Re: Driver's seat back problem

The GUII seats have a little leaver on the side above the center console that adjusts the lumbar support.

Hope you come right.

Some engines froth the oil if there is too much and air bubbles degrade the oil...

Note the chrome door handles (suggesting the GRX spec) but with the top-mounted intercooler scoop.
That spec was not available in SA.
Neither was the ST decal on ours. Just a deserter that bought a patrol.

Re: LED taillight replacement experiment

The dummy lights are an area of general confusion for the roadworthy people. The guy came to me in a general panic while they were doing the roadworthy checks!! "There are not even bulbs in the lights" he said!! :rolling: Ihad to explain to him about the spare mounted to the back door and all patrol...
