Welcome to MUD!

Awesome truck! How does the tranny adapt to the engine? I have a 1995 Pathfinder with a rotted frame but good drivetrain. I have always wandered about fitting it under an FJ40... Got to finish my current project first...

how much did you have to spend on the personalized plates....is Aus anything like the UK where people pay HUGE amounts of money to get certain plates?

G'day thank's for the good welcoming, the engine is set up with an adapter at the bellhousing going from holden to GQ using a mixture of the two part's at the clutch and flywheel.

The coil conversion is a pretty simple set up really since it's using nissan axle's, spring's and the front is using the nissan radius arm's and the rear link's are made of extra heavy duty pipe with nissan bushes welded on the end so really it's more a heap of fabricating on the chassis mounts and the rear link and a bit on steering to take the 60 series box and panard.

The steering damper is a R,T,C it done it's job fairly well but now my dislocated thumb is telling me it's time for a new one.

Number plate cost around $300 to start then normal every year after as it's not fully personal.

Thank's again.:cheers:
