    I know there has been discussion about this before but nothing recent, I’m going to buy a complete rear end off another coil patrol to convert my leafy, and I know it’s not as easy as it sounds.

  3. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hey guys I have just sold my patrol and am looking for a new Y61 in the UK. I have found one which is a ZD30 but has been personally converted to a TD42.
