Default Been on here a while so i thought i would say hi!

So, I've been on here for ages, but haven't really been active...

I'm from Melb, and I used to own a Green J-Top (Soft top SWB).....

https://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum...ad.php?t=11115

I then bought another Paj in Sri Lanka... See Pics below.

After having it for 2 years, and only using it when I actually holiday in SL, I decided it was time to try and get a little bit more power from it..

Thanks to the guys on here and the previous threads, I was able to get enough grunt out of the 30 year old car to be happy. It's not a drag car, but it's enough to be able to overtake a slower car if needed!

So, i'm going to assume most of you dont know the way the car market works down in SL. Vehicles are EXTREMELY expensive in SL. For example, the Paj i bought is a 1986 model, which has had the entire body replaced a few years prior to me purchsing it, with an entire body that had been brought down from Japan.

The cost of the Paj in 2015, was approximately $30,000 AUD....

Since then, the price has gone up and its worth about $35,000 AUD at the moment. Don't try and figure this out, cos even i'm stumped as to why prices of vehicles go up over there!

Anyway, let me know your thoughts!

Cheers

I love the centre gauges.... they are not standard are they??
mine has the oil pressure on the left... inclinometer in the centre and volt meter on the right
and so have pretty much every one I have seen

are they a standard fitting in SL imports?

anyway.... great looking Paj

to be honest, not a fan of the mitsu badge... the previous owner stuck it on there, and if i take it off now it'll leave a mark!

Interior and exterior (apart from the foggies) are all standard.

Gauges are the Jap import gauges, and the flares came standard on the Exceed model (which this is)

These gauges and the wheel fares are standard on Jap import exceed models. I have the same on my import shorty.
