History
2nd fastidious owner (who has dreams of cleaning the diff housings with a toothbrush after driving on a dirt road - please don't tell anyone that... :) )
1988 Nissan GQ (Red)

Modifications

Drivetrain
TD42N/A - barely run in at 215,000k's. Averages 10.9L/100. Oil and filters religiously changed by current owner at 4,950k intervals with Shell Rimula-X, most other filters at 9995k.

Standard 5 speed gearbox, which really needs a '2.5' for most hills - you're either slugging it up in 2nd, or changing back to 2nd 'cause 3rd is too high. Makes for a slow trip for those following until passing lanes appear...

Transfer case has probably been engaged four times since 1988... :)
Interior
Standard Vinyl/Woven Cloth DX, seating five in comfort and six with a squeeze.

Moulded dash carpet.

Deep dish foot mats keep any mud (as if) from the standard vinyl flooring. Plush carpet mats used on-road.

65 Litre plastic tub for damp/wet gear after kayaking (keeps the rear vinyl dry).

Custom folded flat steel centre-console addition with 4 x 1" RAM-mount balls for mounting various gadgetry for the nerdy drivers' guidance.

LED dash-lights.
Exterior
New H4 Headlights, Factory Alloy Front Bar, Old 'Hazy Lens' Driving Lights, Roof Racks, Lots of Polish and Wax, Occasional Dirt and Bird Faeces (both quickly removed).

Shiny new tow-ball.
Audio
The driver... :)
Wheel and Tire
Cheese cutting split rims, the ultimate combination - lightweight, safe tyre repair and hi-speed cornering...
