Great werk wat jy gedoen het. Wat was jou prosedure om die rims te verf? Het jy die tires afgehaal en die hele rim geverf of net buite en watter verf het jy gebruik?

Groete
Hi Marino

Baie dankie, man om eerlik te wees is die rims verf baie maklik gewees. Die rims is net mooi afgeskuur en dan het ek dit geferf met 2k low gloss verf wat jy by enige automotive verf winkel kan kry.
Ek wou dit matt hê en vir dit gooi jy net n matting agent in, dis basies ook 2k verf wat dit net matt maak. Ek het hulle so 50/50 gemeng om hom baie matt te maak

Ek het sommer net die tyre toe geplak omdat ek swart geferf het, al verf jy die tyre raak dan sien jy dit nie

Things I still want to do in order

1. Make a youtube video to show Marinus and Ian that it can do 160km/h with ease on a straight road and not down a mineshaft
...
Going 160 is not the problem.
Going beyond that, is.
With lifts and lots of chunky rubber between you and tar, I am not keen on pushing beyond that.

I think a more useful statistic is the torque at different levels of revs, to indicate ability to overtake and doing long dunes.
As for all other uses (other than overtaking and long dunes) it is a matter of knowing your engine and how to use it on the different terrains.

Michael, I envy your skills
I so wish I could use my hands better. I think one can get a great sense of achievement in doing such projects.
