Post by Steve Ward » Wed Mar 05, 2008 10:07 am

Hi Guys,

This is my 2005 patrol that i have done up, it has been totally fitted out. It has a 3" matra stainless exhaust with diff locks warn 1000lb winch, 2 " lift with tough dog shockers, I run 2 autotec fridges with 2 80w solar panels 3 batterys, draw system in the back so is totaly fitted out for camping.

I recently pulled out the turbo, fuel pump and injectors and upsized them and added a 2 stage Mitsubishi turbo, has gone from 114 kw on the diff to 200kw, has some serious grunt , will pull 150kph in 4th am am just adding the latest pioneeer DVD stereo with reversing cameras, IPod connection etc in it so the sounds will be good.

Also is my new Gold star boat that I just brought a few months ago.

Hi Rusty
you definately need to go east if the wind is going to get up, they have a 30 mile limit on the comp so not sure if mondrain is out side of that, it would be close. i have got my photos worked out so will see what i have and send a few in,
Wish i was home for the comp myself, but 3 weeks in exmouth in may is going to be good
