The van had the cruiser diffs but ended up looking too narrow. both the diffs are Patrol y61 diffs These are mated with an american np 205 transfer case which apparantly is bulletproof. Normal iveco 6 speed gearbox used and lastly , believe it or not -it has got a LR disco 1 series steering box because of lack of space.

    Whew. What a beauty. Sadly Ill never have the skills or time to even attempt something this complex.

    But I love the Raptor paint and the colour you ended up with! Is the mix/blend a secret or are you will to share? Just thinking my 80 Series would look good in this.

    Thank you. no ,not a secret . problem is , we kept perfect tabs what the mixture is up to a point , then my mixer just kept mixing till i smiled . Trick is you must mix it with the raptor in it and do small spray outs . The problem is finding a paint mixing company that is willing to experiment . Only the third company had the right attitude. Buy the Wegry/ Drive out of Feb which will be out on 20 Jan . In article I mention who helped me with that.

    Hi Anton, very impressive! Good to see that you are doing well.

    En die overlander is seker nie so vinnig soos die Datsun waarmee jy in die 1980's op Stellenbosch mee rondgery het nie

    One of the best thought through campers I have ever seen.

    What a fabulous build. Have yet to see a factory built camper coming close.

    Very bloody nice.

    I have a 100vx chassis waiting for something simplified. Difference is I want to use a high top Quantum. LWB.

    This car must be able to relieve the Troopie of the current workload. She needs some love.

    So I am def going to ask for your advise.

    Mike, the vx chassis will be used unmolested. As std as possable. It just has a 50mm lift and new Iron man kit.
