Re: Recommended diagnosis sparky in Cape Town??

It needs to be fixed or smokkeled long enough to get me through roadworthy. To smokkel it is easy enough. Before I redid the wiring for the passenger SRS I bridged the airbag plug with small resistor under the seat. The resistor legs conveniently sit snugly in the plug. I can't remember the exact r...

Re: Strap behind rear (middle) seats??

Skeleton Coast, Several Dirt Passes and More Southern Namibia

I was lucky enough to recently to be assigned to a project in Windhoek. A little bit of negotiation, and I managed to arrange that I drive through and I'd be reimbursed for petrol money up until the sum of what the flights would have cost... Worked with a reason - because, since I'd be stuck there o...

Re: Sam Eyles (youtube patroller)

I follow him but i gotta be honest i can't stand his style of over-the-top presentation, thinks the sun shines out his ass.

Patrol dash removal

Nissan refuted or nearly refuted my claim on the dashboard removal and their argument at the time was that the PO missed an oil service.
