Washed and polished it after about 6 months of being lazy. For a 27 year old vehicle the paint is in excellent condition. People say Patrols have bad paint but I suppose living inland all its life has a lot to do with it.

As my mate learn't when a branch went thru his rear window one night.

I did this... Then realised I was missing the hook bar for the jack so had to jack it up with a screw driver. Was a new experience at lease.

Then there's no problem, unless they went to town and tinted the lens as well.

They left enough scrap pieces that I could tint the camera ha ha
It's weird driving it at the moment because it's so dark inside. Before this it had no tint at all

Looks great and if I had a wagon I'd do exactly the same. It'll be soooo much cooler inside.
