  1. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hey everyone, Been a member for a while but this is my first post. So over the weekend I decided to pull apart most of the air con in the GQ and began cleaning the evaporator, I decided the best way to do this was to soak it in some water and bug off in a bucket. Left it for half a day and when...
  2. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    So, I've recently made the purchase of a GU for the purpose of taking it to the beach as well as offroading. I figured the best addition for my car before heading off on either endeavor would be a UHF since communication seems to be fairly important. So I've already hunted around the internet...

    Hi all, I have lurked around the forum for a long time but only delved into the Nissan camp about 18 months ago after owning 2 old holdens. My parents had a GQ since I was a baby for about 15 years and I've always loved the patrols. My current patrol is a 2009 Gu ST ZD30CRD with a 3 inch lift...
  9. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hi Guys, So bear with me, because I'm a newbie. Hoping to find some help! When I got my Mav a couple of months ago (first project 4wd, very excited and I'm sure you'll hear from me again), the only window that was working was the drivers, so I've put off sorting it out because I was happy! The...

  15. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    My 92 ST30 model seems to be lagging quite a bit when I first start her up... In fact, I have quite a time keeping her idling. Essentially to keep her running I have to pull out the manual choke and lock it in. Otherwise every time I slow to a stop it dies. I've tinkered with the idle screw, but...
