More Andre,


Good looking GQ. No nonsense vehicle that just keeps going. I was the original owner of Drik''s Patrol, and it was in the family for almost 20 years. I did a host of mods , but with regard to the gull wings we opted for steel , so that the hinges could be welded to the inside of the door. I wanted a clean look. We used the rear (3rd row) seat belts mounts and the rear grab handle to mount the hinges. Finding the hinges was a challenge as they need to push out before opening.


Good work and please keep us updated. (grantfrancis1@gmail.com)

Hi Grant and Friends

Thanks for the reply, hinges is definitely a challenge, would have love to see how you did that.

Diesel Electric has a alternator, but it is 24V...krisis. Any-way, took it to my normal autolek, and he repaired it for R880. Better than getting a new one. Took him less than 3Hours.

I fitted the new second hand grill and new indicator lights, man this Old Madam is looking like a proper beast, and I am really enjoying driving her. Now to finish that rear towbar so i can hook up the Xcape and go camping!!!

Will post pic of the new refreshed look!!

Regards

Baie mooi Andre, regtig impressive wat jy gedoen het :clap:

Kan ek vra dit jy net die foto's resize voor jy dit post, die fotos is 8mb groot en baie ouens se internet is bitter stadig so sukkel om dit oop te maak.
Ek het hierdie vir jou gefix :thumbup:
