Hi Tejan, and a warm welcome to this very friendly forum.

About 2 years ago, I went to a scrap yard, I think in Gokul road Isipingo, to view what I had thought was a Y61, however it was your shape but petrol. If you look up scrap yards in that area you will probably find the Patrol. I cannot remember if it had the lights at the back as I left as soon as I realized it was not a Y61. The picture on the internet was not too clear or maybe I was too keen.

I am now living in Hibberdene, but if you are not able to find the scrap yard, I will locate it for you on my next trip to Durbs.

Kind regards.

Barry
Have Troll, will travel.

Thanks for the warm welcome chaps!

Much appreciated!

Yes, thanks Barry - I had swung by the Isipingo scrap yard - and did find a replacement front headlight (mine had a crack in it) but the rear tail lights were long gone. There's not too much left as far as I could see.

A chap at the roadworthy centre told me that since the tail lights were sealed, it would pass - the light output is still decent enough. So not going to replace just yet!
