Re: 2010 17" GRX RIMS WANTED

Thanks Fanus, i'll let you know. Pete, how long did it take to do per wheel, and does the tyre need to come off each rim in order to machine the rim?

Re: 2010 17" GRX RIMS WANTED

Ok, so, if I can machine my current rims to fit the Patrol hubs better, then no need to replace them - or if anyone can help out with the correct spacers to overcome the problem then I will be really grateful as my rims really do look cool and I would prefer to keep them! I remember a thread some ti...

I don't pick anything up with normal everyday driving, hard, short braking etc. As soon as i'm on a long downhill and have to brake the steering sta...

Re: Over heating problems

My radiator cap failure started exactly like that - we pushed the vehicle in the sand, but temp gauge remained normal. When I switched off, I heard a boiling sound which was in fact water / air blowing back through the cap into the plastic reservoir. While driving normally over the next two weeks, I...

Re: Help required near Beaufort West

Thanks guys - it was quite an ordeal! Pete, you don't want anyone to repeat the language I was using with the shifter - my "Troll never came with any wheel spanner, I just bought a standard crossover wheel spanner, not thinking about the jack handle.
