Just asking around the forums.

Want to get the Troopy looked over for the trip.

Any recommendations for a mechanic for these vehicles in Brisbane.


Cheers

Ozdyssey, I have a home mechanic that to date seems great. Lives on the south side of Bris and has a Pajaro TD of his own. He services our three vehicles and as I said, to date has done a good job at reasonable rates name of Graham Meggs on 0412 456 676.

G'day John,
I have been using Paul Geary automotive at slacks ck. for a while now, since he was recomended to me by quite a few other EO locals, have found him honest, priced fairly and does a damn good job, and most importantly he knows what he's doing.
If you do go to him don't forget to tell him where you heard about him, reach him on 38083455.

John,
The skeleton is made from the alluminium ' Qubelok System ', available from Ullrich Metals.
I did a complete write up on it here,and some photo's can be viewed here.
If you want to know any more don't hesitate to ask or you could wait till next weekend when we hopefully can get together and see it for yourself.

That's a ripper setup Pezza- and the timings spot on as I'm trying to get it underway this weekend hopefully.

I had been told chequerplate was the way to go - looks the goods and strong and light .

Thks, will be in touch.

John,

I can highly reccomend wiating to see Pezza's efforts with his _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx before you go and build your own.......Geez that didn't come out the way I wanted it to.
Basically, it's fantastic what Pezza's done in the back of his truck....hmmm that could be taken two ways as well, I might just leave it at that.
Hope to see you at a BBQ gathering I'm trying to get going for sat or sun the 25th or 26th Feb.

Regards Trevor.

John,

In relation to your question, I have only ever heard good reorts about QDAD 38140703. I have not personally used them but have been told through the grapevine.

Hi Ozdyssey!

I use MR Automotive at Redcliffe for my Patrol. They are known as a Landy specialist but are great on other makes & models - particularly turbo diesels. Or if Redcliffe is too far try Stan Burrow Automotive in Abbotsfoot Rd. Stan is good value and whilst not a 4wd specialist knows his stuff.

Cheers
