But doing a lemon squash hook me up . sweet i love lemon squash . [music]. [applause]. [music]. welcome to the skid factory . today we're doing a quick q&a on the td . 42 conversion with the patrol had a lot . of questions being asked about a few . things cost etc so we thought would . would cover them and and give you bit of . insight on behind the scenes one of the . first questions we always get is one how . long did it take and to him i should . have cost which is fair enough so build . time there was a pretty straightforward . so i reckon i still probably spent a . couple of weeks on it it's a bit odd for . us to put it because we're filming it . it does take longer it takes a little . longer with me pointing the camera at. our yeah starting to stop and radio . things because because i have missed it. or be it takes a little longer than . expected so and if he doesn't do that . you won't get to see what happened which . is our point of the of the show so that . happens so but i reckon if you're going . to do it yourself give yourself a couple . of weeks that the car is going to be off . the road so cost wise there was other . contributing factors i wasn't just to . get a cart in a beer and slapping in the . weekend with your mates and yes people . do that there is dodgy and quicker ways . to do things being that iv what i was . kept as a little wine to be done you . actually wad correctly to tacos working . auto shifts perfectly yeah i think that . the google walkthrough is you get power . from the wiper motor or something for . the interview wasn't it it's a lot of . dodgy stuff where you can just twitch . and type in there surefire the key it . goes but it's yeah yeah then you agree . happening and all this other stuff. doesn't work so it's reality here is . we're not cowboys so we like to do . things the right way hence why you take . two weeks . it was also christmas time so it was in . the middle of all that other stuff that . goes on it you know eating ham and . turkey and stuff like that so cost wise . again hard to say there's so many ways. you can do it i don't really ever . and how much things cost otherwise i . wouldn't do it again so i think that's . an every build though yeah it's you . might pay anywhere between 2 and 3 grand . for an old silver top with x amount of . k's on it who would know everything's a . lottery it's all secondhand stuff so . then you obviously got turbos manifolds . into coolers snorkels all sorts of . things you know there's so many ways you . can do it it's it's pretty hard to just . say it costs this much obviously getting . someone else to do it it's going to cost . a lot more because there's quite a bit . of labour and grunting and getting sand . in your eyeballs involved and not gonna . do that for free keeping him pending . miners tools here readily available to . us tig bandsaw everything we can use to . fabricate everything which again if . you're doing this in your backyard with . your mates it's a kind of thing where . you can get the engine running but you . don't have access to the rest of the . gear so you have to take it somewhere . else to get the rest of the work done . fabricating a snorkel which made it easy. it's yeah was a it's that easy it's . still thankfully process to get that . done so yeah so cost wise it's whatever . you want it to be probably gonna cost a . minimum of five grand i'd say but tony . bought an engine and a turbo if you . didn't need to call it but obviously . it's not gonna be as good as in to corn . and the pumps and loads of boosts so . there's there's levels one of the other. questions we get is why'd you do it we . did go through that in the video but . sometimes it's easy just to go over it . again the reason why we do these . conversions is because the engines that . are in them a ship so the tt 42 is the . least crap it is an old engine you know . like it's not you can't sugarcoat it . there's still a lot of hate with a teen . a 42 though a lot of people you know . weak mean i think it's many other other . manufacturers don't like love it's the . whole big of a 26 verse 2 j zed debate . again in the. in there for drive well really and to be . honest rb 26 verse 2 gaz said it's . pretty much the same with 1042 versus . one hdt the toyota engine is a lot . better but it's also ten thousand . dollars versus verse two thousand . dollars and it also doesn't bolt. straight in which the td 42 does so it's . kind of a silly argument to say hey why . didn't you put a one hdt in it we didn't . put a 1 hd tuner because they're $10,000 . second here's put your mac's in there . dude. well the duramax costs about the same as . a 1 hdt and it'll probably cost about . the same to fitted as well so why . wouldn't you put a duramax in it instead . and the other engine in the middle would . be you 6 pt cummins which is only just . becoming something that people are doing . at the moment because they're like a big . truck motor on a massive engine about . 