Terwyl jy nou daar besig is met jou grinder moes jy sommer jou platanna-exhaust ok bietjie uitgesort het.

Jy het seker gereken dit is hoog tyd, siende dat die river trip aan die kom is?
Is dit makliker om ouwe een te maak eerder as ou een regbuig?

I'm confused about this photograph. The vehicle appears to be on the side. Was this bumper done for a fortuner ? :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

I'm also keen to see the final product Tinus :gotpics: My Patrol's plastic rear bumper has taken a few knocks over the years and I'm in two minds whether to have it resprayed or fit an affordable (if there is such a thing) replacement steel bumper.
