Exclamation Spares or Repair

It looks odd certainly, it failed on the 12th April 2018 having covered just 22 miles to it's next fail on the 13th June 2018. Then a pass on the 14 th June 2018 - for sale for spares or repair ??

I did not realise something that looks so good on the outside could be so rusty is this a Patrol trait ?
Makes our Jeeps look good by comparison.

Perhaps it been flood damaged at the seaside.

I was going to ask a daft question, like how in hell's name does a truck get into that state.

Then maca probably hit it on the head with salt water corrosion.....perhaps too many boat launches and not enough hosepipe afterwards.....

Think I will go with after around 2000/2001 they changed the paint that they applied to the motors as they all rust though so much quicker than the older ones, Rick
