Re: Good scratch/chip removal place in Cpt?

Re: Good scratch/chip removal place in Cpt?

Thanks for the reply John Boy. Jip, that's exactly why I posted the question....absurd quotes. No doubt most of these places do decent work, however their cost vs diy cost is just way off. One can pick up a dent remover for minor dents for under R500, electric polisher/buffer plus good compounds for...

Good scratch/chip removal place in Cpt?

Hi all Find myself in a frustrating situation where I have all the rust and scratch/dent removal kit to diy, but just won't have time to remove chips and scratches (some with minor surface rust) as I go abroad on Thursday and return Dec. Leaving the minor rust is not an option at the coast. Can anyo...

Re: '99 4.2D GL

That's a seriously nice looking bakkie!! Main reason I want to sell the Patrol is that I get way too frustrated on the highways, specially when loaded. I'm sure putting money into this vehicle like a turbo, new roof or body swap or even like the bakkie shown here will turn it into a great Patrol, I ...

Re: '99 4.2D GL

Hi Everyone Back in SA in 5 days and thought I'll re-post this ad. Last time I was in SA, I only spent about 3 days in Dec and a week in Jan in Cpt before I returned to Oz, so the Patrol was in full use. Not the best idea to try and sell a vehicle mid holiday with everything and the kitchen sink pac...

3.0 td questions

Hello almal I'm asking the question below because I saw a 2006 3td for sale with a recent engine/clutch overhaul. I read somewhere the pre-2003 3td motor was the one with problems (hand grenade), but even with issues ironed out, the 3 td motor is still a gamble, specially if you're driving it a bit ...

Re: '99 4.2D GL

Thanks for the pics Dustin:) Only thing missing on these pics are the rock sliders. Will post more when in port next. I got a price from Dawid last year for a "clean" roof and it was actually very affordable, however the fitment/spray was the big expense. I reckon if someone could do the work themse...
