I had a problem with a door seal that was giving a lot of road noise, Thanks to Madfisher's advice it is a LOT quieter now.

I had to bend the top of the window frame in, that was a lot of fun I ended up blocking both front doors open with some wood blocks then wrapping rope round the tops of the doors and winding the rope tight with another piece of wood.

That gave me enough control to move the doors in enough without breaking anything.

We drove down to Melbourne today and it was a whole lot quieter sitting on the freeway at 110kph

Many thanks for the advice

No problem Doug, glad it worked.I think when I done it I wrapped my left arm arround part of the door and pushed with the other. LOL Lot younger and stronger then. Would have been close to thirty years ago.
We have the same problem with a 600 Isuzu at work and have been meaning to do something about it, but forget about it till next time I drive it.

Drop in for coffee next time you are driving it through Cowwarr.

I still have the rope and blocks of wood here somewhere :-)

That was my problem as well I remembered it annoyed me every time I drove at speed then forgot again once I got home :-( This old age stuff sucks !

I will take you up on the coffee Doug, not much chance I will have the truck though, usually only drive it to our agents in either Mudgee or Lithgow. The Truck is a nice bit of gear compared to the trucks of yesteryear. Really needs cruise though, because you are so high up 100 feels like you are stopped and it gets away on you. One of our hirers got booked at 126 and he reckons he did not realise how fast he was going till he seen the copper chasing him.
The isuzus are all very good and much underrated in comparsion to toyos. We have two Jacks and apart from the autos thirst they have been excellent.

We had a few of the Isuzu Belletts many many many years ago and they were a surprisingly good vehicle for their time.

I find the rodeo quite comfortable and very pleasant to drive, I have no problem sitting on 110 on the drive to Melbourne and really enjoy the cruise control as it would be easy to drift up in speed if you did not concentrate.

There is no lack of power for overtaking either.

Ours is an auto and gets exactly 10km to the liter so I am not unhappy about that.
