    DSCF1129-1600x1200.JPG this was the first trip after getting her back on the road, nothing like a boys trip to moreton island for a shakedown revealed back springs too soft, shockies too old, starter not earthing properly, and ended up running on 5 due to leaking injector line, was a great long weekend anyway, been back there since with the family, all problems fixed, love moreton.

    cool 60 Ian, I think you could almost stuff the swag under that roof basket though. That's a massive gap :p. How tall is it can I ask?

    Yeah mate its a bit high, ive got rhino legs about 200mm, good for troopys discos or saharas, planning on storing gear underneath, got2×poly pipes to store tent poles, shovel, high lift jack, solar panel, max tracks and rod holder will all fit neatly leaving the top free for other gear, looks a little unusual at the moment, ill post some pics when its all sorted.Ian.C

    Another use for it could be a solar panel that slides out from underneath using fridge slides. I'm really hoping there is a decent gap when I put a rack on the Paj that I can do that.

    Hi Ian, I've got a stock 60 series & yours looks the part.... well done! What wheels/tyres have you got & what is the snorkel? how do you rate them?

    Hi jim, the rims are steel sunrasias 15×8 with 25mm negative offset painted with killrust 4 parts black 1 part silver 1 part penetrol.The tyres are maxis bighorn 33×12.5×15, good tyres on and off road, they do wear fast because of soft compound, have used maxi all terrains 751s and got over 80000 ks, tyres only just touch back inner guards at full articulation 2inch suspension lift is enough to fit these tyres, mine has 3inch plus 2inch body lift, snorkel is a safari one I picked up second hand cheap, moved it further forward than the pattern to leave 20mm gap at the pillar, still get air flow to the quarter glass this way, made sure everything was sealed up including drain hole in bottom of removable box under airbox, happy to help with any questions, don't know everything but im a bit of a 60 series nut had this one pulled down to the chassis and completely restored, could have bought a 100series with what I spent on it, but wanted a brand new 60 series instead.

    but a 100 series wouldn't stand out on the barge nearly as much hey. Tops job there i love the old 60's too.

    Thats right, I reckon i could have sold her 10 times over the past 18months to people ive met at servos, how much, not for sale, didn't think so.

    Yeah I know, starting to think maybe I should have painted the engine bay black, especially with a diesel.
