In the fitment process when we removed the mud guards, I found this surprise on both sides:

It's a really strange design on the OEM mudflaps to collect so much debris! Do you have other pictures of the rock sliders from other angles?
Cheers, Gareth

So Tinus asked me about seat covers... now I have a set of cotton canvas seat covers, very pleased with the outcome!

If you look for seat covers speak to Tinus.

Those covers look great! Let us know how they hold up.

And you still owe us more pics of your rock sliders :lol:

I posted on Anthony's - Ant's Custom Workshop" page that the Trol went to him for some TLC, here are photo's to what he has done:

The Madman was one of the first things I added to vehicle when I received it. Now with the turbo fitted I had the Boost indicator and engine oil temp reading added to the existing voltage, EGT and coolant temp and level. This was one of the BEST things I have done, as Tinus says "Om te meet is om te weet", and recently this was an eye opener for me, more in the next post...

I bought this unit from Ant when he advertised it and my son fitted it for me, what a lovely and easy to use radio.

I asked Anthony to fit a reverse camera and replace the factory fitted speakers with quality speakers. As I do not know anything about speakers, I asked for Kicker as I have heard of them, his supplier did not have stock and Focal speakers were fitted, including custom fitting of tweeters in the from doors:

Ant also fitted these spots for me, and I am pleasantly surprised on how efficient they are for their size:
