I have a 1984 long wheel base patrol, I'm very happy with it, but I have a few problems with my gear box, CV joint, front diff and a lot of body rust in the back end. I'm thinking about turning it into a Ute, and would like to know how?

If any one knows how or has the blue prints, can you let me know.

I have and 1982 MQ with a SD33 engine. After refurbishing the bodywork it looks absolutely great. I have removed the fiber glass hard top and a role cage and canvas top. I had to overhaul the engine due to a faulty meter. But managed to hobble home (150 miles) with broken valves, a bent crank shaft and two messed up pistons. Got my second vehicle, but I’m not going to give it up.

I recently brought an MQ patrol, its my first 4x4 I ever owned and I am happy with it so far, I'm looking for a tail gate for it as mine is pretty wreaked, and even a 3inch lift kit, if any one knows where to find these parts or others please feel free to e-mail me on.

I've got an old 1973 Nissan Patrol. It's one of the greatest Nissan's out, but I'd say all Nissan patrols from 1970 to 1990 are all good.

I am hoping you would know where I could get some parts for my truck.

If so, email me at zacgorry@hotmail.com

Hey, I've got a 1984 Nissan Patrol with a canopy on the back. I want to take the canopy off and turn it into a tray back. If anyone could help me, please send me an email mymummysaysimspecial3@hotmail.com

I have a 84 short wheel base Nissan Patrol. It has developed a violent wobble in the front end at speeds between 50-65 km/h, then drives smooth after 65 km/h. I have had a wheel alignment and changed the tyres - no difference. Steering joints and dampers seem good. Any ideas?

I've got an 84 hardtop, heaps good ute, 250 crossflow, everything else steel. There's a problem with the front axle, try LPG heat on free hubs, but not too hot, then lock and few metres in bog cog, fwd&rev.

I had this found chassis cracks from front spring hangers every time I went through 60 KPH I had to floor it. I ended up in the passenger seat! A smash repairer was the only person who would weld it. I tried steering dampener and all your things too. NIGHTMARE.

I have a 1984 Patrol ute. I have problems with my left hand head light. It's staying dim. It's only a new seal beam lens. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

I have a Nissan Patrol 1984 ute, and have looked at your review, and want to know if there's any other problems they have?
