Re: Dirk's GQ Patrol got some TLC

Thanks Guys. Its something I enjoy doing and I try to do a reliable solid job of things. Personally I think anyone who buys a second hand Patrol that has had any accessory fitted should be sending it to you if they do not know how to do it themselves.

Re: Dynamat

The bakkie was a different vehicle after doing the whole cab (not doors) but I can not comment on heat as there is'nt any.

Just did the back of the GU for noise and it worked a charm.

Check Autostyle's website for prices.

For anybody who is interested I have a immaculate 60th anniversary wheel cover for sale. Not faded at all and only used once. Will fit on a 33 inch wheel.
Are Dirk's other 60 Kw and 140 Nm of torque perhaps also lying in the garage? :rolling: :rolling:

Re: 4.5 Running rough?
