This was my old shorty that I decommissioned due to rust:

I had already lined up a 1985 MK Patrol Ute to swap the good gear from my shorty into. Air locked 4.6 diffs, stereo, ARB compressor, dual batteries etc.

The ute had done 190,000km and had a blown N/A SD33 and a 5 speed N/A gearbox.

As I picked it up

Cleaned up the engine bay a bit and deleted the passenger side battery tray to make room for a PatrolDocta 4" airbox and snorkel

Then it was like this for a bit, the head gasket blew on the rebuilt motor very quickly. 300km. I didn't rebuild it. The head was knackered and they just chucked new pistons etc in it but didn't recon the head.

So once I blew the head gasket I towed it up to my farm with the trusty LC76 V8 D4D ;)

Pulled the reconditioned head from my old SWB motor and proceeded strip the ute head off and install the shorty head.

Got it all going again and tested fitted the RTT - Note the dodgy mounting between cab and rhino rack :| No dice.

Also purchased a brand new ARB Deluxe high mount winch bar for it.

Purchased a nice big checker plate toolbox for tools, camping gear, whatever else...

Then I put new carpets in and got a compressor fridge as a centre console - Waeco CDF11 I think it is...

After all the greasy work was done...I decided it was time to give the paint some love.

So I spent an afternoon with a mate with some Meguires Ultimate Compound....

Wow!

Installed a new 2" lift and some extended shackles at the front.

Great truck mate. Geez that 4 poster was a bar and a half.. lol

Thanks mate, yeah the 4 poster is as original when it came off the show room floor!

I think with a polish up it would look brilliant - It just doesn't flow with any lines of....ANYTHING really haha!

I have ordered a new compressor wheel and housing for my turbo, so I hope to have some R and D done on that by the end of next week.
