Niceee, gotta love the old landy's.

Whats the plan for it?
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

Looks fantastic nice job. Good to see the passion for classics being kept as a classic is still around.

Well its registered. Its been interesting driving it around in traffic. Not as bad as i thought though. Ive also managed to get a hold of the original rear canopy for it, so thats getting picked up next week. Next thing on my wish list to find out what kind of radio it would have had in it and try and source one.......
I also want to throw a swag in the back and take it away for a weekend soon.

Very Nice! now what about an army issue trailer to go with it?. Ive heard landys ( or someone else) made a powered trailer that ran off a PTO. Is that right?

Looks great Eraser, love it. I have seen you around the Western Sydney/Blacktown area in your Hilux so will keep an eye out for this. Should be easy to spot!

I missed out on a trailer a while back. Im looking for one but im not holding my breath. Has to be a matching workshop trailer. As for the driven trailer i dont know enough about army stuff, but i have heard about it.
