Snorkel finished and on
Made from 3" MS exhaust pipe $50, mitred bends top and bottom. The bend at the bottom of the windscreen is made from short wedges of pipe to give it a mandrel look. Then car bog, filed smooth, painted inside and out and a $70 brand name top.
Budget mod without looking cheep?

OK, so this is not a Pathfinder, but the shape was "stolen" from various over seas markets and the body built after market to fit on the D21 chassis. You can see the resemblance to the Pathfinder and the first gen Terrano.

Meet Hillbilly. He is a 1997 D21 "Sani" with a 2.7TD motor.

Mods so far is a 40mm suspension lift with 31" Muds. Home made rock sliders. Motor replaced about a year ago after drowning. EGT, boost sensors.

This year June we will be doing a SFA mod with a Dana diff on leaf springs.

I have been conservative with the mods to date as this is my daily drive and I put around 4000Km onto the clock per month. So he hardly gets a day off.

Love what you guys do over there, your trucks are amazing:thumb:

terrano td27

Unread post by spoonano » January 11th, 2010, 2:45 am

Here's my terrano

N/A TD27

Am currently trying to figure out the best plan to be driving a turbo terrano, whether it be putting in a turbo motor, fitting a turbo to the current engine or getting a newer terrano and fitting my box and transfer to it (manuals seem to be quite rare).

Has maxxis tyres that have lasted 2 years and 50k with 1 puncture and was repaired without issue since.

am currently researching which shock absorbers to get.

either pedders or ironman in the cheapies, or toughdogs or rancho 5000's in the medium price bracket.

I will miss my suspension setting switch :(

only other mods are a 7 inch touch screen tv/dvd/mp3 player. Cheap china sourced one, I run most things from usb or SD when offroad and hasn't had any issue other than the face flying off when getting a little bit of air.

Has been a good reliable truck!

Have more videos I can post links to if anyone is interested.

Some nice pathfinders out there, I know mine is a terrano but it's close!!

Cheers
Dom.

Close enough to a Pathy spoonano, not much difference really at the end of the day in that model

I'm finding most of the bits are identical, about to put some extractors on and hopefully get a few more RPM out of it.

The new pathfinders look sweet as! what motor is in that 2000 model?




Was out at Belanglo earlier in the week, big flat fire trails!

Bought this 93 V6 Pathy a couple of weeks back, it was dirt cheap because it was blowing blue smoke. Turned out it just needed a bit of love, gave it a good service now it dosent smoke at all.
Got it the friday of the june long weekend, then spent the whole weekend 4wding.

Couple of little issues
- The boot struts are stuffed, the main tailgate ones look pretty standard but the rear window struts look like they might be harder to get, has anyone ever had to buy them? Any ideas where i can?
- After a good couple of hours thrashing on the beach, the exhaust has become noisey around the manifold, is it common for them to crack? Or maybe the studs are just loose? Havent been bothered to have a look yet.
- Oh yeah and i knocked one of the plastic flares off in the bush, broke a bunch of clips, so i ended up pulling them all off and just polishing the paint under, might get some rubber flares from somewhere??

Apart from those little things its pretty well a very cheap near mint cond pathy, im very happy with it

Nice buy man ,
The main struts i got from autopro a few yrs back but was told to go genuine for the glass section ones so mine just stays shut now . The exhaust might just need a new gasket or it's a good chance for extractors , for the flares i just bought today some rubber ones from clark rubber as the moulded ones now scrub on my 33's . Hope this helps .

With the gas struts, you can get them re-gassed, i did that for mine and it costs about the same as buying new ones.
