What's the story on that 4Runner? Abandoned? Looks like it was pretty nice. I also thought it was your Pathy at first!

 Yeah, I actually didn't realize how much it looked like my Pathy until I uploaded the photos. It's uncanny lol. I gave my friends a good scare with that one. 

 

I have no idea what happened to the Runner but it looks like a head on collision. No trails above so it wasn't a roll. Funny thing, on my way out a few hours later, a flatbed stopped by me as I was airing up. The trooper following him had to get on the horn and tell him I'm not the one.

For all us non-Australians “ANZAC is an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, a grouping of several divisions created early in the Great War of 1914–18”

1st shakedown trip done and dusted, the only thing that needs work on is my front sway bar mounts, by the end of the day they were pretty noisy. Any ways here is some pictures of Saturday arvo wheelin' in the wilds of Tassie. I got a few pics, but I will keep it to pictures including the Pathy to stick to the "random pictures of your R50" mantra, no one wants to see a heap of pictures of the Tassie bush.

 

The crew for the day, mixed bunch, 4, 6, and 8 cylinders all represented ?

The day's location Borradaile Plains Hut. Hut was originally a cattle grazers and snarer's hut, the original hut burnt down in the 1950's, but was rebuilt soon after. It is privately owned, but visitors are accepted as long as the site and buildings are respected.

A few weeks ago now I was browsing FB marketplace and came across this 95 wd21. Though its not mine, my brother ended up picking it up as his first car for $800. Listed as "Parts or Project". So we made it a project... Sadly its not a manual to match mine, but the auto is cool I guess. Suprisingly it also came with the Haynes service manual too which to me was pretty suprising.

It's deffinetly going to get some rear bumper treatment like mine and a proper exhaust as the old was was all holes. There is no rust in the sunroof area, only on the lower exterior. The frame is fully intact with no holes or any cracks (so far). 

 

Had a small valve cover leak on the passenger side, for 187km, not too bad in there IMO.

When we picked it up it was a no crank no start. Assumed to be alarm because it went off one day and never ran again was what we were told. We ended up buying it regardless, but that night my dad was tracing wires and found a fuse. Pulled it out, the dash light turn off and it fired with the key. So far we have yet to find anything that doesn't work on it.

 

(tried posted imgur HTML embeded, didnt want to work for me sorry)

Sharp looking truck! Always liked the green/chrome. Rear bumper looks like mine when I got it, looked like a replacement that wasn't plated or painted on the inside. The alarm system is really easy to get rid of on the WD21. A few wires are scotchlock'd in, the rest just unplug and the harness plugs back into itself like the alarm was never there.

Good to know. Where we live and where it will stay we arent really concerned with an alarm, plus it makes room for a modern one. Honestly wasn't a fan on the green but its kinda growing on me the more I look at it. It has very few swirl marks and was cat guarded, so no rodants.

 

I'll get more pictures of it too once we really get deep into it. While my dad was cleaning it, he said all he could think about was how its cleaner than his 05 F250 Lariat Diesel. Mom and I could help but laugh. Cant wait to see what it turns into since I have no control over what gets done to it.

R33 GTST brake calipers

Unfortunately these use smaller 19mm bolts and would either need the following to run safely:
- sleeves through the knuckle, or
- re-thread/tap? the calipers to fit the bigger 22mm bolts.

Very cool. These are obviously 4 pot brakes, but will they actually make a difference? Personally, I feel like the stock calipers aren't powerful enough. Having another option would be awesome!
