Sjoe, netjies, waar het jy die yskas opgespoor? Ek kyk met groot belangstelling, dankie.
Jong die plek se naam is flex adventures in die kaap (https://flexadventures.co.za). Dis nie baie groot nie, maar is baie lig en kan tot -20 gaan. En is gemaak om in 'n voertuig vas te sit (het 'n baseplate waarin dit vas klip. Maar het 'n arm lening, 3 USB Poorte en wireless cellphone charging. 3 Jaar waarborg.

So gaan bietjie check hoe om dit in die 4.8 in te sit. Die handrem is die grootste bekommernis, maar die yskas is maar so 22cm in breedte

Hulle het 'n special op die model gehad, was R3999. Toe moes ek maar net spring vir die voordeel van 'n paar koud Biere voor

Daarsy, yskas is in, wil nog net die gleuf langs die kant toemaak en nog n kussingtjie voor op dit wat kan afhaal as mens n selfoon wil charge. Ek sou sy yskas bietjie voorentoe gehad het, maar dit het te veel gate gelos in die console. Toe dit bietjie terug geskyf en presies ingepas met die cupholders en al. Nie die grootste yskas nie maar maak koud soos n bom en was nie te duur nie

So I bought this 1998 Pateol 4.5 GL from Petri at end of 2019 after really begging him. On the condition that he will buy it back if I am not happy. So I had it for a month or three but was not sure if it was really the right vehicle for me. So I called Petri and asked him if he wants it back because he really liked the vehicle. True to his word he took it back and refunded me in full.
He then sold it to a guy who wanted it for a specific trip but with Covid it didn’t come off. So he traded it back at Petri for a car. In the mean time I was having seller’s remorse and when I saw it was back at Petri I immediately bought it back.
That is when the fun started and the build began. My son is a mechanic (at Toyota!) and he loves the Patrol.
First thing fitted was a Lockrite auto front locker. Completely transformed the Patrol off road. Best money you can spend. Then fitted Stofpad rocksliders, bashplates, Mellville and Moon seat covers, snorkel, roof rack with side awning, Howling Moon roof top tent, TPMS, VHF, bull bar, modified rear door for better opening, fitted 285/75 x 16 Cooper muds, got the rear door inner table from Tinus and did all sorts of small odds and ends. The Patrol is now well equipped and a very nice off road and general use 4x4.

Many would reckon I was stupid to downscale from a 4,2 Td Y61 to a Y60 petrol Patrol. I T O fuel consumption ? Yes. I T O "Love at first site" it being a RED GQ .. no contest.

Done a number of thingies to Mussa since I bought it last December.
Changed 15" to 16" wheels and fitted Cooper STT Pro [Dankie Tinus & P C]
Replaced the roof rack with an Outback rack [off a Landrammel, nogal]
Fitted a drawer system
Fitted my BUNDUTOP tent
Fitted a ROSS [Marius Rossouw] power panel - NOW I can do our Jesu's film Outreaches wherever
Fitted other coils & spacers & shocks
Fitted P C bash Plate and Transfer case protector

Next on list [and last on list] Replacement Bumpers front and rear

Satrurday I joined the NOROC [Nissan Off Road Owners Club] - Only got this video to show for it :woo: :woo:
