Congratulations Ricky! That is a good buy i must say. Am interested in the older Pajero for a cousin of mine and shall PM you once i have spoken to him.

As far as the Utsav Plates go they are available ot Patel Bros. CP Outer Circle for 700 + taxes. with the special breakaway nuts.

Maybe the price you paid included handling and postage.

You are welcome, the older Pajero is in the classifieds & I did respond to your querry.

I order my Utsav Plates on the net. They were home delivered with a bill for what I paid..surely they'd be cheaper if bought off a shop. Do factor in fuel costs of travel up & down.

Cheers

One thing I have learned the hard way though, is never spend on a vehicle like you own it, that is IF you wanna sell it in the next year or so. NO ONE - read NO ONE appreciates the fact that you spent a large chunk of money for it to be in pristine condition..but habits die hard as they say.

No B-hpian & his distant cousin is ready to believe the amount spent on my older Pajero...that she is good to go for many more miles without a penny spent.....I got OE suspension & more but NO BODY wants to give credit for that.

For a third party it is a 1998, end of story.


Sad but true

The older Pajero is generating a lot of interest, but the numbers did not match up so far.

As for the Amplifier you can contact Jasdeep or Gunbir of BBW Distributors. Do not remember the cost as my install was a whole package. Should be around 8k not sure though

Hi,

As I mentioned in the other thread - no news from Racetech guys :-( . The RRR guys have the "Spider' box that needs to be installed and the cost would be approx 26k for the same. This is not a plug and play box but would need to be wired separately.

I would have loved to do this but as I am planning my Ladakh trip in May/ June don't want to touch this except for the suspension and snorkel which has been installed.

I have some spare time next week so will make a visit to the Racetech workshop.

Cheers

Hi Ricky, did you extend the differential breathers of the Pajero when you were doing up the vehicle? If yes any photographs and the work/ time involved in doing this?

Cheers

So did you try a Pajero running the Spider Box ?? Wonder how good it is in real world situations ?

Best of luck for the Ladakh trip, what suspension are you running ?

Ricky, remember you complaining about 'Pajero' stickers on your Pajero (and the ones sold here). I think even old gen LC's used to sport similar ones!

HI,

I changed to Old Man Emu suspension. It is firm compared to the standard and does make some difference while going through turns and undulating roads. Will be doing a longish trip in the next couple of weeks so will have a better idea.

As you have mentioned, I am not taking a chance on putting in the 'Spider' Box. Hopefully after my return from Ladakh (if I can make it this year.. so not doing any planning will just take off), I should have some of my stuck funds released so might indulge then!!!

The diff breathers are pipes from the differential to ensure that there is escape mechanism when the diff gets heated. However while fording as the diff cools fast, there is a potential for water to get into the diff and bad things can happen... So it is advised to pull these pipes as high as possible... will try here in Bangalore and revert.

Cheers
