Re: 222K Overlanding Parts Kit

I Highly recommend replacing the suspension bushes at 200+ Km it is very likely the dreaded death wobbles might start. Also with the auto a good flush and clean of the gearbox is not a bad idea.

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

So with lockdown being fun and all I surprisingly didn't work a lot on my car. So post initial lockdown I did get into a few projects. First up was some repairs.

Re: What engine is this

Baie dankie Dit is waar. Ek het rerag mooi gedink oor die sake en die engine is net n sucker vir punishment. Hy veroorsaak sy eie stryd maar druk altyd deur. Ek het al n paar duisend kilos gery op 105 water en 600 egt’s en hy vat dit. Terwyl hy besig was om so swaar te ry het hy dit op helfde van di...
