I've been watching this build an envying your skills. Sad to see this patrol leave Oz but congrats on your move. What do you do for a living?

A subtle southern cross decal on your patrol might be a nice reminder of home.

If you really miss the VE you can replace it with the new Chevy SS.

hey John, it will be good to show them what a good truck the Patrol is and what they are missing out on.
I do have my eye on a new Camaro

Today i managed to replace the old steering wheel that rolls on the top. Most owners know what i am talking about.

This is the wheel i started with
Step one is to remove the horn ring on the back of the wheel. It is held in with 4 screws

This is the piece.

Step to is to trim the excess as shown

I used a series 4 GU patrol wheel. These are an airbag wheel so you have to get the airbag removed. I got mine from the wreckers who removed the airbag trigger for me without exploding it and wrecking the centre

Ok Disclaimer time! Please get the airbag removed by someone who knows what to do and know how to remove it. Don’t try it yourself. Airbags are very dangerous and can kill.



This is a picture of the airbag before it was removed. The trigger part is in the centre and the technician removed the four nuts and he disposed of it properly so i did not have to worry about it



The horn ring will fit on the back with a bit of trimming then screwed in from the front

also fitted bigger brakes from a 4.8GU patrol. this involved front rotors, callipers, master cylinder and booster



the oil return line from the turbo was touching the bulge for the shock tower on the passenger side. so I cut the bulge out and fitted some conveyor belt to cover the hole. not the best looking thing but t works

well it has been a big couple of weeks since I was last on here
the biggest achievement is the alloy 140ltr tank I made for the rear.





this allowed me to then get the 3 inch exhaust fitted





then the ARB bulbar had to be modified. the bar had to be lifted to accommodate the 2 inch body lift





and the ends had to be cut off shorter to suit the bigger wheel arches so I can fit 35 or 37 inch tyres





time for some creature comforts so Recaro seats replace the crappy factory units

Just curious why you fitted the body lift?

I am not a fan of body lifts either and this is the first one I have fitted. but to fit the dual transfer cases I was told it was needed
