Re: Vehicle Safe

I once saw quite a clever safe/immobilizer: The guy mounted a frame around the inside of the footwell, just back of the pedals. This was made from flat bar, I think about 10mm thick x 50mm wide. To the bottom edge were welded two bullet hinges. To these were welded a 5mm thick steel plate. This coul...

Re: HARD STARTING 1996 PATROL 4.2 SGL WHEN HOT OR STANDINGON

SP carbs in Kempton do indeed stock carb kits for this carb, but please do not actually ask them to do anything to your car. My experience with them is all bad. The hard starting after a longish stand seems to be a common problem, and the only "solution" I have found is to let it stand wit...

Bend the edges up 90 degrees and bolt them to the inside of the frame.

Re: Waarvan bou 'n mens n dakrak?

For the mesh, consider stainless instead.

Weld strips of flat bar on the edges with bolt-holes to attach to the frame. With some clever design, this could then hold the frame together and remove the need for any aluminium welding...

Re: Kaokoland via Van Zyls Pass

Everyone, includes all overlanders of all levels of experience, rather than weekend trail drivers only. If you are not used to driving trails like Moegatle, At se Gat, Rust de Winter, etc. then doing a 3 rated trail will result in war-stories afterwards. This is kind-of what I have been surmising. ...

Re: Kaokoland via Van Zyls Pass

I have often wandered about the true difficulty of Van Zyl's. I know somebody who has towed a big off-road caravan down there with a standard Pajero. The IRS model. And having driven a few trails in the company of those, i don't have a particularly high opinion of their off-road ability, especially ...

Re: Waarvan bou 'n mens n dakrak?

Whatever you do, make sure you spend sufficient time and thought to the feet. They are by far the most critical part of the rack.

I have seen roof rack feet collapse on a couple of occasions. If you can stand the extra cost, look at how Hannibal do theirs.

Re: Patrol suspension specialist HELP

Dirk, springs cannot be tested on the car. And in any event, the only degradation is in ride height. The only real way to check them is if you vave historic ride height information which you can compare to. The problem with that is that your car is evolving, so the weight keeps changing. In any case...
