Rear Bumper corner replacement

The flimsy brackets that fastens the plastic corner pieces of my Patrol's rear bumper to the chassis has broken off and I want to replace the corners with steel. With my limited knowledge of plate work it seems that it will be at least two pieces namely the side cut and bend and the rear cut and ben...

Andrew Mentis (011 255-3200) in Elandsfontein, Germiston and Larmesh (011 918-5961/2/3) in Anderbolt, Boksburg are manufacturers of expanded metal and both do it in mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. For the flimsiness you can use something thicker but then it also becomes heavier.

Re: Waarvan bou 'n mens n dakrak?

David, it is galvinised mesh that I used. Michael, on our trip to Angola I had 4 jerry cans full of petrol and 50l of water plus spares especially driving towards and through the "Doodsakker". So that was close to 200kg on the roof. The feet (6 off) are made out of 6 x 75mm mild steel bolted to the ...

Re: Hire a Patrol for Namibia

The off-road bike guys are complaining about the Zama-zama's, that "mine" in the area, are becoming a problem at the mine dumps in Benoni.

Re: Waffer rims?

Cedric, the centre hole on the Patrol rim is larger than that of the Toyota and I don't think a steel rim can be machined to enlarge the centre hole.

Re: Front Bumper en Laaistel

Ek het ook die idee gekry, ek dink Jakes se Hardbody op die site, om cardboard te gebruik as 'n template en dan die hele lot te teken op CAD en dit dan laat sny en buig. Die proffessionele ouens vra te veel as hulle dit vir jou bou.

Re: Front Bumper en Laaistel

Dawie, dit lyk baie goed, ek het ook my eie laaistelsel gebou en kyk na 'n bumper vir voor en dan wil ek ook die hoeke op die agter bumper vervang met staal.
