    Extra cab Ute on 80 chassis HDJ40/80

    BJ46 coming to Australia

    Just purchased a 1983 BJ46. Pretty stoked as we don't get the 40 series MWB here in Australia. Just have to get it here from NZ and that is just a bit of paperwork with the appropriate government departments and some freight and a small amount of duty.

Decided a while ago to get the engine if by the off chance that I wanted to get rid of the 350 Chev that was in there.

    Hi all, A few months ago we had our annual 40's run to a country town called Jamieson, in Victoria Australia. We had 7 40's turn up for the trip and a few others as well, mostly Nissan Patrols. It was a great few days and we had a great time. It's usually held at the same time each year...

    Spongy pedal on rear disc brakes

    Hi all, I have recently installed a TSM kit with the El-Dorado calipers that have the parking/hand brake (e-brake to most of you). I haven't put the hand brake cable on the system yet as thats a different weekend job, and I now have a spongy pedal. I have an 82 with a 7/8" master cylinder...
