General Information

Big Bertha
Y61 Patrol, wagon.
KR2 Dark Titanium Metallic
Not sure, weird mix of basic and luxury options.
This 'Trol was used by its first owner as a daily grocery getter without any care for maintenance until it finally just quit on him.
When I bought it the TD42 started right up after a thorough check up and service. It was stored in a dusty garage for some years and had no rust or missing parts. From there I have been repairing, tinkering, upgrading and offroading to my hearts content.
7 seater with LSD, Dual A/C - climate control, sun roof and around 270.000 km.
This seemingly never ending project has a restomod vibe with as much original parts as possible.

To get it somewhat presentable, safe and drivable again, besides minor issues and mechanical upgrades, this has been done so far:

Fuel system rebuilt
Brakes rebuilt
Gearbox, differentials, swivel hubs, etc. rebuilt
Body mount rubbers replaced
Door, window and pedal rubbers replaced
Replaced window regulators
Serviced sunroof
A/C serviced
Stripped the complete interior at least 3 times to wash it and dry in the sun. It finally became clean enough for me to notice the seats and carpet were beige and not moldy grey.
Repaired worn out driver seat
Replaced a horrible leather steering wheel with a nice used one and installed a fresh new leather shifter knob (Nissan leather durability is not great)

.......other stuff..

...and hopefully more to come.

I will add pictures of the result soon.
