesting to keep up with. Makes little difference what it is :)


    As for this...

    I've started with a 4.2 turbo witch is quite rare, however the whole factory turbo system will be goon in the bin.

    The 40 belongs to one of my brothers customers, all I know is it's in for an engine conversion, it's having a 1HD-FT fitted

    The only thing i never liked about them Patrol's is the front grill and headlight set up , it looks like they copied a kids drawing which is a contradiction in my own thinking because i love it for the full size Tonka toy look :crazy:

    image.jpeg i love the front of them, they are so simple, I really like how ruff and ready the patrol is. That is close to what I'd like to achieve

    Sadly other things have gotten in the way of this build, like my 105, I have still been collecting parts for this project, however it my end up being a MWB ute as the body is in a worst state than I originally thought.

    It’s one of the worst things about trolls, a rust free or manageable truck is few and far between.

    I think the trouble is they were squarely aimed at the roughnecks and battered around farms and the like so few survived . The 70 series is going the same way whereas the 80 and 90 series were better suited to the urban jungle and so good examples can still be found .

    Grab what you can while you can i say as we will soon all be running around on one trip disposable electric skateboards with the way things are going .

    And with the money earned from saving the planet we will soon be able to dump all the disposable crap they build nowadays on another planet .

    Like the patrol, my neighbour in Queenstown had a LWB high roof version which was huge compared to the 61
