Have you noticed how some 100's have a black sticky rim around the doors/window frames. Some do some don't!!! I think all patrols have it.

Anyone know why...is it a option when new or fitted after market.

The reason I ask is that I have it on mine and the black stuff appears to be 'shrinking'. I have gaps appearing around the joins in the stuff and you can see the paintwork underneath.

Purely style to give that floating roof look. It will gradually deteriorate and harden with sun exposure. You re not supposed to hang on to your car that long, the japs don't, after 6 years the re reg requirements mean its uneconomic, that's how the Japs car industry were able to get such low unit costs and thus make their vehicles so affordable on world markets.....silverback

May I add they have made them so heavy they can't even put in the long range fule tanks they used to have, well not in the new upper class model.
What a pain for the real outback outbackers.
We had to carry 8 jerry cans last real outback trip so how many would it be if we had the newie.
It will come about one day but I sure do hope they fix that problem, somehow.
Surely they realize by now they do sell these in Australia.
