    Because 130's don't have ladders, and only 130's matter !

    Super handy having such a quick flat surface available near the back door.
    After much testing, it appears to make a pretty good bar!
    Cheers.....

    Hi Rob,
    I get asked this a lot.
    We pretty much live out of the back door pockets, keeping all our go-to stuff (tie downs, torches, lights, gloves, pooping kit, towels, toiletries, cups, plates cutlery etc etc) in there to avoid rummaging about in the back. This set up, combined with the gullwing access to the fridge suits us super well.

    The bottom one is from tuff-trek in the UK, it's top notch.

    The top one i sketched up and got made by a canvas guy. We made it to suite, cups plates, cutlery etc. I riveted some alum sail track (bunnings) at the top of the door and a rope edge in the top of the organiser. The bottom is just 2 brass eyes and those little plastic toggle things riveted to the car.

    i have attached a better photo and the sketch i sent the guy.

    Cheers, Dan

    Are you going to replace the engine?

    I plan to purchase the upper door organizers.

    In the past weekend, I installed a front runner tailgate table. The table itself is designed for a jeep wrangler but I just extend the spare wheel carrier bolts and drill secure the table on these extended bolts.

    Table $160 so I didn't bother making my own...

    At this stage I am looking at rebuilding with a new set of pistons.
    Has a slight line in the bore but you can't feel it with a fingernail so will get the block honed and go from there.
    Going to replace intercooler hoses and coolant hoses.
    Plus clutch.
    Intake is dirty as expected so I will fit a catch can and pre fuel filter.
    New injectors as well.

    Ninetubes - those pockets are great.

    I've been looking for a molle thing for the back of the front seats in the 130, as that'd be a great storage option for me, but they are ridiculously expensive.

    Took off the faded headlight surrounds and grille, primed with plastic primer and repainted with matte black auto spray. They looks as though they're straight out of the factory! Very chuffed for such an easy tart-up.

    Pressed “go” on orders for Traxide combo headlight wiring upgrade and Ashcroft centre ATB. Both are pre-emptive strikes:
    - Want to avoid headlight switch leaving me in the dark some future day.
    - Want to ensure I have the ATB on hand for whichever future date might see gearbox dropped. Have a fair bit of slop back in driveline and suspect the spud shaft. If that lets go, will have the transfer box opened up and centre diff replaced with the Ashcroft beastie.

    Edit: How fast is that.. ordered the centre diff/ATB from Ashcrofts on Friday evening my time (before midday their time)... and it was delivered at 7.30am this (Monday) morning my time!
