Fellows, hope all is going well.

My name is Sudeep and am originally from India. Came to Canada about 20 years ago. Found a 1969 Patrol in a farm not too far from here about 2-3 years ago.

My love affair for Patrols started when I was a kid in India. Dad was in the army and jonga was the vehicle of choice. Having spent most of my childhood in them seeing this one brought old memories back. Now I am not a mechanic (but have friends who are) so taking on the task of restoring this beauty was no easy decision. Anyway followed my heart and here I am two years after putting it back together (with lots of help). Needless to say I am running into some road blocks so time and time again I will be seeking your advice.

Will be posting some pics within a day or so. Just wanted to say hi.

Hey Sudeep, I've been watching your build on 60Patrol. What happened to the top of the camo Patrol you used for this resto? If you still have it and want to sell let me know.

Ratpatrol66 the camo truck is long gone the roof of the top was quite a bit rusty so I ended up scrapping it. It was about 2 years ago. I do have a spare set of rear barn doors though. Once I finish mine I am going to take inventory of what's left and post it online.

Jester the resto is already in progress. I have been at it for over a year now. I will post pics as soon as I am able to. I joined this group to see if I can get some help finding some part and also see if there is more knowledge out here that will help me along the resto. Seems like there are a few Patrolees out here as well who are not on the 60patrol forum.

Looking for shims and locking plate to mount the brake cylinders for the rear wheels. Also a brake master cylinder.
