so this is WAY off topic, but:
you have a patrol correct? does it have the RD26? what do you know about modding that engine? and stuff that people have done to it? We had a huge argument on here about the performance of that particular engine. PM it to me if youd like.

Nice hatch btw! cant wait to see forward progress!!
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

You sir have made an epic find.  Great looking ride, I normally do not like the so called "Turbo Hood" but it works on the GP.

Peace, Wolf

Damn, Wish i had a 2 post lift in my garage. Would make shit nice and easy
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

Indeed I would also like one. But this is not in my garage. Its a friend of mine (the same that went to collect the GP with me).

Today I drove the S12 for the first time for a longer period to get it to the registration office.

You know I always wondered what a GP model would look like with a usdm SE kit on it.  I have one laying around if you're interested.

This is an awesome find my friend.  What are your plans of duty for this thing, DD or track car?

interesting. ur rear spoiler is a little different the the two styles we are used to seeing.  and ur rear diff has a cover that looks like a later model r200 lsd cover.  GPs came with lsd?  never heard of any S12 that did.  not even the JDM RS-X

apparently some did, very few late model did come with 4.11:1 LSD r200, or it could just be an aftermaket one

idk if shortnose r200 covers fit our longnose or not.  i know the lsd will fit inside tho.  its possible that somebody installed lsd into it and replaced the cover to match... or just replaced the cover.  wouldnt hurt to pop the cover and inspect the diff.  prob needs new fluid and seal anyways :D

Car has been fixed for MOT.
Rear shocks replaced


This rubber has been replaced (dont know the name)


And its leeking here some at the gearbox


Took it for a wash



Took the car for MOT. Passed and took it for a good wash.
And then some driving. I was driving like 140kmh (like 90 mph) and then BANG! I was like WTF.

Didnt have a jack so I had to wait for a buddy of mine.




Fixed the car and just ordered new tires. Falken ZIEX 912

Rear tranny seal is probably leaking, but it's really easy to change...
