Very Very Nice! That is for a diesel :blonde: Quick question :think: Have you been on a dirt road with it yet? Does that back wing thing keep the dust out of the back door??

Haven't had a chance to take it out yet.
I would think the spoiler should cause some turbulence to draw the dust away, I'll have to get back to you on that one.
What I can say is the back didn't get wet when it rained :biggrin:

Well done , thats a great looking patrol, enjoy!

I am actually looking to buy on of those rear spoilers (dust deflector), they are an official Nissan product with part number 73675-VB000A but it only seems like its listed for Nisan Australia as my local Nissan SA does not have the part number listed on their system?

Here is a link to it for sale http://patrolapart.com.au/product/genui ... atrol-rear

Thanks Noel

I must say, the rear spoiler is sort of growing on me now.
The only issue I have with it is the spoiler mounts to the drip rails with 2 screws on each side on a 'clamping block'. It seems like the wind moves the spoiler and as a result the screws rub through the paint.
I've touched the paint up, and I'll probably take a thin piece of silicone or polyurethane and put it between the drip rail and the block.

I'd love to get my hands on a genuine Nissan steel winch bar. (NISSAN PART NUMBER - F210-JR100AU)

The Aussies love them.
Years back I went to Nissan with a part number and I was ordering one through them.
Nissan Australia also offers a rubber and a hard rear load area liner to protect the mats and catch liquid. That's also a nice accessory to have.
