It wasn't too long ago when I was introducing myself, now I am welcoming others.

Welcome to the forum.

The only advice I can give is that you try and attend a few forum events through the year. Then you put faces to names and feel more of a sense of camaraderie with others on the forum.

p.s. watch out for Tinus "the turbonator" Lotz, he may tempt you to fit a turbo to your vehicle :lol:
'98 Patrol 4.2D (turbo added)

Petrol engines generally do not need turbos....
