Good day Gents.

So last week my Patrol found itself at Viper exhaust for a full system branches and exhaust. The guys there did and awsome job and im really happy with the end result. a deeper exhaust note that I can actually hear. Fuel economy may suffer as i can't get enough of the loud pedal...lol. everything is neatly tucked away as I asked so hopefully I won't break this one off.

I also stopped in at Peter to pick up a custom baseplate he made up for me. As always Peter delivered another top quality baseplate that fits perfectly, will hold up well and looks good. Thanks Peter.

Test fit yesterday so off to get it painted. Some before and after pics below

CheersImageImage

Thanks Mal Hannes.

As you can see from the missing paint on the lower bashplate I dont think I'm using the rite stuffImage a local workshop does the painting for me so not sure what they using. But I touch it up with a rattle can spray paint

What is the function of that air vent on the bonnet?

It sits right above the turbo & draws hot air out, the louvres are also functional.

Thank you.

Even without the turbo I find it is very hot under the bonnet so I do think that will be very helpful.
