Another big thankyou to Tour De Frans

Post by David Jackson » 13 Aug 2014 15:28

I have had a 3.ltr Patrol for several years and recently it went bang, like so many others.
I contacted Peter Du Toit who very kindly gave me all his experience of the same problem and put me in touch with Tour De Frans. My discussion with Frans was immediately successful as he had a low milage 4.2 TD engine available and within several weeks it was fitted and is again up and running. I wish to recommend to anyone who has Patrol issues in the Western Cape to contact Frans, as in my mind, is without question the best person to assist. His service and knowledge of Patrols is top notch.

I'm very busy on a project presently but as soon as I have a chance I will post pictures.
Thanks for everyone's support, it was a very traumatic moment for me, without this forum I would have been in big trouble.
Cheers, David
