I have a 1970 something cruiser bakkie (Model HJ 45RP) and I want to convert the front wheels to disc brakes. Advice needed pls? It is a 3.8 diesel. I would like to add power steering as well - anybody done it?

I need various spares like a door handle - can anybody recommend where I can look for small items like this?

Workshop manuals?

I will appreciate all the help I can get.

Hi . Call N1 4x4 , talk to Sydney .

All the above can be done and its bolt on .

All 45 & 47 mod are using same parts exc body panels .

Some later mod did come out with disc brakes . You can also do the back disc conv . Spares are scares but they are avalible .
