I thought what new plates would suit the old wizard and thought these would look good on it.
I'm going to be putting it up on the blocks this weekend for a bit more work on it fix the oil leak from the sump gasket and new snorkel bulbar winch and reset the torsion bars to lift the front a bit to take the extra weight.
And install the 120 amp alternator and dual batteries in it so I can go out for a trip somewhere after school holidays are finished haven't decided where I will go to yet.

Done a ball joint flip today but still have it up on the stands until I finish a few more things on it at the moment put new glow plugs in as well waiting for a couple of things to get delivered as well so just fixing leaking oil pipe and rocker cover gasket and done the sump gasket as well today was missing 2 10mm bolts so put new ones in.
Might install the snorkel tomorrow see how I go with a few other jobs on it first that need to be done.
But its starting to come together so I might make a good truck out of the wizard yet.

stardog,
Can you get a shot of how the front bar connects to the frame?
That setup is different from the front bars they sold in the colonies ...

They bolt on to the same points as the factory bumper. Very common on Japimports
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

Dinger do you mean the chrome nudge bar like geeves said they are standard bolt on most jap 4x4s.
I will try and get a photo of the mounts I will be removing it soon to put the bulbar and winch on the wizard just got to get my Isuzu mojo back been a bit crook lately.
Had to have the wizard air con re gassed and a new pipe made up all nice and cold now in the cab.
The same pipe blew in my Mu as well so probably look around the wreckers for 1 this weekend.
Ben good to see you remembered your password for club Isuzu.

steve I just finished the AC conversion in the Mu.
Cause the compressor seized years ago & couldnt find a replacement (zexel)

MU is 4jg2 (3.1td)
I used :
2nd hand 2.8 rodeo a/c bracket (yes it bolts to the 3.1)
New Sanden A/C compressor (later tf model)
Tf rodeo condensor & drier
Tf rodeo HP lines
MU Evapourator - HP fitting was modified to fit the rodeo line (metric to imperial)
used the Mu LP line which runs along the firewall.
Custom LP hose with MU fitting to firewall & rodeo fitting at compressor.
Gassed it to 550 600.
Didnt blow cool air , gave up thinking the TX valve is rooted.
restarted it a couple weeks later & the A/C was working/ cycling.

Thanks Ben I will have to get a photo of the pipe before I take it out and after its out. its the 1 that connects to the compressor hose next to the main battery and runs through the grill to the condenser at the front.
The same thing happened on the wizard its a aluminum pipe funny shaped as well I will take it out tomorrow and have a look might be able to get fixed like the wizards.

Couple of improvements to the wizard bulbar and winch finally swapped them over from the MU.
Just got to wind torsion bars up a bit new to level it out with the extra weight
The MU looks a bit naked with out a bull bar on it now.

My wheels and tires look small now I was wondering if this has anything to do with it happening.
