G/DAY, can any body recommend a good 2 draw system for 98 patrol. Does price equal quality? Thank you all re LPG conversion question.

Hi SWH

what are you looking for as a "good" system - price, finish, durability, ease of instal or removal? There are heaps of systems around. We chose ours because it goes in and comes out in about an hour so we can revert to a school bus prety easily. Where abouts are you?

Regards

Gazza

Hi Gazza,thank you for your reply.We are intending doing the big one soon,in about two weeks time towing 19' van. I need to spend $2491 on LPG convesrsion, so the wife is a bit annoyed at more $$$$ on draw system.I am not concerned about being able to remove in a hurry,just a good unit at a reasonable price. Have seen prices from $925,and over $2000.I would also want fridge slide. My location is Tumut NSW 2720. I want my 98 St Patrol to keep looking excellent.Thanks again for your time.
Regards
Steve.

IMHO.. if you back yourself well enough on a power saw/drill etc.. make your own! will be cheaper.. and you get EXACTLY what you want.

Mozza,

Agree with you 100% and it also help if you are near a sheet metal place to do some bending.

Made my own and cost me one third of commercial prices. Looks pretty good as well and works nearly as good as the commercial item ( don't have fancy locks or roller stoppers).

Kind regards

Mozza & Beatit,

I picked up a set of Outback Accessories drawers 2nd hand. They are apparently 5 yrs old, and the only problem is a grinding bearing in one of the draws (where I hold around 100 kg of straps, chains, shackles, slings, winch and blocks etc). I dont really use that draw often though, being a cruiser driver.

They come with a sliding top panel (which fits my strapped down 80L waeco beautifully on it) and wastes no space. It looks fantastic, doesnt weigh a hell of a lot (empty anyway), and has done wonders in helping to getting at smaller items when all packed up for a big trip.

I also picked up the false floor which extends the top of the drawers to the back of the folded up mid-row seats- a valuable addition if only carrying one passenger.

BenSpoon,
can you suggest any particular 2nd hand joint? or were you at the right place right time.
Thanks.
Steve.

Was just in the right place at the right time (in the quokka, the bloke flogging off his 80 thought he'd sell them separately). They have been seen on ebay, from memory one went for $400, passed in from no bids.