500 kilograms so there's a bit of debate . whether it's even legal to put them in . there because of the axle weight that . said there's plenty of starting to pop . up now because people are making . adapters to allow them to bolt straight . to the tv 42 manual gearbox so it makes . it a pretty easy swap compared to a germ . acts with an allison which is a massive . job i know that because i've done it to . my own vehicle my previous ti very quick . car at the end of it but it's typically . expensive even with my skills where i . can do everything myself yes the dozer . get me man and i'll see you doing that . with you yeah remember this chassis . sitting over in the corner there i've . blocked it out of my mind that was a . massive build huge i think i was here . every weekend helping him out that was . the time i was building the crusader we . had to get it out of the way i made him . help me so he can worse than his . procedure using the hoist and everything . else so yeah so that's the reason why we . do the conversions disregard td 42 why . do you use the patrol or wire patrol . well the thing with the patrol is that . the chassis is is really good like as in . not the chassis rails but the the design. it's really good for for driving it's . got a lot of suspension movement like . articulation if they're quite . comfortable to riding because they're . for coil the dips are huge it's only . when you get into almost big engines i'm . gonna stop you there comfortable to ride . in when they're under standard height. and standard wheels and not lifted six . inches off the ground and well there. anything that makes them uncomfortable . when they lift it is if you take the . sway bars out and they wallow around all. over the place but a two inch lift is is . enough to do most non-retarded for . driving if you're in there for drive i . would you you know what it's like to . drive a car with no sway bars in a big . lift when our first got that patrol we . drove it back from where he picked it up . from and he'd go around a corner and the . whole body would sway one way and then . when you'd straighten up the body would . still kind of say tilted until you turn. the other way and then it would say the . other way who's quite a skilled lee but . it was big it handed out of like a . four-inch lifts with with really long . shocks and stuff like that no i replaced. all that because it was just it was all . worn out for a start and it was it was . rubbish to drive on the roads . it was also unregistered side to put . sway bars back in it to get road worthy . and that sort of thing . but anyway they're great cars they're . also a dime a dozen - yeah there's a lot . of them around they sold heaps of them . because they were a good car probably . reasonably priced in the day or don't i . don't recall but in my case i wanted a . ti because the interior and everything . seems better they're built better no . it's not just because it's got leather . which that doesn't really matter but . they're actually put together a bit. better when they're inside in this. weather . come into a car with degree c yeah it's . not about the leather it's about the way . that cars put together it is a better . quality car because it costs more there . was a higher spec . they don't pull the materia doesn't fall . apart is easy and i just like the look . of him with the two-tone and that and . auto i wanted to do an auto diesel so in . the audio the up the auto is awesome to. drive to yes . even though it's shift kitted and it's a . bit harsh it's it's such a nice guy just . works well with the torque of a diesel . especially particularly when it's got . the when they got feel about it appear . having when you're stuck on a hill like . this and you're feathering the clutch in . my range and you're trying to jump off . to just put your foot down and go is . awesome it's so easy it's so easy to . drive on the beach the old lazy man like . it's good on the beach where we leave . here that we can go drive in the beach . as long as you want as a stripped on the . heck mmm nice turkey not very far away . 40 mile beach they call it so i'd reckon . it'll be 40 miles - what am i on it mr. north shore google it it's beautiful . yeah very new site powerful driver . conduit at the end of the day in my eyes . the conversion was totally worth it but . it is in my car and i didn't pay a cent . for it so i know you did is it worth it . yeah yeah i was initially when we didn't . have the the big pump on it i was . definitely disappointed in the unit . performance sit around town just driving . around at low speeds it was fine but it . just had nothing on the highway you . could you couldn't really maintain speed . comfortably which was conning useless . because if you want to use it for . touring you're gonna be like covering . long distances so the pump was a massive . difference it was i i don't think i've . ever fit it apart to a car th
