I'm not sure the "G-string" would work for everyone. If you look at the Patrol's derriere, some might consider it a "bietjie dik in die diff" and might prefer granny panties... :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

David,

No - Pro Auto did not have the clips. I got the clips at a automotive paint place near Pro Auto Rubber.

I cannot remember the name of the place. Will post it as well as part numbers and prices as soon as I get a chance to review the slips. I brought them with me for this purpose, but forgot them in the car... :(

I'll post part number / description of the trim from Pro Auto, as well as the name of the paint place and clips during the course of the day.


Thanks

Right. Part numbers and similar.

Beading Trim, I purchased from Pro Auto Rubber in Pretoria. 328 Rebecca Street, Pretoria. 0123272757.

Part number: PR178.
Description: TRIMMING EDGE.
Cost: R16.93 per metre.

The pro auto beading (right) has a slightly different profile to the standard Patrol beading (left), but I think it will work.

Trim clips, I purchased from PBS Paints. Corner Charlotte Maxeke & Ketjen street, Pretoria. 0123277022

Male clip (left)
Part number: 832.
Description: CLIPS-NISSAN WHEEL ARCH CLIP.
Cost: R5.02 per clip.

I also bought a few female clips (ie: the bit that sits in the door). But I bought considerably less because mine all seem to be good, and they're considerably more expensive.

Female clip (right)
Part number: 839
Description: CLIPS-NISSAN WHEEL ARCH CLIP.
Cost: R19.74 per clip.

Finally, Stefan, I see Pro Auto Rubber also has a branch in the fairest Cape:

Spearhead Business Park,
Cnr Montague Dr & Freedom Way,
Montague Gardens
Tel: (021) 552-9894/16
Fax: (021) 551-9808
e-mail: wayne@proautorubber.co.za

I can collect for you here in Pretoria, or you can probably just collect from there. :)

I'll post photographs once I've put the new beading on, and we can see whether it is worth the effort or not.

Cedric,

No. The Patrol beading also does not hold itself in place. It has a small amount of glue between the trim panel and the bead (you can see evidence of this on the photo of the Patrol beading.

As such, I'll be (lightly) gluing the bead to the trim with clear silicon. And then we'll see. It cannot be worse than my beading currently - I keep on having to push it back...

In any case, I'm happy to be the guniea pig. I'll replace the beading now. And then I've got my Lesotho trip at end of July, and the river trip beginning August. If the beading holds out through those two, I guess we can say it will work...

Used that exact beading on a previous Hardbody and Sani.

I found the silicone did not work so well but cleaning the beading with turps/thinners/acetone (can't remember but whatever was closest on the shelf) and then using contact adhesive worked perfectly.

Right. I spent the weekend doing some serious panel beating, as well as replacing the trim beading.

I used silicon - it worked well. I think the annoying thing is that it takes a bit of time to set. That is however, where all my wife's washing pegs and "haar-rekkies" were very helpful.

I've taken a ton of photos, and I've made notes of all the "gotchas" when removing the trim panels. There are a few. For example, there are three different types of "female" clips and two different types of "male" clips for the panels, but I've just got to get around to sorting them and uploading them.

Overall, once one gets the hang of the stuff, it really is not a massive job. A few teaser photos in the meantime.
