  1. Adding 5 Led lights

    Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hehehe I’m going to use that quote 😎 Fuses; generally 1/3 greater than running current except for things like compressors that’s can draw big current on start up. 5x 48w = 240w 240/14v (lights on while driving) = 17A 17x 4/3 = 23A So 25A fuse ideal in this case, but 30 would be ok as the...
  2. Adding 5 Led lights

    Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Yep, link all the positives of the lights together from the 87 pin. There is no reason to use two relays, total is 240w, ie 17 amps. Most relays are rated 30 amps. You can if you want use two (no need though), just double up on all the above. Make sure you protect all the wiring, cover it in...
  3. Adding 5 Led lights

    Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Ok that’s easy. Using a normal (normally open) relay, ie with 2x 87 pins but NO 87a pin... 30 goes to +ve of battery via a fuse 87 goes to the lights (1 relay is fine, it’s only 17 amps draw for all five) 85 goes to earth, say an M6 captive near relay 86 goes to the switch. Other side of...
  4. Adding 5 Led lights

    Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Right, so they’re not work lights. They’re all forward facing for better vision at night, like spotties? if so they need to be switched with both a switch and via high beam. Do you want them all on with the switch (assuming hi beam is on),or different groups with seperate switches?

    It would help if you explained what you want to achieve, and perhaps put it in the auto electrical section???
  6. Ghost town ?

    Sierras are a dark art Marko, I admire anyone who can build them into weapons. Shame there’s not many around these days, would be a great toy I’d imagine!

    I think it stands to reason that if there’s a significant drop in people posting, surely there’s a corresponding drop in people reading? A similar percentage anyway. Look at trips area as one example, I used to lap that up, drooling over other people’s holidays and adding to my list of required...
  8. ZD30 to TD42 engine mount adapters

    Engine Conversions General
    Given the distance apart between the ZD and TD mounts, and that the TD is the best part of 400kgs, I’d be gobsmacked if an engineer would approve that, I wouldn’t do it in a pink fit to my own car! If it was a car I was planning to keep I’d want it done properly.
  9. How to chop your patrol into a dual cab step by step

    DIY Modifications & Accessories
    Yeah I just checked, I have them on Dropbox but I can’t edit old posts to put them back in and I’m buggered if I’m starting the entire thing from scratch...

    General Discussion
    Yeah I was going to do a thread in the conversion section, the step by step definitive guide to converting a patrol from ZD30 to a TD42, since it’s the most common conversion that gets done. A culmination of what I’ve learnt from doing my own, and sifting through countless threads on it, all...
  11. Central locking not working at all

    Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    How does a faulty rear actuator cause the remote to fail to operate the front doors?????
  12. Is it worth doing a quarter chop to a GQ?

    Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    I think it’s well worth it, my rear bar was made to suit chopped quarters, and it makes a huge improvement to the departure angle and minimizes chance of damage in that area. Not a particularly big job, good bang for buck.
  13. Central locking not working at all

    Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Is it factory or aftermarket???

    Obviously it got deleted, like it should have hours before 👍
  15. RD28 GQ Raitos

    Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    X2 RD28s have 4,625 diffs for a reason, changing that with 33s will give you less go, not more. Tyre pressures are worth a thousand driveline mods on sand dunes 👍
