    Default Project: SWB V6

    Hello

    I found another POS V6 project.

    This time it is a 1998 Pajero Gen 2 3.0 v6 manual non blister fender.

    I'll post some pics just now.

    A brief history:
    It belonged to a guy in Plett who let his employees use it.
    They subsequently lost the keys.
    The SWB then went to a local workshop who tried to get it running.
    They went very successful.

    Suddenly the employees found the keys.

    When the previous owner went to the workshop to give the keys to the mechanics to get it going be discovered that, the SWB had been abused.

    Immobilizer box missing
    Sound system stolen
    Battery stolen
    Windscreen badly cracked
    Side sliding window broken
    Lights bulbs broken to use to smoke drugs, ()
    Sand/ash all over the interior.
    Cigarette butts between windscreen and dash.

    Yes, it was a bit ISM.

    Fortunately enough I managed to irritate the owner enough that we worked out a deal whereby i could gain ownership.


    It has been and still is fun and games.

    I would add I post once a find some pics.

    Maybe I can add something now:

    Yes. Unfortunately the artisans who did the bodywork did half-hearted job.

    So it has been resprayed in a normal gloss black.

    I am very very interested in this project of yours
    Please keep us up to date as to how the project progresses
    Any idea what engine you are going to put in ?
    PS ;
    I have seen some machines with a sort of army flat / matt olive drab type of military paint job
    Looked VERY cool and fitted the vehicle well
    In OEM I always thought that the grey finish was the nicest one for this model.

    Strange what difference -- MUD tyre -- makes to the appearance of the vehicle

    New coils.
    Or coil spacers.

    Also turn up the front torsion bars.

If you can't come right with windows..my switches packed up and maybe the doors circuits, anyway being stuck in Loxton and no joy sourcing part over phone, I got sorted by using the 2 relays principle for up and down on the windows...

    Hi, Both E/W work from drivers panel.
    The passenger switch doesn't move the passenger window. Any more info on the 2 relays story?

    Hi racerx!...do you still need that info on the 2 relay layout?..if the passenger control fail to operate the windows ,while the driver side does, its more than likely the switch and or the board on the passenger side,as well as the main power feed to that door that could be at fault...that switch is the first thing to look at as it can break its little lugs quite easly...also a short could have happened in the past and the tracks on the board could have melted... Can be fixed with patience ,well depending where that is...
