Welcome welcome :thumbup: That looks like the full import, similar to Hellboy but diesel
Put some seatcovers over that leather, my guy Innocent can make a set for you :thumbup:
and I have a packing system that I am taking out of Hellboy that will fit in there

Congrats and Welcome to the Patrol family !!!

Yeah, about Micheal (I bumped into Micahel (the master mechanic))... be careful of that genius....haha :rolling: haha... remember those naughty books we looked at that we were not supposed to look at, well without realizing it, he stirs your soul into lusting over sensational power and loads of sweet diesel smoke...

But yes, anything to do with the TD42 motors, he is your guy for sure.
Stirs the soul indeed, and we didn't even chat that long. Just took me for a drive and it was over.

:welcomewave:

I probably have your Patrol's brother in the garage, also with the built plate for 1995.

Michael keeps mine on the road and for the electric stuff, Ant does the rest. :thumbup:
